This simple and delicious pizza is fabulous hot from the oven as a main course, but works equally well as a room-temperature appetizer. Just cut the pie into 2-inch squares and serve. Garnish the pizza with fresh basil or oregano and a sprinkling of sea salt if you like.
1 pound pizza dough (regular or whole wheat), thawed if frozen
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
6 ounces fresh goat cheese, crumbled
2 small zucchini and/or yellow squash
Preheat the oven to 450°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 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). Bake until crust is browned and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes.
