Zucchini Pizza (keto, gluten-free)

Zucchini pizza is a great alternative to regular pizza for those on a ketogenic diet. Zucchini meets the requirements of the ketogenic diet with its low carbohydrate content and is also rich in fiber. In this way, it increases the feeling of fullness and supports the digestive system as well.

The ketogenic diet is a diet based on low carb and high fat consumption. This diet offers many health benefits, including losing weight, increasing energy levels, and balancing blood sugar levels. However, it may be necessary to give up some foods while following the keto diet. One of these is traditional pizza dough. However, you can still enjoy your keto diet with alternatives such as zucchini pizza.

Zucchini: The Faithful Friend of the Ketogenic Diet

Zucchini is one of the faithful friends of the keto diet. While it contains a small amount of carbs, it is rich in fiber and gives the body a feeling of satiety. It is also a rich source of vitamins and antioxidants. When used in a pizza dough, zucchini has a much lower carbohydrate content than traditional flour-based bases.

Keto Diet and Zucchini Pizza

Keto diet has become one of the popular nutrition trends of recent years. This diet, based on low-carb, high-fat and moderate protein consumption, may have positive effects on weight loss and metabolic health.

The ketogenic diet causes the body to enter a state called ketosis. In this case, the body uses fats for energy and produces molecules called ketones. In this way, the weight loss process accelerates and energy levels increase at the same time.


Zucchini pizza offers a low-carb meal option. The high-carb flour found in traditional pizza dough is not used in the zucchini pizza recipe. In this way, it is possible to keep carbohydrate intake low. The recipe is also gluten-free since no white flour is used. With these features, it is an ideal option for those with sensitive digestion. Additionally, zucchini pizza supports digestion and increases the feeling of fullness, thanks to its fiber content. This may also contribute to weight management.

Each slice of zucchini pizza crust contains 2 g net carbohydrates and 79 kcal.

Zucchini Pizza Recipe


  • Grated zucchini: You can use the leftover zucchinis from the zucchini noodles recipe to make zucchini pizza. Be sure to squeeze out excess water from the zucchinis after grating it.
  • Shredded mozzarella: I recommend using a hard cheese like aged cheddar or hard mozzarella.
  • Egg: Since it is a gluten-free recipe, we will need eggs to gather the dough.
  • Coconut Flour: In addition to being a ketogenic and gluten-free flour, it has high liquid absorbency. We will need a small amount for this recipe.
  • Tomato Sauce: You can also use keto ketchup instead.
  • Your favorite pizza toppings (mushrooms, peppers, olives, pepperoni, etc.)
  • Salt, thyme, basil (optional)

You can find the exact quantities in the recipe card below.

How to Make Zucchini Pizza Crust?

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).

Step 2: Start by grating the zucchini. You should use the grated zucchini after squeezing out the excess water. To do this, squeeze the water out of the zucchinis as much as you can, either with your hand or with the help of a clean cloth.

As another method, you can spread the grated zucchinis on the tray and bake them in the oven for 15 minutes until the water evaporates. Use whatever method you like, then place dried zucchinis into a mixing bowl.


Step 3: Add eggs, cheddar, coconut flour and salt and mix all ingredients thoroughly.


Step 4: Place baking paper on a baking tray or you can also use a silpat. Spread the dough thinly on the silpat.


Step 5: Bake it in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes without adding any ingredients on it. Baking time will vary depending on the thickness of the dough. You should cook it until it is lightly browned.


Step 6: When you take the pizza crust out of the oven, put the pizza sauce and any toppings you want on it and put it back in the oven. At this stage you can increase the temperature to 200°C (400°F). Bake for about 10 minutes until the cheese melts.


Step 7: Remove from the oven and slice into slices to serve. Enjoy!
