Aggh Pizza, the one food that makes me weak at my knees lol. Who doesn’t love pizza? If you dislike pizza, you don’t know what your missing. One of my followers asked me to come up with a Healthy Pizza recipe. I gladly accepted the challenge. I chose to go with a zucchini as the crust. Hope you enjoy my recipe. This recipe is gluten free and Fit fam approved. Quick 30 second video below .

Ingredients

2 large zucchini

1 egg

1 cup of mozzarella cheese

2 TBSP of parmesan cheese

1 tsp of black pepper

1tsp of italian seasoning

1/2 cup marinara or pizza sauce

2 tsp of salt

Optional (my favorite topping)

Basil leaves

8 turkey pepperoni slices

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash and begin to shred the zucchini. Add 1 tsp of salt and mix. In a sieve ( strainer ) press down zucchini with a spatula in a mashing maneuver for about 2 minutes to drain the liquid from the zucchini.

Place the zucchini aside for 15 minutes. Next obtain a cloth, handkerchief, or 3 layers of paper towel. Place your shredded zucchini inside and squeeze. Do this as much as you can. You want your zucchini as dry as possible.

In a medium bowl combine the zucchini, egg, seasoning, parmesan, and 1/2 cup mozzarella. Mix well with a spatula. Place parchment paper upon a baking sheet. Pour the zucchini mix and spread evenly into a circle, as pictured below, unto the baking pan.

Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until edges are golden brown.

When done remove from oven. Pour marinara in the center of crust, spread evenly, sparing the edges (crust). Sprinkle mozzarella and continue to add toppings to the pizza.

Return back to the oven for 5-7 minutes until the cheese is melted.
