My mother-in-law shared the recipe for this unique pizza with me. It’s just right for brunch, lunch or a light supper. Loosen the nutritious zucchini crust from the pan with a metal spatula.

Zucchini Crust Pizza

Ingredients

2 cups shredded zucchini (1 to 1-1/2 medium), squeezed dry
1/2 cup egg substitute or 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
