Zucchini Pizza Squares

Even if you like zucchini, which I do, the name doesn't sound very appealing, does it? But trust me, you will get raves.

I found this recipe when I was working on a computer magazine. My boss gave me a cut-out newspaper article about something that had to do with the computers we wrote about; I attempted to contact the person in the article, but he never got back to me. This was fine, as the article was dull, and if I had just chosen to retell the story for our magazine, I'd have gone ape.

On the other side of the article, however, was this recipe. I don't know who came up with it, but it's wonderful. I take no credit for that; I'm just passing it on. It's sort of decadent, though.

This is also a very flexible recipe. You can add ingredients to it or subtract them from it. From a practical standpoint, your base is the cheddar, parmesan, garlic, pepper, Bisquick, eggs, and oil; everything else is optional, even the zucchini. (I think I've always used salami rather than pepperoni, and the parsley isn't what I'd call crucial. Also, I almost always use mushrooms.)

This should serve several people.



  1. Cut or grate zucchini.

  2. Combine everything except eggs and oil in large bowl.

  3. Beat eggs and oil separately and stir into other ingredients.

  4. Spread mixture into greased 9-by-13 pan and sprinkle more parmesan on top.

  5. Bake 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until medium brown.

  6. Let cool for a few minutes, then cut into roughly two-inch squares
