MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 3, 2014

"After reading comments, I decided to grease and put corn meal on my pan. Came out quite nicely. Added black olives and fresh mushrooms. (And mozzarella cheese :-). Tasty way to use zucchini ! Also drained the shredded zucchini of some of it's moisture."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 27, 2014 Edited Jul. 8, 2014

"Although easy to prepare and tasty, and it looked pretty in the pan, it was impossible to get out of the pan in any form that resembled a piece of pizza (yes, I sprayed it first).

I didn't give up on this recipe. I made it again in a different pan with success.
I also substituted fine corn meal for the flour, since I am sensitive to flour. It worked fabulously and actually I liked the taste much better."

MY REVIEW

"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!)"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 10, 2009

"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 :)"
