We love this zucchini puff pastry with lemon and goat cheese! Flakey crust, melty cheese, thin slices of zucchini and fresh lemon zest. This is so delicious, refreshing and satisfying!

  • 1 zucchini, very thinly sliced
  • 1 sheet thawed puff pastry
  • ½ cup freshly grated mozzarella cheese
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 4 ounces goat cheese
  • 1 lemon, zest freshly grated
  • fresh herbs for serving


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the zucchini on a cutting board and sprinkle it with salt. Let it for 5 minute, then pay it dry with a paper towel. This helps to remove excess moisture.
  • Place the sheet of puff pastry on the parchment paper. Cover with the mozzarella cheese, leaving the 1 inch border. Top with the zucchini and sprinkle with a little more salt, the pepper and the garlic powder. Crumble the goat cheese over the zucchini and sprinkle on crushed red pepper. Sprinkle on the lemon zest.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden and crisp. Sprinkle with fresh herbs before serving.
