Zucchini Crust Pizza

The following is a guest post from Sara. If you are looking for a gluten-free pizza option try this zucchini crust pizza. Or if you can convince your kids to eat green pizza this is a great way to get them to eat more veggies!

I don’t eat enough veggies.  Period.  But I LOVE pizza!  I’ve seen all these cauliflower pizzas floating around, but I am not a fan of that stuff.  So, when I heard someone mention zucchini crust pizza, I thought I would be up for trying it.

Let me also say, I hate cooking.  So, if I can do this, anyone can!  Plus, I have made pizza crust out of pre-packaged stuff, and this didn’t really take any more time than those.

Ingredients

  • 4 Zucchini
  • Cheese cloth/towel

  • 1 cup Italian Blend Cheese - or Mozzarella and Parmesan
  • Garlic

  • Pizza Toppings

Instructions

  1. Clean the zucchini. Then grate or finely chop in food processor.
  2. Once all the zucchini is nice and shredded, you want to wrap it up in your cheese cloth or towel. Ring out as much water as you can.
  3. When you think you are done, try again.
  4. Once you have drained it all, transfer to a bowl and microwave for 2 minutes.
  5. Add two eggs, garlic, and 1/4 a cup of cheese.
  6. Mix well. (You could add other spices or seasonings if you would like.)
  7. Lightly oil a baking sheet or use a pizza stone.
  8. Set the zucchini mixture on and using your hands, flatten.
  9. Be sure not to get too thin.
  10. Bake in oven for about 10 minutes (or until just starting starting to lightly brown) at 450 degrees. Remove from oven and layer sauce, toppings, and cheese.
  11. Place back in oven for about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Sara’s notes: She did not have a cheese cloth so she used paper towels. While paper towels do work, a cheese cloth is a better option if you have it.
