    I started this on the gas BBQ but really think it would do better using the oven the whole time.


    Chopping toppings.

    What a great idea for using up some of your zucchini!   I don't have a garden, but that looks good enough I might buy some zucchini to try out!

    Thanks for posting and sharing your recipe, and Happy Labor Day!

    Do it, it is super good. I don't know if I can go back to pizza dough!!! Smoked cheese would be fantastic on it.

    Thanks Clarissa it is super good. Only thing I might do different next time is to squeeze some of the liquid out of the zucchini. If we didn't have nice big steaks for tonight we'd be having this again!

    Thanks! It was super yummy! I must admit that I added more mozzarella and parm than called for in the crust mix! We love cheese!

    Nothing wrong with extra cheese... and for sure.. some nice smoked cheese on top would give it that oh so great smoky flavor we all love.
    I will try this for sure...

    This was a full on vegetarian pizza, even the sausage was veggie sausage!

    I think it would be good to replace the pizza sauce with BBQ sauce and top with pulled smoked chicken!!!!

    Did you just use a cheese grater to shred the z's? My best friend is a vegaterian... So Im always looking for different recipes to cook for her. That away she isnt left out when I pull all the meat out of the smoker. Looked into making my own veggy sausage... but Ill just stick to store bought stuff for her for now til I get the sausage making down alittle more.. I really need a stuffer!  :)

    Yep just used the course side of the cheese grater. I didn't squeeze any water out of the zucchini and think that I will next time.

    FYI we used egg substitute in place of the egg to make this vegetarian friendly.

    That looks great and a new one to me. I have had Zucchini bread enough times I should have thought of that.
