My husband has a hearty appetite—our two kids never tire of pizza—and I grow lots of zucchini. So this tasty, tomatoey casserole is absolutely tops with us throughout the entire year. Once you've tried the recipe, you may even decide to grow more zucchini in your own garden next summer! —Lynn Bernstetter, White Bear Lake, Minnesota

This is a awesome pizza for a gluten free diet. I used my home made red sauce omitted the cheddar cheese and topped it with sauteed mushrooms, onions, orange pepper, & black olives, and topped with green onion before serving.

How I made the recipe shown: I did green onion instead of white onion, no ground beef, turkey bacon without nitrates, red and green bell peppers diced, and my bottom layer (crust) also contained squash with the zucchini. 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. IT WAS AWESOME!!!
