Ingredients (4 servings)
  • 4 green and yellow zucchini
  • 1 white onion
  • a bunch basil
  • a little olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 sprig thyme
  • 1/2 Sainte-Maure de Touraine cheese
  • 20 pieces oven-dried tomato
  • 20 pitted black olives (Taggiasche, preferably)
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • salt

Pizza Dough

  • 1 teaspoon baker’s yeast (or 1/4 sachet dried yeast)
  • 5 1/8 ounces fine pastry flour (145 g)
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons cold water


Step 1: Pizza Dough

Dissolve the yeast in a little warm water. Combine the flour, salt, olive oil, and cold water in the bowl of a mixer.

Mix at a slow speed until you have an even dough.

Shape into a ball, and cover with a damp cloth. Leave to rise at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.

Step 2: Zucchini

In the meantime, wash 4 green and yellow zucchini. Cut two of them into thin rounds (about 2 mm) and the other two into small cubes (1/8 inch (5 mm)), removing the seeds.

Peel and thinly slice 1 white onion.

Rinse, dry and pick the leaves from a bunch of basil, then chop them.

In a frying pan, gently sauté the zucchini cubes, covered, with 1 crushed garlic clove, the leaves of 1 sprig of thyme, and a little olive oil, for 10 minutes.

Crush with a fork, season lightly with salt, and add the chopped basil. Mix well.
