This is an excellent alternative to traditional pizza crust. I adapted it from one I found at Your Lighter Side. I made it for the first time tonight. I was so impressed! I cut up one of my slices and took it out to my children, and the neighborhood kids who were with them. I gave each a bite before telling what it was made with. One of the visitors, who had declared his bite to be very good, was shocked when I told them it had zucchini in it. He exclaimed, "But I don't LIKE zucchini!" I said, "Yes, you do, you just told me you did!" and he grinned.
