Zucchini Crust Pepperoni Pizza
A delicious pizza crust made of zucchini and topped with pizza sauce, pepperoni, and cheese. Your kids won't even guess there is a vegetable in the crust.
Servings: 6 slices
- 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
- 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
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.
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.
