ZUCCHINI CRUST PIZZA

I came across a zucchini crust pizza recipe that I wanted to try, and due to not having all ingredients on hand, I improvised, and came up with my own recipe! And not to mention, I ended up very pleased with the results that I always find myself making it, and haven’t had a normal flour dough pizza in a while!


Ingredients:

3 Cups of shredded zucchini

2/3 Cups or 150 grams of Whole-wheat flour

2 Tablespoons of Coconut flour

1 Tablespoon of Italian seasoning

1 Tablespoon of Oregano

1 Tablespoon of Basil

1/2 Teaspoon of Salt

2 Large beaten eggs

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F° or 250 C° degrees

  2. Shred zucchini with a grater

  3. Place the shredded zucchini into a dishcloth and squeeze out all of its water

  4. Get a bowl and put all of the ingredients EXCEPT for the eggs

  5. Mix well until mixture is well combined and there are no clumps

  6. Add beaten eggs, this will create a sticky dough

  7. Grab a baking pan with a baking sheet on it and brush up some olive oil

  8. Transfer the dough on the baking sheet

  9. Spread the dough with your hands and make sure there are no holes

  10. Bake it for 15 minutes, and then get it out of the oven to flip it, (I have a spare baking pan of the same size that I just place on top of it. I make sure that the new bottom side that has to cook has another baking sheet with olive oil, and don’t forget, while doing this, wear oven mitts as one of the pans will be warm from the oven)

  11. Bake the other side for another 15 minutes

  12. Get it out of the oven, top it with tomato pizza sauce and mozzarella and then select other desired toppings. ** Once your pizza has its toppings, pop it back into the oven for 15 minutes

Bonus: Right after step 12, I like to change the settings of my oven from bake to broil for 4 minutes max, keeping an eye on it, so I can make sure the pizza top melts to perfection just how I like it 😋

**Please keep in mind, not all toppings can be placed in the oven for an extended period of time, some examples are fresh plants such as cilantro, arugula, basil, and meats like prosciutto, just to name a few. Also, some toppings need to be cooked separately before placing them on the pizza, examples are spinach, zucchini, eggplant, chicken, and bacon.
