Zucchini Crusted Pizza
Adapted from The Moosewood Cookbook

3.5 cups zucchini, grated
3 eggs
1/3 cup rice protein powder OR 1/3 cup unflavored protein powder or soy powder (not soy flour!)
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup Parmesan, grated
1 pinch dried basil (or two)
Salt and pepper
Pizza sauce
Pizza toppings

Sprinkle the zucchini with a little salt, and let it sit for 15-30 minutes. Put it in a strainer and press out the excess moisture. Now, beat together everything but the pizza sauce and toppings. Spray a 9x13" baking pan with non-stick spray, or oil it well, and spread the zucchini/egg/cheese mixture in it. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until firm. Then brush it with a little oil, and broil it for about 5 minutes, until it's golden.

Next, spread on the pizza sauce, then add your cheese and other toppings. If you're using vegetables you may want to sauté them a bit first. Bake the whole thing for *another* 25 minutes, then cut in squares and
serve. All this needs with it is a big salad - Italian dressing, of course!
