Zucchini Pizza!!!

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! ****

Zucchini Pizza  
 
4 cups shredded zucchini

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. 

Serves 4.

    • try it! It’s really yummy. Kinda reminds me of a quiche..you might want to use 2 pizza crusts and spread the goodies thinner.

    • We love it…Ernie reminded me that this really does make enough for 2 – 12″ pizzas if you like your stuff piled thinner. We always made 2 when the kids were home since we used the sausage, it just makes up alot!

  1. Must copy this, then make, wonder if yellow squash would work? Yellow are coming out of my ears. I really look funny. Good to be at the quilt show with you Susan, I bought a purse, a pair of earrings, and one pattern. No fabric. Yea!
