Delicious zucchini pizza crust

    This zucchini pizza crust is a a good alternative to the low carb pizza crust I posted some months ago. I think it is a good way to eat vegetables while eating pizza and…eating pizza while eating vegetables ;-).

    It is a great idea for dinner, a comfort food with little flour on the recipe, that will satisfy you and your family without being a heavy dish, but with each slice having less than 200 calories.

    I love pizza and I don’t think about changing its dough, but I admit I love these vegetables alternatives. We can’t eat that much of pasta and flour, and this zucchini pizza crust gives you satifaction, a lot of taste while being lighter than a traditional pizza.

    You can vary the ingredients of the topping to your taste. I followed the recipe I found on Taste of Home but didn’t add peppers just because I hadn’t them at home. It’s a recipe you can probably prepare with what you already have in the fridge. I used cherry tomatoes (the ones I had at home!), onions, a lot of oregano and some basil leaves. Maybe it’s just because I love onions, but the aroma this zucchini pizza crust spread while cooking was something difficult to resist and…I ate a piece before dinner, I couldn’t help!

    This pizza reminds me the Brazilian ones, that usually have abundant toppings (a lot of basil leaves, a lot of onions…).

        It is perfect when done with your own veggies! I will try with cornmeal too. Thanks!
