Pizza base

• 1 courgette, grated
• 1/3 cup self-raising flour
• 1/2 clove garlic, crushed
• 1 tbsp chopped fresh herbs
• 1 egg
• 2 tbsp grated cheese


• 2 tbsp pizza sauce
• 2 tbsp grated cheese


1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
2. Place baking paper on a baking tray.
3. Place courgette in a clean tea towel or over a sieve and squeeze out as much moisture as possible into a bowl.
4. Into another bowl, combine courgette, flour, garlic, herbs, egg, and cheese. Mix the dough with clean hands and press into a circle 1cm thick onto baking paper on the baking tray. Depending on how much liquid is squeezed out of the grated courgette will determine how wet the mixture will be.
5. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes until lightly golden brown and the bottom is starting to brown.
6. Carefully remove from the oven, flip over and top with pizza sauce and cheese. Bake for another 3-5 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
7. Remove from oven, allow to cool slightly, then slice into 8 pieces and serve.


Rub a drop of oil between your hands before pressing the dough to stop the mixture sticking to hands.
