Recipe: Low Carb Zucchini Crust Pizza

Low Carb Zucchini Crust Pizza

This zucchini crust pizza is like no other you’ve had before. The crust is thin, crispy and delicious and can hold up a few toppings too. It’s loaded with cheese and Italian spices so it’s got a tasty kick to it that you won’t get from regular pizza dough.

It all begins with shredded zucchini that is then place on a few layers or paper towel and sprinkled with salt. This helps draw all the moisture out of the zucchini for a crispy crust. Next, shredded cheese, an egg, flour, and spices are added to make the dough.

Low Carb Zucchini Crust Pizza

THE RECIPE:

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 medium zucchini about 1 1/2 cup shredded
  • 1/3 cup AP Flour or almond flour or breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup low-fat shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese optional
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • Pizza sauce
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Favorite toppings


Instructions:

  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. 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.
  3. 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. Press the dough into the desired shape and thickness (we like 1/4'' thickness) on the greased parchment paper.
  4. Bake for about 10 minutes until the crust looks set and the bottom is starting to brown. 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.
