Low Carb Pizza - Zucchini "crust"

"I made this up last night, because we were hungry for pizza while doing the low carb thing. It's not as good as real pizza with bread crust, but we enjoyed it a lot. It satisfied our craving, and my husband asked me to make it again tonight. Hope you like it, too!"

    Great recipe however I salted the zucchini first and let it 'sweat' for 15 minutes and then wrung out as much of the water as I could. Eliminates the watery problem you have with zucchini.

    This was delicious. Wonderful recipe. I will make again and again. I did add garlic, oregano, basil and approx 1/2 c parmesan cheese the the crust. YUM!!!!

    It tasted great, just would be great if it were crispy. I think I'll make a lasagna version of this. I did was tdayberry did and added garlic powder and oregano. Any I won't be using my metal perforated pizza pan. It was really messy. use a stone or a cookie sheet. maybe it would've been crispy.

    This is a great recipe with changes. First, put a little salt on the shredded zucchini and let sit for about 15 minutes. Then take a clean cotton towel, put the zucchini in it and wring it out as hard as you can. Proceed with recipe except add some mozzarella cheese into the crust and heat the pizza stone, then oil the stone before spreading the crust ingredients on it. You can also make your own low-er carb pizza sauce without sugar. A really yummy supper!

    Love the taste but the crust did not make a crust, it's too watery to hold together. I think this would make a better casserole dish if it were tweaked. 5 star flavor & 1 star crust.

My husband and I moved to Tennessee from Pennsylvania in 2005. We absolutely love it here, especially being near the Smoky Mountains. My kids are grown and are out of the house. I am a nurse practitioner, work for Evercare, a division of United Healthcare, caring for elderly patients in nursing homes. My husband and I love the outdoors, and we especially enjoy hiking in the Smoky Mountains. I also enjoy doing Jazzercise as often as I can get there. We have 2 spoiled rotten kitties, Elizabeth and Harvey, and an equally spoiled rotten yellow lab, Hayley.
