This is another great way to use up zucchini. If you want to make it gluten free, use soy or oat flour.
I did find this on a recipe website many years ago. That website is no longer around. But, this fabulous recipe is.
You will need a medium size(12-14") pizza pan that is very well greased. Grease well or the crust sticks in the pan.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
3-1/2 cups grated zucchini
3 beaten eggs
1/3 cup flour
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cut grated Parmesan cheese
1 Tablespoon minced fresh basil- in a pinch use 1/2 Tablespoon dried
Oil to brush over crust
In a large bowl, salt the zucchini and let stand about 15 minutes to draw out moisture.
Drain and squeeze out as much excess moisture as you can.
Add the rest of the ingredients- except oil- and stir until combined well.
Spread the mixture onto the greased pizza pan.
Bake for 25 minutes or til the surface is dry and firm.
Remove from oven and turn oven to broil.
Brush oil over the surface of the crust.
Stick under broiler for a few minutes just to brown. Watch closely so it doesn't get too dark.
To make pizza, add whatever toppings you like and bake an additional 20 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Let stand 5-10 minutes before cutting and serving.
