Zucchini-Crusted Pizza

This is a great recipe to use up a big zucchini. These are good enough that we eat them plain with no toppings. Sometimes toppings can make it soggy, so dry toppings might work best. I have enjoyed this recipe so much that I sometimes make a bunch of crusts and half bake them and freeze them in a stack with wax paper between them, in gallon zip lock bags. They can be gluten-free by using a gluten-free flour mixture.
