Watching female gymnasts with fantastically sculpted bodies and male swimmers with obscenely beautiful abs has made me further question my diet of alcohol and practically anything else that’s edible. Okay, not really…but sort of. Thoreau said: Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them. So this zucchini pizza is my attempt at eating something that will help me to avoid going to my grave with the “song” of having abs that are actually visible to people and not just visible to my internal organs.

Like you, my evenings have been spent curled up in front of the TV cocktail in one hand and remote in the other watching the Olympics and ogling the amazing bodies of those Olympians. Having been a competitive swimmer for years, I am especially interested in the swimmers. Of course during the men’s events I try to block out the fact that Craig is sitting at the other end of  the couch with me. You have, no doubt, realized that men’s abs are a bit of an obsession for me (see site header for confirmation of this statement). I must have been fairly good about the drooling and excitement because he only asked me twice if I would like him to leave the room so that I could be alone with the life sized abs projected on our wall. I’m either getting old, or am completely jaded since we live at the beach, because I only took him up on his offer once.

Zucchini Pizza

As is usually the case, in an Olympic year, people start to take up more physical activities and improve their diets. I don’t know that I’m really doing that so much as I am trying to figure out what to do with zucchini at this time of the year. I only have one zucchini plant in my garden, and I’ve got it coming out of my ears. So like my “what to do with all this basil” post, I thought I might give you an idea for what to do with zucchini that is probably crowding you out of the kitchen right about now.

Easy zucchini recipes seem to be most appropriate for this time of year since no one really wants to be in the kitchen when the days are sunny and warm. This zucchini pizza uses up a good quantity of the squash while keeping the cooking to a minimum.

What can I do with zucchini

I got the idea for a zucchini pizza from this zucchini frittata that I’ve been making quite a lot since I first made it last year. It’s something that’s light and delicious and you don’t feel weighed down after you eat it. It’s also a showcase for the summer squash. Lots of recipes hide the zucchini, since it’s flavor is so light and easy to disguise, in things like zucchini chocolate cake or in a sweet bread. I do this too, although it’s more for the way zucchini keeps things moist (eww, I hate that word) as opposed to attempting to make something healthier by using the cake/bread as a trojan horse delivery system for getting more vegetables into our diets.

What are some of your favorite easy zucchini recipes or ways that you are using up all that zucchini this time of year?

I was wondering what to prepare for dinner and thanks to you I have a very healthy idea. Plus, 3 zucchinis have been lying in my fridge since last week – perfect :)
