Zucchini Pizza Crust
This recipe will definitely change your Pizza night!
Pizza crust or Pizza base is made from the same sort of dough as bread, but with slightly different ratios of flour, yeast and water to ensure it doesn't rise quite so much plus olive oil. Pizza base usually uses the same high protein flour as bread dough. Do you know? Crust accounts for most of the carbs in pizza. A medium (12-inch) thin-crust pizza topped with sauce, vegetables, cheese, and meat that's cut into eight pieces has 20-25 grams of carb per slice. A regular-crust pizza averages 30 grams of carb per slice. If you love pizza, you can work around your calorie goals so that you can still indulge in a slice or two once a week. You can also continue toward your weight loss goals by choosing healthier pizza options.
