Ingredients

  • One 8-inch ready-made pizza crust
  • 2 Cups diced fennel
  • 2 1/2 Cups grated zucchini
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Cup reduced-fat mozzarella cheese

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Sauté the fennel, grated zucchini, and a pinch of hot pepper flakes in the olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat for 5 minutes, or until fennel softens. Spread over the ready-made pizza crust. Sprinkle with the reduced-fat shredded mozzarella cheese. Bake the oven for 5-7 minutes, or until cheese melts.

Cheesy Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Cheesy Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.
