Once cooked, put the courgettes in a bowl to warm up and start to prepare the 7 cup savory cake.
In a large bowl, add the eggs and a cup of yogurt. Wash and dry the empty cup of yogurt and use it to measure all the other ingredients. Add a cup of seed oil, three cups of 00 flour, a cup of Parmesan, one of milk and finally the instant yeast.
Use a whisk to mix all the ingredients to have a perfectly homogeneous and quite thick mixture. Add the ham cubes, the cheese cubes and the cold zucchini cubes. Mix with a spatula gently not to break the zucchini.
