Gluten Free Pizza on Zucchini-Sage Crust


Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a 12-inch pizza pan with parchment paper. Sprinkle with the 1 tablespoon cornmeal; set pan aside.

  • Place shredded zucchini in a colander set in the sink; press several times with paper towels to remove excess moisture (you should have 2 cups packed zucchini after draining).

  • For crust, in a large bowl combine egg, 1 cup of the cheese, the flour, the 1/4 cup cornmeal, the sage, and garlic. Stir in the drained zucchini. Spoon mixture onto the prepared pizza pan. Using your hands, press into an even layer. Drizzle with oil.

  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven; cool slightly. Using a spatula, loosen crust but do not remove from pan (this keeps the crust from sticking after the final baking).

  • Top with desired pizza toppings and the remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake about 8 minutes more or until toppings are heated through and cheese is melted. To serve, cut into 12 wedges.
