Zucchini Onion Pizza

Throwback Thursday – My roommate from the 80’s messaged me on Facebook asking me for a gluten free, dairy free pizza recipe. Thanks to food and social media.

My foodie posts, yoga shares, and all my other goodies are being seen and well received. Yeah!!! I was so honored to hear from my roomie, asking me to help brainstorm the perfect pizza. Truth be told when it comes to pizza anything goes and we all have our favorites. Putting this one in my recipe box. It’s pretty impressive if I may say so myself.

Today, as I was grocery shopping at my local health food store I came across a gluten free, nut free, dairy free, blah, blah, blah… pizza crust. Rather focus on the sauce and save time on the crust. Well, receiving my former roomies message after buying pizza crusts (and with all her requests) – I started experimenting in my kitchen. I came up with a very sophisticated pizza. I had a lot of fun creating this pizza but it’s quite dangerous – I keep on going for one slice after another. It’s that good!

Thanks R’enette for connecting. Hope you enjoy this recipe. Huge pizza hug!

Zucchini Onion Pizza 

Ingredients for Sauce:

2 tbsp butter or coconut oil or canola oil
½ sweet onion, shredded
½ cup zucchini, shredded
¼ cup vegan mozzarella cheese or regular cheese or goat cheese
1 tbsp kuzu or arrowroot (substitute for cornstarch) – thickener
Sea salt and black pepper to taste

Pizza Crust:

Kinnikinnick Gluten Free Pizza Crust

Instructions:

  1. Heat butter or coconut oil or canola oil
  2. Add the shredded onions and sauté for a few minutes. Add the cheese (any variety), kuzu, sea salt, black pepper, and allow the mixture to melt together over low heat.
  3. Add the shredded zucchini to the mixture.
  4. Place two pizza crusts on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper
  5. Add the sauce evenly over the pizza crusts than sprinkle more shredded zucchini and black pepper on top
  6. Place in oven or toaster oven at 375 degrees and bake for 15-20 minutes
  7. Wait 3 minutes and cut into squares

Personally, I like crispy pizza. If you are baking the pizzas in a toaster oven than after the pizzas bake put the toaster setting on for a few minutes. The pizza crust will be crunchy and scrumptious. It’s you’re call! Your pizza! Your pizza-art!

Note: Tomato sauce can be added as that is the traditional pizza that we are accustomed to, but being creative is so much more fun and different. Shake it up!

If you have any questions about ingredients that I use in my recipes please connect with me. Love to talk food!

Embrace, Enjoy, Live, Laugh, Love, and EAT!

Much love,
Genia
