Ingredients

Zucchini Crust Pizza

  • 2 cups packed shredded zucchini (about 2-4 zucchini, depending on size) + 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ¼ tsp dried basil
  • ¼ tsp red chili flakes
  • ½ salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper

Pizza Toppings

  • Pizza Marinara - either homemade or store-bought
  • Veggies: Sweet Peppers and Mushrooms.
  • Protein: Pepperoni or homemade sausage.
  • Cheese: Regular fresh Mozzarella works the best here.
  • Additional Toppings: fresh basil and grated parmesan cheese.

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450°F and lay out a large piece of cheesecloth or a thin clean kitchen towel. Grate the zucchini over the cheesecloth/towel by using a box grater. Grab both sides of the towel and carefully squeeze out the excess liquid over the sink. Put the zucchini in a large bowl, season it with 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and let it sit for 10 minutes. This will help with absorbing any additional moisture. Pat dry with a new clean, dry towel.
  • To a medium bowl, add 2 cups of packed shredded zucchini, 2 eggs, 1 cup almond flour, and the seasoning. Mix everything until you get a dough-like texture.
  • Place parchment paper on a pizza peel, and then add the zucchini pizza dough on top. By using your hands, form a 12-inch diameter round pizza. Carefully transfer the pizza crust to the oven to bake for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the pizza from the oven and add your toppings: marinara, veggies, protein, and cheese. Return pizza back to the oven to bake for 10 additional minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
  • Add fresh basil leaves and grated parmesan cheese on top before serving!
