This zucchini corn feta pizza is the perfect way to say goodbye to summer. Packed full of fresh vegetable flavor, cheesy feta and fresh herbs all on a whole wheat crust.

On Monday we hit a record high for New York – 95 degrees. It’s pretty much stayed in the 90’s this whole week and I’m totally over it. I’m dying for some fall weather so I can burn my fall cinnamon smelling candles, open my windows and maybe rock out a few pairs of my awesome new printed leggings.

However, as much as I want fall I don’t want to say goodbye to summer produce. I live for summer corn, zucchini, peaches and every other fresh delicious fruit and vegetable. As soon as fall comes I get giddy for apples but then realize that means it will be followed up by pumpkins and then snow. Ugh. Snow. The only thing that gets me through winter is the 4000 eggnog lattes I order from Starbucks. Then I get depressed I drank that many calories, then I turn another year older in February, then March comes and I think to myself “we’ve finally hit March! That means winter is almost over!” then a big snow storm hits (because mother nature hates me) and I get depressed again and then FINALLY April comes and all I can think about is warm weather and summer.

Then I repeat this whole vicious cycle because I’m a crazy person.

Since you now know how my crazy mind works I’m going to just assume that most of you feel the same way…right?

I mean wouldn’t summer produce with cool fall air and pumpkin spice lattes be ahhhhhmazing? You know you want to say yes.

This pizza is pretty much my last “hoorah!” to summer. It’s a delicious whole wheat crust spread with a ricotta herb mixture and then topped with fresh summer corn, zucchini, broccoli raab, red onion, feta cheese, crushed red pepper and a sprinkling of mozzarella. It’s so perfect that I ate almost the whole thing for lunch.

I probably could have finished it if I wanted too but I didn’t feel the need to power through just for a random lunch. Plus there is that whole “overeating is bad for you” thing.

I also snapped this pretty pictures of my sunflowers while I was shooting this pizza. It really has no point in this post except for the fact that I love it and wanted to share.

Aren’t sunflowers just the best?

    I love fresh veggies on a pizza especially corn. This is a great way to use those veggies from the garden. Looks delish!

    I love everything about this pizza and I am so holding onto Summer, too! I love Fall but Summer being over just means we are getting closer to winter – yuck! BUT this pizza screams Summer and I love everything about it!

    Wow, that is the most depressing (and accurate) description of winter. At least we have the holidays to add some brightness to the season!

    I am definitely not ready for all of the summer produce to leave, but could go for some cooler weather! I just recently had corn on a pizza, and it was amazing. Can’t wait to try this!

    95! That’s a little too warm for September. I’m like you and I’m torn between not wanting everything I love about summer to end and also wanting to bust out the cinnamon and pumpkin candles and my favorite legging and sweatshirt. This pizza looks so awesome and I just happen to have another zucchini from my garden that needs to be used!

    I love fresh corn on pizza. Probably something as a kid I’d find weird, but as an adult I love thinking of a pizza as a blank canvas for whatever’s in season.

    I love this because Michigan (as you know) is still very much immersed in summer product like corn and zucchini! yes please!

    I LOVE this! So pretty, and likely so delicious! And as for the sunflowers, I actually drove past a huge field filled with them last weekend. So pretty! I don’t blame you for posting the picture! :o)

    Losing summer corn is pretty much going to make me CRY this year! Tragic. This 95 degree weather can go, though. I know today was technically cooler but the HUMIDITY. No. Just no.

    This pizza COULD make up for the crazy weather this week…and that says a lot.

    Beautiful pics and a fabulous flavor combo especially with the hearty wholewheat crust. You’ve inspired me, I think I will make two and freeze one…or maybe frozen mini

    I’m visiting NYC next week and I’m hoping the temperature cools down by there. I’m hoping to escape the 100s here in LA!! I totally feel you on the summer produce. I’ll be sad when I can no longer buy fresh corn. In the meantime, more summer pizza! 🙂

    You know, My husband is a pizza crazed person. Like he could eat it all the time and I’m just kinda like yeah it’s ok…normally… But seeing this pizza just turned me into the biggest pizza lover ever! Pinning it now because I’m either making this Sunday or Monday night! I’m all about summer produce too but I love winter and fall! Can I just have fall with Halloween and summer produce? haha

    Sunflowers are the best. I don’t understand why anyone would want roses when they could have sunflowers. They’re the cheeriest of all flowers! You look at them and instantly get happy. The pizza would make me happy, too. 😀
