Zucchini Squash Pizza Recipe

Friday, August 7, 2015

I was amazed how delicious this was. It reminds me of eggplant Parmesan but better. I have now tried this with both green and yellow squash and they both come out great! If you are looking for a healthy alternative this is it! Of course you can add olives, peppers or any of your favorite toppings to a regular pizza on this but I love it the way it is and lowering the calories! It totally satisfies the urge to eat a lot of carbs in regular pizza. The bottom is soft not crispy like a pizza crust. I have also substituted cauliflower it isn't as delicious as this but you be the judge.

Zucchini Squash Pizza Recipe

1 shredded medium zucchini or yellow squash  ( I put mine either in the food processor or grate it. Then blot dry with paper towels if its very wet)
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
1/2 teaspoon parsley
1 egg white or whole egg
1/3 cup Parmesan Romano cheese grated
3 tablespoons Italian flavored bread crumbs
1 cup tomato sauce any kind for the topping ( I used 1 fresh large plum tomato put through the food processor left a little chunky)
1 cup low moisture mozzarella cheese grated
salt, pepper to taste
optional : red pepper flakes to taste

Mix the grated squash, garlic, salt, pepper, parsley cheese and eggs in a bowl, add the bread crumbs last mix till blended. Spread into a greased pie plate and bake at 350 for around  15 to 25 minutes till browned on the edges depending on thickness. Remove from oven. Add the sauce and cheese and any other topping you like.  Broil for around 3 minutes on high or until the cheese is golden brown. Serve immediately.
