Zucchini Pizza Crust

  • Author: Whip & Wander
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 35 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hours 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 large pizza crust 1x
  • Category: Mains
  • Cuisine: American

Scale

Ingredients

  • 5 medium zucchini, grated (about 3 1/3 cups grated)
  • 23 tsp sea salt (for disgorging)
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp dried oregano (optional)

Instructions

  1. Shred the zucchini in a food processor, with a julienne slicer, or a cheese grater.
  2. Disgorge the shredded zucchini (remove the excess water) by sprinkling liberally with salt. (2-3 tsp should be plenty) and set aside for 20 minutes.
  3. Now is a good time to preheat your oven to 375 degrees F (190 C).
  4. After 20 minutes, transfer the zucchini to a few layers of cheesecloth and squeeze out the excess water. You should end up with a lot of liquid and a much smaller pile of zucchini shreds.
  5. Combine zucchini mulch with the remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl. I find that a wooden spoon works best for incorporating the ingredients into a pliable dough.
  6. Turn out the dough into a baking paper-lined baking sheet and spread into an even layer, about 1/3 inch thick. We generally use a round aerated pizza pan that measures 15.75 inches, but a regular large cookie sheet will work well also.
  7. Pop the pizza crust in the oven for 25-35 minutes, checking at the 25-minute mark. The crust should be starting to turn a nice golden brown on top. Let crust cool before topping.
  8. After you’ve dressed your pie in toppings, pop it back in the oven for another 20 minutes.

Notes

Let your crust cool before loading it up with sauce and toppings, and let it cool just slightly again before slicing and eating. This will help prevent the crust from becoming soggy with toppings and help your crust stay together so you achieve a good consistency for picking it up and eating by hand.
