1/1 Photo of Zucchini Pizza Dough
From my e-cookbook collection, this looks yummy and interesting. The only ingredient in here that I changed was to use 3 egg whites instead of 3 whole eggs as originally called for-- since you don't need yolks to bind and all. Can use any kind of flour but I think whole wheat or bread flour would add great substance and flavor. (1/3 cup AP flour + 1 teaspoon vital wheat gluten = 1/3 cup bread flour) But the only quirk with this recipe is that unlike flour doughs, you can't bake with the sauce, cheese, and toppings on or else it'll fall apart-- you have to bake this dough first.
