For Crust:
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup whole grain cornmeal
2 tbsp granulated white sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup cold salted butter, cut in pieces
1/3 cup + 1-2 tbsp buttermilk

1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup shredded Fontina cheese

In large skillet, sauté leeks in olive oil until softened, set aside.

Preheat oven to 350°F.
In medium bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar and salt and whisk together.

Add butter and use a pastry cutter to cut it into the dry mixture until it is crumbly.

Add 1/3 cup buttermilk and stir to combine.

Kneed with hands, adding 1 to 2 more tablespoons of buttermilk as needed to create a ball of dough.

Place ball of dough on large parchment lined baking sheet and roll it out to a 12-14 in circle.

Sprinkle on leeks leaving a 1 1/2 in border around the edge.

Add cheese, tomatoes and zucchini.

Gently fold edges towards middle slightly over filling.
