Zucchini Pizza Casserole

Zucchini Pizza Casserole

This casserole is basically a carb free pizza that you can really top with all your favorite pizza toppings. We used sautéed mushrooms, but you can add olives, sun-dried tomatoes, more sautéed veggies, like peppers and spinach, artichokes, and even eggplant.

It’s easy to make ahead, it even can be frozen, but it likely won’t last long enough.
