Courgette / Zucchini Pizza Casserole ... now that's something different ... it's low carb/keto too



For something a little different, why not give this recipe suggestion a try! 

The courgette/zucchini is shredded (grated) and blended with cheese and eggs to form a crust in this family-friendly courgette/zucchini pizza casserole. It’s great topped with sausage and bacon, but any of your favourite pizza toppings can be added to complete the dish. 

Ingredients
Serves Six
8g net carbs per serving
2 medium courgettes/zucchini, shredded (grated)
2 eggs
4 oz. (110g) cream cheese
4 oz. (110g) parmesan cheese, shredded (grated)
8 oz. (225g) mozzarella cheese, shredded (grated)
1 lb (450g) ground (minced) fresh sausage
6 oz. (175g) bacon, chopped
½ large yellow onion, finely diced
7 oz. (200g) unsweetened marinara sauce
Tips 
1. The crust layer can be baked ahead and frozen, then topped later for a quick and easy meal. Or make the entire pizza casserole in advance, freeze it, and re-warm for a super fast meal on a busy night.
2. Read the labels carefully on the bottled marinara sauce as unwanted sugars can sneak in. However, a number of companies are recognizing the growing demand for products without sugar. Look for simple labels with tomatoes, garlic, basil and spices.

Well Eddie, that certainly looks amazing and I bet it is a real treat. I've made a zucchini bread stick type of crust before that you dip in marinara sauce and it was really good. Quite a bit of work with the shredding and then squeezing out the liquid with a cheesecloth, but it was worth it. Thanks for sharing this casserole. It will be something for me to try this winter season. Blessings!
