Pizza with Pate di Fiori di Zucca, Grilled Zucchini & Tomatoes

Il Fornaio pizza dough, topped with Pate di Fiori di Zucca, grated mozzarella, grilled green and yellow zucchini, chopped heirloom tomato, and fresh mozzarella.

This summer pizza was mild and delicious. The Zucchini flower pate was used in place of tomato sauce, and, along with the fresh mozzarella, made this pizza unusually delicate.

I added a few pine nuts post-photo, which added texture beautifully. If only there had been zucchini flowers at the farmer's market today!

Hi Catherine, I have lots of zucchini flowers growing in my garden and would like to know how one makes zucchini flower pate.
Thanks, Duane Marcus @ The Funny Farm.
