Main Dish, Yeast Breads

Zucchini Crust Personal Pizza

I saw a picture on Pinterest which lead me to make this recipe. The site that Pinterest directs you to is kalynskitchen.com and she makes an all zucchini crust and it looks delicious. I love the idea of incorporating zucchini into the crust, I just still want the bread too. So, this is my version, thanks Kalyn for the delicious idea. This has become one of our favorite dinners.

Zucchini Crust:
2 cups grated zucchini
2 Tbl water

In microwave safe dish, put grated zucchini and 2 Tbl water. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave 2 minutes. Cool while making the dough.

1/3 cup warm water (110°)
1 tsp dry yeast
1 tsp sugar
1 Tbl olive oil
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp seasoning salt

Add warm water to bowl, sprinkle yeast over water, and sprinkle sugar over yeast. Let sit until foamy. Add olive oil, flour, and salt. Stir just until combined. Drain and squeeze water from cooked zucchini, add to dough and stir just enough to combined. Let rest for 10 minutes.

Preheat oven to 500°. Turn zucchini dough out onto well floured surface, coat with flour, and cut in half. Working with one half and adding more flour as necessary, press into a circle. Place on baking sheet lined with silpat and sprinkled with cornmeal or sprayed with nonstick spray and cornmeal. Press out so the circle fills half of baking sheet. Repeat with other half of dough. Let rest for about 15 minutes. Bake crust for 5-8 minutes. Remove from oven, spread with sauce, cheese, and desired toppings. Return to oven for another 5-10 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.
