When zucchini is plentiful in late summer, I keep this recipe at the front of my card file. It's a wonderful way to take advantage of the season's bounty—and feed a crowd!—Lila McNamara, Dickinson, North Dakota

"I am gluten free and this recipe is easy to convert to gluten free since the crust is made of rice, zucchini and other non-bread ingredients. My whole family loved this. They gobbled it up and didn't care that it was good for them! I used brown rice instead of white, which made this recipe even healthier. A+++"
