Cheesy Savory Zucchini Pie

I've been wanting to make this Zucchini Cheese Pie from one of my baking books and finally remembered to pick up some zucchini. I LOVE this savory and cheesy recipe! I know most people think of sweet Zucchini Bread but this is definitely worth a try. It almost tastes like a Quiche but without the crust and not so many eggs. Great for any time of the day!


1 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 c coarsely shredded unpeeled zucchini
1/4 c plain yogurt
1 c grape tomatoes, sliced in half
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg
1/4 c shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 Tbsp chopped fresh basil


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 9-inch round cake pan with cooking spray.

2. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. In another bowl, stir together the zucchini, yogurt and Parmesan. Add to flour mixture and stir just until dry ingredients are moistened.

3. Spread batter in prepared pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Sprinkle with Mozzarella and bake an additional 2-3 minutes until cheese is melted.

4. Let cool for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with basil before slicing.
