Ingredients

  • 2 2 medium zucchini, shredded
  • 2 2 eggeggs
  • 4 oz. 110 g cream cheese
  • 4 oz. 110 g parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 8 oz. 225 g mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 lb 450 g ground fresh sausage
  • 6 oz. 175 g bacon, chopped
  • ½ ½ large yellow onion, finely dicedlarge yellow onions, finely diced
  • 7 oz. 200 g unsweetened marinara sauce

Instructions

Instructions are for 6 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Place the shredded zucchini on a towel, and squeeze the excess moisture out.
  3. Combine zucchini, eggs, cream cheese, parmesan, and half the mozzarella in bowl. Pour into greased 9x13 (23x33 cm) casserole pan or casserole dish lined with parchment paper. Bake for 20 minutes.
  4. While zucchini mixture bakes, cook sausage and bacon with onion in a frying pan until meat is browned.
  5. Spread the marinara sauce over the cooked zucchini crust, then distribute evenly the sausage and bacon mixture. Top with remaining mozzarella cheese.
  6. Return to oven and bake another 10 to 15 minutes until cheese is browned and bubbly.

Tip!

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.

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.

    Yes, minced pork would work well for this.

    If you are veggie (and in the UK/EMEA), Quorn mince and veggie bacon work great with this recipe!

    Love your site and all the work you put into it. I do have a question on this Keto zucchini Pizza casserole. I would like to make it but can you give me an idea on what you consider a "medium" zucchini might be in grams. Zucchini can range from very small like 6" to monstrous like 1 1/2 feet long. At least in Canada they range in sizes like this depending on how long you leave them in the garden. Thanks again.

    A medium zucchini is approximately 8" and weighs about 5 ounces.
