  • Place shredded zucchini in a colander and sprinkle salt on top. Press down to drain as much water as possible. Let sit for 10 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.

  • Add eggs, 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder to the zucchini. Mix well. Press mixture into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake uncovered in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground beef and onion in the hot skillet until beef is browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and discard grease. Mix pizza sauce with cooked beef and spoon over zucchini mixture in the baking pan.

  • Sprinkle remaining mozzarella cheese over the meat. Top with pepperoni slices.

  • Return baking dish to the hot oven and bake until mozzarella cheese is melted, 15 to 20 minutes more.

I added some grilled sweet bell peppers to the recipe to make it more veg friendly but mainly because I had some in the frig that needed to be used. I put them on after the meat sauce and before the pepperoni. Read More

Tasted more like a zucchini lasagna. I liked it but would prefer a higher veggie to meat ratio (I like my vegetables). Great recipe though! Read More
