Ingredients

  • Polenta Crust:
  • 1 cup polenta
  • 3 cups water
  • dash of salt
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • Optional toppings:
  • 1 to mato
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • handful of black olives
  • 1 medium zucchini *
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 4 ounces goat cheese
  • 1/3 cup marinara sauce

Instructions

  • Preheat oven 350 degrees and lightly spray cast iron skillet with non stick cooking spray.
  • Meanwhile for the polenta crust bring 3 cups of water to boil in saucepan on stove top with 1/2 tsp. salt.
  • When it starts to boil slowly add the polenta and reduce heat to low. Continue to cook stirring frequently about 25-30 minutes until it becomes really thick.
  • Remove from heat and add olive oil and parmesan cheese.
  • Spoon polenta into skillet and press down into pan making an even crust.
  • Bake in preheated oven 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and top with optional ingredients.
  • Return to oven and bake another 20 minutes.

Notes

* I cut the zucchini into matchstick shapes and place in colander with a little salt while the crust was baking to remove moisture.
While crust is baking can cut up other ingredients for topping pizza with.
I made this one a thin crust pizza since that's what I prefer but if you want more of a thick pan crust just double the polenta recipe above.
