We love using tried-and-true recipes to introduce new ingredients, for example, zucchini blossoms. They widely known of, but they are an awesome farmer’s market find. They have a very unique flavor that we thought they would work well atop on crust, paired with some cheese. Try something great with this sensational pizza recipe for dinner.
