turkey zucchini pizza bake


This is a new favorite on my food playlist.  If you’ve ever made the zucchini crust pizza, this is kinda the same thing but in a baking dish with some turkey meat sauce added on top for extra protein and flavor.  I am a major fan since it’s grain free and tastes sooo good.

Again, the green pepper and olives are not a must.. you can sub in any “toppings” that you prefer like pepperoni to give it more of a PIZZA feel.  Recipe slightly adapted from an allrecipes.com post.


  • 2 large zucchini, shredded (about 4 cups)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 15 oz jar marinara sauce
  • 1 large bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped kalamata olives


Place zucchini shreds in a large colander with the salt and allow to drain for 15 minutes.  Using paper towels squeeze out as much of the liquid as possible.

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Combine the zucchini, eggs, Parmesan cheese, 1 cup of the mozzarella and 1/2 cup of the pepper jack.  Place mixture into a greased 9×13″ baking dish and press down.  Bake for 20 minutes.

While thats happening…

In a large non stick skillet, sauté the onion and turkey, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 7 minutes.  Drain any juices from the pan.  Next, stir in the marinara sauce and remove pan from heat.

Remove the baking dish from the oven and top with the meat sauce.  Next add the remainder of the shredded cheese and top with your peppers and olives.  Bake an additional 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow 20 minutes before slicing.

Yields 6 servings.

…delicious happens
