Pizza without all the carbs and grain, plus added vegetables!

When working with courgette for baking the trick is to squeeze all the water out.

In order to do that I shred the courgette with my food processor and then wrap it in a kitchen towel and squeeze it until most of the water has gone and the shredded courgette has shrunk quite a bit in size.

The crust will stay soft when baked but you’d never know it’s packed with vegetables! This is picky-eater approved!
