Zucchini Crust Pizza

Zucchini Crust Pizza
Source: Moosewood Cookbook by Mollie Katzen

olive oil and flour for the pan

2 cups packed grated zucchini

2 eggs, beaten

1/4 cup flour

1/2 cup grated mozzarella

1/2 cup grated parmesan

optional: pinches of basil, marjoram, or other herbs

2 T olive oil

Topping suggestions: extra olive oil

extra cheese

2-3 large garlic cloves, sliced

sauteed mushrooms

sliced olives

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Generously oil a 10 inch pie pan and coat lightly with flour. Combine zucchini, eggs, flour, mozzarella, parmesan, herbs and 1 T olive oil in a bowl and mix well. Spread into the prepared pan and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until golden brown. About halfway through the baking, brush with the remaining T of olive oil. Remove from oven. When it has cooled for about 10 minutes, use a spatula to loosen the crust from the pan, so it won't break later. Top with your favorite pizza items and bake at 400 degrees until heated through.
