ZUCCHINI-CRUSTED PIZZA

CRUST:
3 1/2 c. grated zucchini
3 eggs, beaten
1/3 c. flour
1/2 c. grated Mozzarella
1/2 c. grated Parmesan
1/2 tsp. basil, minced
Salt and pepper

PIZZA TOPPING:
Tomato sauce
Cheese, etc.
Salt zucchini lightly and let sit 15 minutes. Squeeze out all excess moisture. Combine crust ingredients and spread onto an oiled 9x13 inch baking pan. Bake 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees until surface is dry and firm. Brush top with oil and broil it under moderate heat for 5 minutes.

Pile all of your favorite pizza toppings on and heat in a 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes. Serve hot

I just made this tonight and it's really good. I was really hungry and really missing pizza and I have PMS so I had to make something good and keep in line with my diet.

I put on homemade sauce, whole milk mozzerella and drunken goat cheese, yes it is cured in wine and it is awesome, Whole Foods carries it. Those two cheeses are low on the acid scale, I did not use parmesan it is the most acidifying of all cheeses.

I added spinach, tomatoes and red onion. It was really good even Brennan liked it, Kieran didn't like it and Cassie wouldn't try it.
