Low carb easy zucchini pizza casserole with ground beef and pepperoni
- 4 cups shredded zucchini or 5 small zucchini
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
- 2 ounces cheese (I used mozzarella and cheddar)
- 1 teaspoon italian seasoning
- 1 lb ground beef
- 2 ounces pepperoni, chopped
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 cups spaghetti sauce
- 1 medium bell pepper, chopped
- 4 ounces cheddar cheese (or a mix of both) or 4 ounces mozzarella cheese (or a mix of both)
- Shred zucchini. Mix the zucchini with 2 eggs, parmesan cheese, 2 oz. of cheese and italian seasoning. Press the zucchini mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 9 x 13 inches glass baking dish. Bake the crust uncovered for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.
- While the crust bakes, brown the ground beef in a large pan. Add in the onion, pepperoni and spaghetti sauce and cook until onion is soft, about 5 - 7 minutes. Remove the crust from the oven. Pour the meat and sauce over the crust. Top with peppers, sprinkle with 4 oz. of cheese.
- Bake for 20 minutes at 400 or until the pizza is heated through and the cheese is melted and slightly browned. Allow the dish to stand for 2 - 3 minutes before slicing and serving.
