Zucchini and goat cheese pizza

imageAvoid posting links to the NY Times as the references were quite often archived or its 10 articles per month limit would kick in, but now there’s a treasure trove of recipes online. This pizza is a based on a topping from its pizza-without-the-dough article, with an injection of flavour inspired by the Incredible Spice Men. Start with a paste made from six roasted garlic cloves squeezed from their skins, a splash of olive oil, and a heaped teaspoon of toasted caraway seeds and half a teaspoon of chilli flakes. Smear the paste over a partly cooked pizza base then scatter a little mozzarella over. Slice a zucchini into thin rounds and char each piece slightly on a grill pan set over high heat. Toss the slices in a little oil and arrange over the base, cover with a small log of goat cheese also cut into rounds and a generous sprinkle of pine nuts. Bake for a further fifteen minutes or until the cheese has browned, then sprinkle with a half cup of finely shredded mint before serving.
