Next to cauliflower, the vegetable I’ve enjoyed experimenting with most is zucchini. I already previously made a successful cauliflower pizza crust which my husband loves, so I thought, why not zucchini? With summer just around the corner, I love how this crust manages to stay a bright green. I can imagine added slices of tomatoes from my garden for a colorful garden pizza.
The crust is loaded with zucchini, but it doesn’t really taste of it. It tastes very similar to the cauliflower crust pizza I previously shared. Slightly crispy, chewy and more like a flatbread crust rather than a crust made of vegetables. I’ll definitely be making this one again!
- 2 cups packed freshly shredded raw zucchini
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup freshly shredded Parmesan cheese
- 1/8 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 cup all purpose flour
Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add zucchini to a large bowl and let sit 10-15 minutes. Drain excess water from zucchini bowl. Using a tea towel or several sturdy paper towels, add in 1/2 cup of zucchini into towel and wring dry. Repeat with remaining zucchini. When you are finished, you should have about 1 cup of zucchini remaining.
Add zucchini, egg, cheese, pepper and flour to a large mixing bowl. Mix until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
Dump zucchini mixture onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Using a spatula, thin and spread out the batter so that it forms a round crust approximately 9 inches in diameter and 1/8 inch thick.
Bake in oven about 15-20 minutes or until edges are golden brown and both sides are cooked. Flip over crust and bake an additional 10 minutes until top is crispy. Flip pizza crust back over.
Lower oven temperature to 400°F. Add whatever pizza ingredients you desire to your crust. I did a layer of marinara sauce, followed by fresh slices of mozzarella, sliced bell peppers and fresh basil leaves. Bake for about 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
