In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment. Stir together water and honey, then sprinkle over active dry yeast. Let bloom until foamy, about 10 minutes, then stir in ¼ cup olive oil.
Add flour, salt, basil, mint and thyme to the bowl and mix on medium speed until a smooth dough forms. Using greased hands, transfer to a greased bowl. Cover and let proof in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 450°F and place a baking steel or pizza stone on the middle rack. Transfer proofed dough to a greased sheet pan and using your hands, spread to fit the pan, then make dimples in the dough with your fingers. Arrange zucchini and summer squash over the dough, alternating between the two and leaving a 1-inch border around the dough. Cover again and let proof again until puffed, 45-60 minutes.
Drizzle the remaining ¼ cup olive oil over the sliced squash and dough, then garnish with flaked sea salt and aleppo pepper. Place directly onto the baking steel or stone and bake until golden and and an internal temperature of 195°F is reached, 30-35 minutes. Let cool completely, then slice into squares and serve.
Pulse pine nuts in a food processor until separated into small pieces. Scrape down sides, then add garlic and olive oil. Pulse until ingredients are finely chopped in chunks, but not a paste texture—stop and scrape sides with spatula when needed
Add the herbs, lemon juice, zest, salt, and pepper and pulse until incorporated—stopping every 15 seconds or so to scrape the sides.
Finally, add in the large cheese chunks and pulse until ingredients are finely chopped (but not pasty). Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if needed. Enjoy on toast, roasted vegetables, pasta or marinade for fish!
Let's check #Zucchini off as our 31st veg! Though there are many veg we love that we haven't mentioned for #vegout2021, we hope you have had fun with us, discovered new veg & expanded your menus to a half plate of veggies with every meal. It's the fastest path to health!
We saved green beans for day 30 of #vegout2021 With dozens of cultivars, from broad, meaty Roma to thin, delicate French filet beans, pods can be round or flat, and come in multiple colors: green, purple, yellow, or mottled, so they don't have to be a predictable choice.
