  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Place the zucchini in a colander and sprinkle with salt; let drain for 15 minutes then squeeze out the moisture.
  2. Combine the zucchini, eggs, Parmesan, 1 cup mozzarella, and 1/2 cup Monterey Jack in a large bowl. Press the mixture into a greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  3. While the zucchini crust is baking, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir in the ground beef and onion. Cook and stir until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease. Stir in the tomato sauce and Italian seasoning.
  4. Spoon the sauce mixture over the baked zucchini crust. Top with the bell pepper, mushrooms, black olives, and the remaining mozzarella and Monterey Jack cheeses. Return to the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes or until heated through. Let sit for 5 minutes before serving.

It needs to be spiced up some. I would put pepperoni or ham on it next time. I don't think I will make it again.

I enjoyed this recipe very much. I like a spicier dish, so I always add garlic and red pepper flakes are a must. It is also great with hot italian seasoned turkey sausage. Basically, anything...

Tasty, but not exactly a crust. As long as you go into this meal expecting a casserole and not a pizza with a crust, you will enjoy it!

I really enjoyed this dish, and not just because it used a lot of things that were about to go bad in my fridge! I followed the directions pretty much to the letter, except I put all the mozzar...

This was a great recipe! I made a couple of adjustments based on what I had in the house. Used 3 eggs (needed to use them up). Instead of grated Parmesan, I used the large "flakes/chunks" which ...

This recipe is excellent! I'm always looking for ways to use up zucchini and this one was a hit! I will add different toppings next time. You can add whatever toppings you like and it would s...

All the family really liked this, especially the unusual zucchini "crust." I used "spicy" spaghetti sauce instead of the tomato sauce, which gave it a bit of nice kick! Next time I will add le...

OOPS! I accidentally skipped the step where you drain the zucchini, but the good news is undrained- the crust part was enough for 2 pie "crusts". I used 1.5lbs of ground beef, and kept the res...
