If you’re anything like me, pizza is definitely one of your favorite foods, or at least top 5. However, pizza is loaded with carbs and the pizza crust is 100% the blame.
Recently I’ve fell in loveeee with zucchini. So I’ve been searching for creative yummy zucchini recipes and I stumbled upon a zucchini crust pizza! What!!! Of course I had to try it!! I adjusted the recipe to my liking and I think you guys will enjoy:
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon of almond flour
1 cup of baby Spinach
1 cup of sautéed mushrooms
1 cup mozzarella cheese
Grilled jumbo shrimp (as many as you like)
Grilled chicken (as much as you want)
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Use a grater to prep the zucchini. In a big bowl mix the zucchini, Parmesan cheese, egg, and almond flour together. Once mixed use your hands to squeeze the juice from the mixture.
Place parchment paper on a nonstick pan and create a pizza shape with the zucchini mixture.
Place in the oven for 16 minutes. Check the crust halfway through. After 16 minutes adjust the oven to 500 degrees. Continue baking the zucchini for an additional 5 mins. Remember to continuously check the crust and remove the zucchini once it’s brown.
Turn the oven down to 350 degrees. Start by spreading a spoonful of tomato sauce on top of the zucchini crust. Add spinach, mushroom, chicken and shrimp, then top with mozzarella cheese. Feel free to be creative with the toppings!
Place in the oven for an additional 5 minutes and wahla!!! Soooo yummy and of course super healthy!!
