Get Your Greens Here!

It’s definitely time to do a Spring post so here goes….

A delicious way to enjoy your greens (and a cheeky way to get the kids to enjoy them too). It’s a courgette, parsley and spinach pizza, with a crème fraiche base.

The Ingredients
pizza dough
200g/ 7oz crème fraiche
2 egg yolks
150g/ 5.2oz grated gruyère
2 spring onions
1 courgette
100g/ 3.5oz spinach
1 bunch of parsley
salt & pepper

Preheat the oven at 200°C/ 392°F. For the base mix the egg yolks, the crème fraiche, 100g/ 3.5oz grated gruyère and 3/4 of the parsley together and season with salt and pepper.
Roll out your pizza dough and spread the base over it (leave an edge of about 1cm free). Cover with fine slices of courgette and spring onion. Cover with the spinach and sprinkle with the rest of the gruyère. Bake for about 10 minutes.


…maybe it should have a cool name for the kids… Power Pizza, Galactic Green Pizza or something like that.


  1. Looks good Mrs. Twinkle, and really nice pictures. If you find any more courgette recipes by the end of summer, post them then to help us use up the harvest!

    P.S. – For your American readers, a courgette is a zucchini.

  2. I really like this idea. For my own blog I actually did something similar but instead of putting the veggies on top of the pizza I used a magic bullet to blend mushrooms and peppers into the sauce (for those picky eaters).

  3. Great combination, especially as it includes the courgette, which gave me a whole new appreciation for squash. After avoiding it for my first twenty years, perhaps it had earned a second chance. Thank goodness it did! Now it’s a crucial part of the salads I bring into work every day.

    Oh, and rejoice – it’s May!
