Zucchini Crust Pizza

It's very exciting to watch my daughter, who does not like anything green to go in her mouth, eat a pizza made of zucchini and actually enjoy it! She even said, get this, that the next time it is pizza night she would not mind eating this kind pizza.

This is really good.  I would so have this again.  

Zucchini Crust Pizza

1 medium to large zucchini shredded
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 cup cheese, shredded
1 egg
1 cup panko crumbs
1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic powder

Preheat oven to 400F. Place a baking stone on bottom shelf of oven.

Shred zucchini on a box grater. Place in bowl and toss with the salt.

Let the zucchini sit for 15 minutes.  Rinse. Squeeze out the excess water.

In a bowl mix egg, cheese and panko crumbs.  Add in salt and pepper to taste.  Also add in garlic powder.

Smooth out into a round and press flat on parchment paper. Transfer the pizza to the baking stone.

Bake for 20 minutes or more. You want it to be golden around the edges.  If you didn't get much of the excess water taken it out, it will take a lot longer.

Smooth tomato sauce on the crust and then sprinkle with cheese.

Return to oven and bake until the cheese is melted.
