Zucchini and meyer lemon pizza

I have to admit that I had never tasted meyer lemons before. But have heard so much about it and they are in the market now. Every store seems to be carrying it and everyone seems to be talking about how delicious they are in pies and other desserts or even otherwise. I believe they are available for a limited time during the year so I was keen to try some. I am not very good with making pies or other beautiful looking desserts but I still wanted to use these lemons. So I decided to put them in a pizza. I found this recipe of a zucchini pizza on the blog --eatliverun and LOVED the idea. What a great way to incorporate veggies! I added chopped meyer lemons to the cheese and it was delicious.


two zucchinis (grated)
1/4 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
black pepper
crushed red pepper
italian seasoning herbs (dry)
one meyer lemon chopped
two clove garlic
two soy pita bread

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Mix black pepper, crushed red pepper, minced garlic, crushed oregano, rosemary and chopped meyer lemons in a  bowl. Add the ricotta cheese and mix everything well. Grate the zucchini and squeeze excess water from it. Mix it with the mozzarella. I like to add some garlic here too.
Take a pita bread and spread the ricotta cheese mixture on it. Top it with the zucchini and mozzarella. Sprinkle red pepper flakes on top. Bake till the pita bread becomes crisp and the cheese has melted completely.
