My dearly beloved Aunt Sophie had turned me onto this great tasting pizza that really is very healthy for you. My son Ricky went wild for it and he did not know that it was zucchini. It takes about 45 minutes to prepare but it is great in taste and also good for the waist line. So here we go and thanks Aunt Sophie.


4 cups zucchini

1 egg

2 tablespoons oil

1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

salt, pepper to taste

1 med. chopped onion

1/2 lb of ground beef (optional)

tomato sauce (to taste1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese

green peppers

anything else you might want for toppings



Cut ends off zucchini, seed and grate. Put in a colander and sprinkle with salt. Let it stand for 30 minutes and then squeeze water out with hands.  When it is dry, sauté in oil for about 5 minutes. Cool a little and add the egg, cheddar, salt and pepper. Press mixture into a 9” pie pan and bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes. While the mixture is cooking heat oil in skillet and add onions, peppers or what ever you toppings are except the cheeses and heat until translucent or brown for the meat. Pour the fat off and stir it into your tomato sauce. Spread it over your zucchini crust and top it with the cheese. Bake in oven at 350 for about 20 minutes. Dominoes or papa john’s cannot equal.
