Focaccia with Zucchini Feta Pomodoro Pizza Recipe



Fresh dough topped with herbs, feta cheese, zucchini, plum tomatoes, grating cheese, Italian flavored bread crumbs....drizzled with olive oil and mozzarella cheese


Crust is thick and crunchy, make Pizza Dough recipe first for focaccia crust

Fresh dough is so easy to make in no time you can have a fabulous Focaccia.

I always cook the crust first to make sure its not soggy.... then you can proceed with a simple focaccia bread as shown below without the toppings


After the crust is cooked the herbs go on the pizza with a very good imported olive oil
You will need spread evenly over the top of the crust:

1 fresh pizza dough recipe cooked and ready to prepare or store bought

Feta cheese

Plum tomatoes sliced

Dried oregano, parsley, basil, garlic powder, salt, black pepper about a teaspoon of each

Minced fresh garlic around 2 teaspoons

3 tablespoons olive oil or melted butter (more depending on the size of the pizza crust)

1 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary leaves

Sliced fresh zucchini


Grating cheese


Add your pre-cooked pizza to a pan and brush the crust with olive oil on the bottom of the pan and to the top first of the crust. Sprinkle herbs evening all over the pizza. Add tomato slices, zucchini, feta evenly over the top. Sprinkle with bread crumbs, add mozzarella, minced garlic and grating cheese, drizzle with more olive oil. Bake in hot oven till cheese melt at 430 degrees.

Stop with the Italian flavored bread crumbs already. Do you not know how awful they taste? Make your own.

OMG!!!! Amazing!!! I love that you made this and I wish I could have joined you!

That crust looks so perfect! Great photos. It is probably amazing eaten plain without toppings--I love your choice of using feta! A lot of flavor goes a long way. I would use a ton of fresh basil as well... I am dreaming about pizza now...

Pegasuslegend said...

@StephenC I make my own bread crumbs and the recipe is on the site. However when I am out I use them in a pinch.. your right they are better but working 75 hours a week and driving two hours a day... sometimes you have to do things a quick way...

This focaccia looks so good with the veggies and the feta cheese, and to top it off more cheese. No soggy crust here.
