My Mom cracks me up. She can find her way blind folded to any shopping mall, but when it comes to driving 10 minutes up the street to her friends house, well, that’s another story. That 1o minute drive turns into 4o minutes and then requires an escort after 10 calls. Then there’s the GPS. The damn GPS always tells you to turn in a half mile. NOW HOW ON GOD’S GREEN EARTH IS SHE SUPPOSED TO KNOW HOW FAR A HALF MILE IS??? And the GPS lady is so mean! Just because my Mom isn’t really listening to her, doesn’t mean she has to yell at her! Anyway, it’s times like this when you need a snack. So this one’s for you Mom, just in the off chance you get lost again.
Here’s Mom! She loves NYC. This is a photo from her visit to see her grandson, Jason. Luckily she didn’t have to drive in NYC, there’s taxis for that.
Zucchini, Red Onion and Herbed Goat Cheese Flatbread
- 1 prepared pizza dough
- 1/2 red onion, thin slice
- 1 zucchini, thin slice
- 8 ounce log of goat cheese
- 1/4 buttermilk
- handful of basil leaves, chiffonade
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Freshly grated parmesan cheese
- Olive oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
Roll out the pizza dough to fit the sheet pan. Combine goat cheese with buttermilk to create a spreadable consistency. Add basil, salt and pepper to the goat cheese mixture. Spread half of the goat cheese mixture on half of the pizza dough. Sprinkle with a generous amount of parmesan cheese. Using the parchment paper as a guide, fold the pizza dough in half lengthwise. Spread the top with then remaining goat cheese mixture. Place zucchini in a row along the right and left sides, and the onion in a row down the center. Sprinkle with more parmesan. Drizzle with olive oil.
Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Notice all the wine. Greg and Silvia picked up a few bottles for us at Amazing Grapes, their wine store in Rancho Santa Margarita. Go check it out. They have a really cool wine bar.
