Transfer to a greased pan and shape into a pizza crust. Then bake for 20 minutes, add toppings, and then bake for an additional 5-10 minutes to melt your toppings. Slice and serve just like regular pizza.

Pro Tips For Making Keto Zucchini Crust Pizza

  • The biggest thing is to ensure you remove all excess liquid from the zucchini. Pat, it dry with a paper towel or even squeeze it out. This will offer a firmer texture to the crust. If you don’t remove the liquid it could fall apart on you as well.
  • Don’t make your crust too thick. If you do make it a bit thicker, you will need to adjust the cooking time to ensure it cooks throughout.
  • Leave Room At Edges so that the toppings don’t run over. Just like regular pizza, there is an outer crust. Remember that when you add on your sauce and toppings.
  • Even crust results in an evenly baked crust.

Can You Freeze Zucchini Pizza Crusts

I am all about meal prepping when I can. I have found that you can freeze this pizza crust once it is baked. Simply bake as directed then allow the crust to cool.

Then wrap in aluminum foil and ensure it is fully sealed up, and place in the freezer. You can keep it frozen anywhere up to 1-3 months.

How to Cook Frozen Zucchini Pizza Crust

Start by pulling your crust from the freeze, then add on your favorite toppings and cook it frozen. Bake at 400 degrees for around 15-20 minutes or until it is warmed and the cheese on top is nice and golden brown.

Keto, Low Carb, Gluten Free, and Delicious

What To Pair with Low Carb Pizza

Generally, when we eat pizza we just eat it alone or pair with a side salad. I find pizza is satisfying enough alone. Or if you want more you can add in a side of fresh veggies for that crunch factor.

How Long Will Zucchini Pizza Crust Last In Fridge

You can keep any leftover pizza for up to three days. Anything after that I would suggest tossing out as you run the risk of eating spoiled food and getting sick.

To warm up you can heat in the microwave, warm up on a skillet or add your slice of pizza into the oven to warm through.
