Reviews for Zucchini Crust Pizza
"Can I use egg instead of egg substitute?"
""if you want to be happy for the rest of your life, choose an ugly woman to be your wife," my husband sings as he chews this "pizza". I don't know what you guys are talking about, but this was no pizza! Quiche - maybe. In my home in Denver Colorado, this was a doughy blob. It looked very pretty in the pan, but no way to get it out other than by folding it over (and exposing it's gooey under belly). I even took the high altitude into consideration. Fortunately, my family recognized how victimized I felt by this recipe and gulped it down with a smile plastered on their faces.The flavors seemed to blend well, but I'd certainly add more flour. I checked the recipe 2 or 3 times to see if I read it incorrectly.Other songs that were hummed while eating this experiment:'Beauty's only skin deep' and the like."
"Pretty good. It's something different from our normal eating routine, so that was nice! It definitely has a quiche like quality. As another reviewer suggested, I squeezed out my zucchini with a clean dish towel. Next time I think I would put some garlic in the crust. Also, use parchment paper, NOT wax paper... otherwise grease/corn meal your pan crazy well!"
"Crust was way to wet. After baking middle remained doughy. The flavor was strange. Terrible!"
"We loved this recipe! Used my "zoodle maker" (like a julienne/mandoline shredder) to shred the zucchini as well as other veggies in the pizza. Also added some mushrooms & one cooked & crumbled Italian sausage, increased onion & green pepper to 1 whole of each. Used fresh herbs from the garden instead of dried. Used 1 c mozza & 1 c cheddar as I didn't have enough mozza. Also cut the salt in the crust to 1/4 tsp salt & added 1/4 tsp Mrs. Dash. Did use parchment paper to cover the pizza stone, sprayed with oil, & a light sprinkle of cornmeal. This recipe is a keeper!"
