Recipe type: Pizza
- 3 medium zucchini, or about 4 cups grated zucchini
- 1 large egg
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- ½ tsp. dried oregano
- 3 c. shredded mozzarella, divided
- ½ c. grated Parmesan
- ¼ c. cornstarch
- kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- ¼ c. pizza sauce
- ¼ c. pepperoni
- Pinch red pepper flakes, for garnish

- Preheat oven to 425º and line a baking sheet with parchment. On a box grater or in a food processor, grate zucchini. Using cheesecloth or a dish towel, wring excess moisture out of zucchini.
- Transfer zucchini to a large bowl with egg, garlic, oregano, 1 cup mozzarella, Parmesan, and cornstarch and season with salt and pepper. Stir until completely combined.
- Transfer “dough” to prepared baking sheet and pat into a crust. Bake until golden and dried out, 25 minutes.
