Low Carb Zucchini Crust Pizza

This low carb zucchini crust pizza is a dish for those on a low carb diet that crave pizza. The crust consists of zucchini, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.

Serves: 1 pizza

Ingredients

  • 2-3 medium zucchini (about 1½ cup shredded)
  • ⅓ cup all purpose flour (or whole wheat or bread crumbs)
  • ½ cup low-fat shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • Pizza sauce
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • favorite toppings

Cooking Process

  1. Pre-heat oven to 500F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray paper with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. Place shredded zucchini on a plate lined with a few layers of paper towel. Sprinkle with one tablespoon of salt. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  3. Squeeze the excess moisture out of the zucchini by wrapping it up in the paper towels or clean cheese cloth and squeezing out all the excess water.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine the shredded zucchini, flour, egg, cheese and Italian spices. Combine mixture with a spoon until fully incorporated then transfer mixture on to greased parchment paper.
  5. Press the dough into the desired shape and thickness (we like ¼» thickness) on the greased parchment paper.
  6. Bake for about 10 minutes until the crust looks set and the bottom is starting to brown.
  7. Carefully remove the pizza crust from the oven and top with sauce, cheese, and toppings if desired. Return to oven and bake for another 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
