Zucchini Crust Pizza

"Our family loves this pizza and it is very light & easy to make. My husband says it reminds him of a quiche. I just like that my kids are eating at least 2 servings of veggies per slice! Uses up some of those extra zucchini cluttering the counter in late summer. This recipe came from Taste of Home's Light & Tasty collector's issue with my own changes added. This is not a large pizza so I often double the first four ingredients and the cheese, add other pizza toppings and make it a large. Also, I like to use my egg poacher or mini muffins and make mini appetizers (see picture). Now where did I put that zucchini bread recipe....."

Ready In:
6 slices




  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • In a bowl, combine zucchini and egg substitute; mix well. Add flour and salt; stir well, scraping sides to incorporate all dry ingredients.
  • Pour dough mix onto a solid bottom large 18 in" or larger pizza pan with a lip coated with nonstick cooking spray. Spread it evenly over pan with a spoon.
  • Bake at 450 degrees for 8 minutes. Take pizza dough out of oven and reduce heat to 350 degrees.
  • Sprinkle with mozzarella, tomatoes, onion, green pepper, oregano, basil and Parmesan cheese. (I love adding sliced broiled eggplant and sliced mushrooms and black olives too). Arranging artfully will take more time than just sprinkling on.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes OR until onion is tender and cheese is melted.
  • I've made this in 2 different ovens and in one oven I had to take the crust out 2 minutes sooner in my first oven to avoid it being overdone. The crust will cook more during the last cycle of baking so keep that in mind. If you get any puffy pockets forming during the first round of baking, just lance them with the tip of a sharp knife.
  • Doubling this recipe gives about 10 big slices.

  1. So good, I was pleasantly surprised, the flavors all seemed to go together so well. I made as directed and added black olives and mushrooms. Will be doing this again, specially with our abundance of zucchini, thinking next time I'm going to try the muffin tin idea to make them easy to handle
  2. I liked this a lot, but i learned some lessons for next time. First the crust is very quiche like. It never got crispy for me except around the edges. Next time I'll attempt to spread it thinner. I also suggest draining your zucchini some before adding the other ingredients. All in all i really liked this! I added a bit more garlic and topped it with fresh tomatoes, green peppers and broccoli. I had to cook it a bit longer then suggested (about 40 mins)


I've lived in several states, and they have all added a bit of "flavor" to my culinary preferences. I love comfort food and as I've aged, I seek ways to make old favorites more healthy. For me, healthy is defined by what we have learned about gut health over the years. I no longer cook the way I used to, but I still crave those old favorites. It's quite likely that something I posted here more than a decade ago is no longer made in my kitchen, or has been greatly altered to fit our new model. I appreciate it when people take the time to post great recipes because the internet is so much quicker and convenient to use than my stash of cookbooks, cherished as they are. I also appreciate reading reviews that people post, providing they are actually helpful. I just don't understand rudeness, competitiveness and the like and wish people didn't feel the need to inject negative attitudes into all the positive. I feel a site like this one can help many people and it's a great way to collaborate and share treasures in our kitchens. I'm glad to have access and to be a part of the community.
