Since discovering that zucchini are a healthy low-carb alternative that take on the consistency of breads and pasta which used to be my favourite foods, I now use it food so many interesting recipes. This one is my take on Pizza that I found somewhere and modified. Its mild flavour makes it a perfect substitute for almost anything.
