Zucchini Pizza Casserole Recipe

I grow zucchini by the bushel, so this pizza casserole is one of my dinnertime go-to's. My hungry husband and kids gobble it right up. —Lynn Bernstetter, White Bear Lake, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 cups shredded unpeeled zucchini
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (15 ounces) Italian tomato sauce
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, chopped

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 400°. Place zucchini in colander; sprinkle with salt. Let stand 10 minutes, then squeeze out moisture.
  • 2. Combine zucchini with eggs, Parmesan and half of mozzarella and cheddar cheeses. Press into a greased 13x9-in. or 3-qt. baking dish. Bake 20 minutes.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, cook beef and onion over medium heat, crumbling beef, until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add tomato sauce; spoon over zucchini mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheeses; add red pepper. Bake until heated through, about 20 minutes longer.
  • 4. Freeze option: Cool baked casserole; cover and freeze. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°. Unwrap casserole; reheat on a lower oven rack until heated through and a thermometer inserted in center reads 165°. Yield: 8 servings.

"This is excellent. I loved that it tastes like pizza and the zucchini was essentially hidden in the dish. I did make a few changes - ground turkey instead of ground beef and I ran out of mozzarella cheese so I ended up using cheddar to replace it. I would absolutely make this again, maybe adding a few pizza toppings to it as well."

"I made this casserole on 11/1/16 and it's delicious! I did use 3 small red peppers, ground turkey in place of the beef, 2 cups shredded Pizza cheese blend and 1 cup Pepper-Jack/Cheddar cheese blend since I had those prepared cheeses on hand. I'd also added 1 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper to the ground turkey/chopped onion and I used a 15-oz. can pizza sauce. I used a 3-qt. casserole. delowenstein"

It was YUMMY.....loved the baked shredded zucchini-cheese base and can't go wrong with a tomato beef mixture with more cheese. Two thumbs way up and a perfect casserole to make anytime.

I substituted mild provolone cheese for the cheddar and added some slices of turkey pepperoni for a little more "pizza" flavor.

"I've made this twice in the last two weeks, as it's become one of my husband's top faves of my recipes. It's just the two of us, so I always halve the recipe and bake it in an 8X8 pan (it takes a little less time, and I cover it for the last ten minutes of baking to prevent over browning), and we get three dinners out of it. This time, I made it in the morning, as (1) it doesn't heat the house up quite as much earlier in the day, and (2) we both think it tastes better after it sits awhile. I generally avoid cheesy-meaty dishes during the hotter months, but this one doesn't come off as heavy because of the zucchini "crust". I've made it without the peppers on top or with roasted red peppers, and it's super either way."

I used a food processor attachment to shred the zuke and squash. Added an extra egg white as I had I had more veggies at the bottom layer. Added crushed red pepper to my pizza sauce layer.

"When I first mentioned this to DH, his response was somewhat short of enthusiastic. But his motto is "I'll try anything once." He absolutely raved about this dish. After reading many of the reviews, I made sure that my zucchini was as dry as possible. I didn't use salt, but squeezed the shredded zucchini through some linen towels and then lit it sit for about a half hour. Then squeezed it through paper towels. I really wanted a firm crust so baked it for 25 minutes rather than 20. That timing was absolutely perfect; the edges were just starting to brown. I added garlic, red pepper flakes and some dried oregano to the sauce, and sprinkled some fresh julienned basil on top of the casserole right before baking. The ground beef was more prevalent a flavor than I had expected, and the zucchinie was less. This is a great casserole in which to "hide" vegetables. We'd love to try it with Italian sausage instead of the ground beef, but unfortunately that would raise the fat content through the roof. All and all, a yummy recipe."

After I pressed it into the dish I used several paper towels to soak up excess liquid. After baking the zucchini was still a little "liquidy", but not bad. I'm wondering how it would be with 1 egg instead. With the 2 eggs it didn't seem to bind the zucchini, in fact it seems the cheese would do a good enough job.

"Have not made this recipe yet, but sounds really delish! My neighbor has an abundance of zucchini, while I only planted two plants this year. I will definitely print her out a copy of this recipe! Has anyone tried throwing in some sliced or chunked pepperoni too? Once I make the recipe as directed, I always "tweek" it, so I may add some pepperoni the second time. I know my family will love this recipe. Can't wait to make it and will report back : ) I may also make one for my son who went back to college, and is living in an apt. near campus. He and his room mates would love this : )"

"Wonderful, delicious, versatile, can't wait to make it again. The zucchini crust is fantastic. The key is to squeeze all the liquid out and then squeeze it again. You can make this any way you like your pizza. It also reheats very well for left-overs. Thanks for this great recipe."

"Delicious!! I don't care for zucchini or hamburger, but this was great! You can mostly taste cheese (yum). Also, depending on how you fix up the tomato sauce, it adds nice flavor (I added some red pepper as suggested). I also liked the green peppers on top- the crispness was a nice contrast.

I would liken the bottom layer to an egg bake consistency and taste."

My Changes: I used frozen shredded zucchini, so didn't need the salt to draw the water.
Sauteed the green pepper with beef and onion.
Sprinkled sliced ripe olives on top of the meat sauce, before putting on the cheeses.When cheeses melted as it cooked, the olives peeked thru. Will be making this again. Hope somebody gives us zucchini as i thought we had so much frozen from last year that we didn't plant any this year. Jan."
