When you’re in the mood for pizza, what’s your go-to? Maybe it’s homemade or a favorite local pizzeria? New York-style pizza is where my heart truly lies, and back in the day I had a pizzeria I’d hit up whenever a craving struck.

These days I like to keep carbs low when I can, even when eating pizza.

I tend to get a little creative when I need my fix like pizza kale and paleo flatbread pizza (made with my paleo flatbread as the base).

I make another kind of low-carb “pizza”:

  1. Sauté onion in a little olive oil with turkey pepperoni.
  2. Sprinkle on a handful of shredded mozzarella cheese cooked until melted.
  3. Top with a couple spoons of marinara and a little handful of chopped olives.
  4. Serve!

That is by far the easiest (and one of the most delicious) ways to cure a pizza craving. And it’s ready in less time than it would take to drive to your favorite local spot and pick up a slice.

But sometimes you want to eat pizza and also get in your veggie intake, right? Enter this Zucchini Pizza Casserole concoction!

I know to pizza purists this will in no way qualify as pizza. But it has a lot of the same flavors going on. And I’d much rather nourish my body with veggies than feel lethargic and bloated from eating a regular slice. It eventually comes to the point where you don’t even miss the carbs.

This is by far the easiest low carb zucchini pizza casserole type of recipe!

I don’t bother shredding the zucchini. I just slice it up, give it a quick saute, and toss it into a casserole dish.

Then top it with tomato sauce, cheese, and your pizza toppings of choice.

Give it a quick broil to melt the cheese, and dinner is served.
