When you have kids there’s a period of time when you are inundated with pizza parties –– from school functions to birthday celebrations –– pizza is the quick and easy, crowd-pleasing answer for most of these events. In the beginning, I would have a slice to partake in the festivities at times but I soon realized I was wasting my valuable caloric intake on mediocre pies. I am not a pizza snob by any means, I have just reached the point in my life that if I am going to eat a slice well … I want it to be good. Last week at the markets, I noticed many summer-y things trickling in such as peaches, berries and now … zucchinis. I have long adored these green beauties and I believe them to be quite possibly my favorite of the squashes. It was a year ago when I decided to make a pesto out of zucchini and now I am using it for my pizza topping in this adult-approved, kid-friendly, and calorie worthy Zucchini Pesto & Ricotta Cheese Pizza.
