It just doesn’t get any better than this, when smash blossoms are at the farmer’s markets, the lovely blogger Telma Garcia from At the Fire Hydrant makes her memorable squash blossom pizza with bunches of fresh herbs and mozzarella cheese. Pick some of these beautiful blossoms up at the market the next time you see them and make this gentle, elegant flatbread as soon as you can.
