What you need:
Olive Oil (Extra Virgin)
Sweet Basil Crushed
3 Medium Zucchini shredded.
1 cup mozzarella shredded.
1 cup Pepper Jack shredded
1 Green Pepper chopped in about 1/2 inch pieces
4 oz of Mushrooms sliced
1 bunch of Green Onions sliced
2 Tomatoes cut into cubes
1 large chicken breast cut into cubes
1/2 cup Mozzarella/Pepper Jack Cheese Mix
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
Pat the Zucchini dry and mix with cheese
Beat the eggs and mix with Zucchini/Cheese mixture
Add in about 2 tsp Salt and 1 TBSP pepper and mix well
Add garlic powder and onion powder to taste (I like about 1 tsp each)
Cook in Oven at 400 for 10 minutes
Remove and pat excess moisture off
You can generally cook everything that goes on top of the Zucchini crust while the crust bakes.
You will saute the Pepper in about 1 tsp of olive oil (Just enough to barely cover the bottom of a 5 inch pan) cook until tender and starting to brown then set aside in a bowl
Green Onion in about 1 tsp of olive oil season with large pinch of onion powder and garlic powder. Once the onion starts becoming translucent add mushroom and cook until they start softening but before they start to sweat. Set aside in bowl
Take a large pan (approx 10 inches) put in about 2 tsp of olive oil (enough to cover bottom barely) and saute the Chicken with 2 pinches of Garlic Powder and 2 pinches of Onion Powder. Add sweet basil about 1 pinch
You want the chicken to be cooked white on the outside and almost fully cooked inside but not dry and not completely finished.
Once the crust comes out of the oven and has been patted dry, add the peppers, mushroom and onions, then the tomato and chicken. Cover with cheese & basil across the top so that it covers all the cheese on top and place in the oven again for 25 minutes at 400.
You can get about 8 small servings or 4 large servings out of this.
