MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 24, 2014

I replaced the all-purpose flour with 2tbs of chia seeds, with pleasing results. After spreading the zucchini in the bottom of the pan, I fixed the rest of the ingredients to give the chia seeds time to soften a little. It was the first time that I have used them in place of flour and I think it turned out great for a first-time trial recipe. ( Have used them in oatmeal!)

I made this last night and it was really good. i added fresh basil leaves and turkey pepperoni. The crust is a little eggy, almost like a giant pizza fritata. But the flavor was excellent! And yet another use for all my zucchini :)
