Do you have a family of pizza lovers? When we first tried this recipe (culled from some long ago book), our children were at the stage where if it looked strange, they would’nt touch it with a 10′ pole…but for some reason, Zucchini Pizza grabbed hold and it was requested often. We use a small roll of hot sausage, well browned and drained-patted dry. Sorry I don’t have a photo!
* ****we used 2 pizza crusts when the kids were home and spread the filling a little thinner. Otherwise, you get more of a quiche! ****
1 Cup chopped onion
2 TBSP Butter
2 TBP snipped fresh parsley
½ TSP pepper
¼ TSP garlic powder
¼ TSP crushed, dried basil
¼ TSP crushed, dried oregano
1 pkg pizza crust mix
non-stick spray coating
2 beaten eggs
8 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
8 oz cooked drained sausage OR 4 oz sliced pepperoni
Brown sausage in skillet, drain well pressing out grease with paper towels, set aside. In a large skillet, add butter, zucchini and onion, saute until onion is tender. Add all spices and the parsley, cook uncovered over low heat, stirring often until most liquid is gone. Drain remainder of liquids. You want this mixture as dry as possible. Remove from heat.
Prepare pizza crust according to package directions. Spray a 12-14″ pizza pan with non-stick spray. Press dough onto pan from the center out to the edges. You want to have the dough going up the sides of your pan. Bake the crust at 375° for 10 minutes.
Combine beaten eggs, mozzarella and sausage (or pepperoni). Stir in zucchini mixture. Spread atop partially baked crust. Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes until the cheese is golden brown and zucchini mixture is piping hot.
