cooking methods

  • Bake


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large (17x11-inch) rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Place shredded zucchini in cheesecloth or a clean kitchen cloth; squeeze out excess liquid.
  2. In large mixing bowl, combine dried zucchini, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, cornstarch, beaten eggs, 1 teaspoon Mama Mia Marinara Sauce Mix and Garlic Garlic™ Seasoning. Mix until well combined.
  3. Transfer zucchini mixture to parchment lined baking sheet. Press into a 15x10-inch rectangle. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, in small bowl, combine crushed tomatoes with 2 tablespoons Mama Mia Marinara Sauce Mix; set aside.
  4. Sprinkle remaining 2 cups mozzarella cheese and remaining 1 tablespoon Mama Mia Marinara Sauce Mix over browned zucchini crust. Continue baking 10 minutes. Cut cheesy "bread" into strips and serve with marinara sauce.
Makes 6-8 servings.

Tip: Reheat leftovers in a preheated 425°F oven 5-10 minutes. (Reheating in microwave will result in soggy "bread" sticks).

Serving Suggestion: For a great pizza crust, prepare through step 3. Spread with desired amount of marinara sauce, top with your favorite pizza toppings and desired amount of remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake 10-12 minutes or until desired doneness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe is a winner! My husband and I ate almost the whole thing! I used this recipe as a pizza crust. I subbed arrowroot powder for the corn starch, and sprinkled on some Italian Garlic Bread Seasoning as well. I used the pizza toppings I had on hand: salami, kalamata olives, chopped red onion, and a few sun dried tomatoes. SO good; I'll definitely make this again!
