Courgette, ricotta and nutmeg pizza

By Lauren Photography by Kate
 

A light, summery pizza, perfect fresh from the oven or off the grill. Use this dough recipe for the ultimate pizza crust. Definitely worth the effort of making your own!

Shave ribbons of courgette, toss with olive oil and pile high for maximum deliciousness. If you are lucky enough to have any courgette flowers, then are a beautiful looking and tasting addition. I love to add a little lemon and some Parmesan to the ricotta, it adds a pleasant sharpness.
