Homemade Pizza Dough
We always opt for making pizza dough at home. It’s just better. But you do you. If you love the convenience of a store bought pre-made option, go for it! Or if you have a favorite dough recipe you love, use that instead.
We included our 1-hr pizza dough recipe below, which makes about 4-5 personal pizzas. This is a perfect option for pizza night when everyone wants to add their own toppings. You can always make larger pizzas by splitting the dough into fewer pieces. Again, you do you, but we love having smaller pizzas so that we can have variety.
Where do I find squash blossoms?
Honestly, this is probably the biggest challenge for this recipe. Here in Houston, we almost never see squash blossoms in the grocery store. But we do see them at our local farmers markets, so check yours and ask the vendors selling zucchini and other squash varieties if they ever sell squash blossoms.
If you enjoy gardening, we also recommend that you grow zucchini or other summer squash so that you can have blossoms readily available. But that’s a lot of work for one recipe, so check out other ways to use squash blossoms below.
What else can I make with Squash Blossoms?
There are a ton of ways to use squash blossoms in addition to this recipe. You can eat the blossoms from both winter and summer squash so you have a lot of options throughout the year. Squash blossoms don’t have much of a flavor to them, so you will want to enjoy them with some additional flavorful components. They can be eaten raw as well, but here are a few ways we enjoy them:
You can sauté them in butter and serve them as a side dish, you can tempura batter and deep fry them, add to pasta dishes, etc. We are also really loving this Air Fryer Stuffed Squash Blossoms recipe, so check that out!
