Zucchini Crust Pizza with Prosciutto, Bacon, Mushrooms, and Onions

Today, we made a zucchini crust pizza. Because we are stuck in an ice storm, we were looking for a low-cal alternative to one of our favorite comfort foods!

Crust:

  • 3 zucchinis (shredded)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cups of flour
  • 3/4 cups of cheddar cheese
  • 3 tsp of basil
  • 1 tsp of oregano
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 2 tsp of minced garlic

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 550*F with a pizza stone already in the oven.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the zucchini with 1 teaspoon of salt and let sit for 15 minutes. Squeeze the excess moisture out of the zucchini in a paper towel — you might need a couple of them.
  3. Once all the moisture is gone, add the zucchini back to the large bowl and add the flour, eggs, cheese, basil, oregano, salt, and garlic. 
  4. Using your hands, mix all of the ingredients together to form a “doughy” mixture.
  5. Place the zucchini mixture onto a piece of parchment paper. Spread the mixture out using your fingers until it is about 1/2″ thick.
  6. Once shaped, place the crust and the parchment paper on the pizza stone. (Don’t worry, the parchment paper will brown during cooking). Cook the pizza crust for 8 minutes.
  7. Once the crust starts to brown, take it out of the oven for toppings. Add whatever toppings you want! We added bacon, prosciutto, mushrooms, and onions.
  8. Place the pizza back into the oven and cook from an additional 4-5 minutes.
  9. Take out, cool, slice, and enjoy!
