Zucchini is always a wonderful value-add to pizzas because it has a very unique texture that is crisp, juicy and slightly buttery as well! It tends to lubricate every bite-ful making it more enjoyable and easier to munch on. This particular pizza features a stunning assortment of vegetables like zucchini, baby corn and capsicum combined with a luscious cheese sauce. Chunks of black olives together with a dash of herbs and spices makes the Cheesy Zucchini and Baby Corn Pizza extra special, all set to be savoured by a special someone!
