Have you made a Skinny Zucchini Pizza Crust before? I had never heard about a pizza crust made from zucchini. My cute friend, Rochelle shared this recipe with me. Oh man, is it ever good! This year I did not have excess zucchini in my garden as I have had the last 45 years. I just barely picked one the other day. I have had maybe 8 total in my small garden this year. I still do not know what happened.

I have tomatoes galore, cucumbers in abundance. I have lots and lots of basil. Do you love the smell of basil as much as I do?

Zucchini Pizza Crust:

Here is what the raw mixture looks like:

Here’s the deal. I love just about anything with cheese. Well, this is very similar to a frittata, but much thinner because this only has one egg. Yes, the cheese is low-fat mozzarella cheese and is still stringy like a regular pizza would be. I will be making this recipe for a very long time because of all the options I can use for this crust. Just add freshly sliced tomatoes, olives, a meat of choice. You can add sauce, but I did not in this one today. You could add mushrooms, etc. My husband even liked it and he is a meat lover’s pizza kind of guy.

The recipe said to use a pizza stone, but I did not want to drag mine out and it worked just fine with a plain round pan. Be sure and cut the parchment paper to fit the pan. I had mine extended over the pan…just FYI, I could have had a fire. Just saying…things happen. I don’t use parchment paper that much, but I should have known better. I took a picture of this and sent to one of my daughters who enjoys cooking a lot of meals with tons of veggies. She will love this recipe.

What would you add to your zucchini pizza? I would love to hear from you. Enjoy!

    Do you think the crust could be prebaked then froze for later dining? How would it reheat? I have a lot of zucchini coming on in garden.

      Hi Lisa, I just freeze grated/shredded zucchini in bags and thaw as needed. Then the zucchini is ready for any recipe. Linda
