Ingredients

Crust

  • 4 cups of zucchini grated
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour divided
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tbsp olive oil divided

Topping

  • 1/2 cup jarred pizza sauce
  • 20 slices pepperoni
  • 2/3 cup mixed mozzarella and cheddar cheeses
  • 2 tbsp shredded parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley

Instructions

Crust

  • In a microwave safe bowl, heat grated zucchini for 5 minutes. Transfer to a colander and let drain. Once zucchini is cool enough to touch, use paper towels to squeeze out moisture.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • In a medium sized bowl, mix together zucchini, 1 1/4 cups flour, egg, Italian seasoning, kosher salt, pepper, and 2 tbsp olive oil.
  • Dough will be very sticky. Make it into a flat circle, about 5" in diameter, as best as you can. Cover outside of dough with remaining 1/4 cup flour.
  • Spread dough evenly out on a pizza stone or parchment paper lined baking sheet. Brush remaining tbsp of olive oil over top of crust.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until top is golden brown.

Topping

  • Cover crust with pizza sauce, pepperoni, cheeses, parsley, and other desired toppings. Return to oven and bake for 7-8 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly.
