Here at Best Friends For Frosting, we love to get creative in the kitchen. It’s always fun to go out to a restaurant and sit down for a nice dinner, but sometimes it’s more fun to do the cooking yourself! One of our favorite types of food to make is Italian! The food is so delicious and rich and flavorful- we always have to get seconds! An all-time favorite Italian food is pizza. Who doesn’t love it? It’s such a simple dish to prepare and you can never go wrong with it!
We are so thrilled to share this recipe for Tuscan Grilled Zucchini and Ricotta Pizza with you. This would make the perfect family night activity to make together and is easy to modify to make it just the way you like it! This has all the great elements: grilled zucchini (finally, healthy pizza!), lots of cheese (our favorite part), and delicious Bertolli Alfredo Sauce to give it that delicious fresh and authentic Italian taste! Get the grill and oven ready, it’s pizza time!!
