Zucchini Pizza Crust With Lemony Pea Pesto

Zucchini Pizza Crust With Lemony Pea Pesto

Zucchini is a surprisingly chameleon-like vegetable—I find myself using it frozen in morning smoothies, puréed in desserts and now, grated in pizza crust! This zucchini pizza crust is a great way to sneak in extra servings of vegetables, and it is naturally lower in carbohydrates and higher in fiber compared with traditional crusts.

This recipe pays homage to a cauliflower crust, which is one of my most popular recipes from my blog. Both of these recipe components, the crust and pea pesto, can be enjoyed on their own, yet when combined, it’s evident they’re meant to be enjoyed together.

As a matter of flax

To make a flax egg, combine 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed with 3 Tbsp water. Let mixture sit and thicken for 5 minutes before using. Double the recipe for 2 flax eggs, triple for 3 flax eggs and so on. Use flax eggs as a 1:1 vegan egg replacement in baking.
