Zucchini Focaccia Ingredients

  • Zucchini – use any fresh zucchini (green or yellow)
  • Flour – all-purpose flour
  • Olive oil – extra virgin olive oil
  • Seasoning – salt, pepper, garlic powder
  • Ham – you can also use sliced turkey breast
  • Cheese – for a nice cheese pull, use Swiss cheese or Gruyere

How to Make Zucchini Focaccia

Prepare the zucchini. Grate the zucchini into a cheesecloth set over a large mixing bowl. Use the cheesecloth to squeeze out most of the excess liquid. Transfer the zucchini to another clean, dry bowl.

Now make the dough. To the zucchini, add the flour, water, olive oil, salt, pepper, and mix very well. Divide the dough in two.

To cook the dough, place one half in a pan set over medium heat. Add ham and cheese and top with the other dough half.

Cook until the bottom starts to brown, then use a large plate to flip the dough over. Continue to cook until the dough is cooked through and both sides are golden brown.

Tips

You can use other ingredients for the filling too. Use bacon, smoked chicken, or turkey breast instead of ham.

Sliced olives, sundried tomato, chilies, or red pepper can all be used to add flavor to the filling.

How to Store Zucchini Focaccia

Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days. Keep it in an airtight container.
