Zucchini & Mushroom Pizza Topped with Squash Blossoms & Pine Nuts

Another scrummy pizza! This time I used pesto as my base on Trader Joe's plain pizza dough and added garlicy grilled zucchini, sliced mushrooms, Heirloom tomatoes, and mozzarella. I topped the pizza off with strips of my last two squash blossoms, a little torn basil, and pine nuts.

The squash blossoms looked pretty, but were overwhelmed taste-wise by the other ingredients. That said this was a succulent summer pizza that hit the spot. Next time, perhaps, I'll top a pizza with a crowd of lightly sauted julienned blossoms. Suggestions welcome!

Anyway, this veggie-laden pizza is this week's juicy contribution to Sweetnicks ARF/5-A-Day Tuesday (ARF=Antioxidant Rich Food).
