1 pound pizza dough (regular or whole wheat), thawed if frozen
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
6 ounces fresh goat cheese, crumbled
2 small zucchini and/or yellow squash
Herbs of choice


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Place pizza dough on an oiled baking sheet and stretch dough to form an oblong crust, about 15 inches long and 11 inches wide. Brush with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Sprinkle with garlic and dot with goat cheese. Using a vegetable peeler, peel wide, thin strips of squash, and place them on the pizza; stop when most of the pizza is covered (do not put too much squash on the pizza or the crust may become soggy).  Sprinkle oregano over the pizza, or another type of herb of choice. Drizzle remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Bake until crust is browned and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes.
