  • nonstick cooking spray
  • grated zucchini
    2 cup
  • salt
    1/4 tsp
  • crushed tomatoes
    3/4 cup
  • dried oregano
    1 tsp
  • garlic powder
    1/2 tsp
  • dried basil
    1/2 tsp
  • almond flour
    1/3 cup
  • reduced-fat shredded mozzarella cheese
    1/2 cup
  • large egg
  • dried rosemary
    1/4 tsp
  • black pepper
    1/4 tsp
  • thinly sliced prosciutto
    1 oz
  • arugula
    1 cup


  1. Preheat your oven to 500 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.

  2. Line a large plate or cutting board with four layers of paper towels or a clean dish towel. Put the grated zucchini on top and sprinkle with salt. Let sit for 5-10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, stir together the crushed tomatoes, oregano, garlic powder, and basil. Set aside.

  4. Once the zucchini has sat for at least 5 minutes, cover with another layer of towels and squeeze out as much moisture as you can. Add the drained zucchini to a large bowl with the almond flour, egg, cheese, rosemary, and black pepper. Mix well.

  5. Place the zucchini dough in the middle of the prepared baking sheet. Press into a rectangle or circle about 1/4-inch thick. Bake the crust for 12 minutes, until it is lightly browned and the edges are crispy.

  6. Remove from the oven, and immediately spread the tomato sauce on the crust while it is still hot. Top with prosciutto slices and arugula, then cut into 6 equal slices.

    Loved this pizza, the sauce was delicious.the pizza crust tasted like a zucchini omelet and was soft and not firm. The arugula makes this pizza taste so much better, I added cheese and the prosciutto on top of the tomato sauce and put it in the oven to melt then added the arugula after I took it out. Crust was okay just wish it was hard or crunchy.
