Sheet-Pan Zucchini Pizza

Fresh zucchini and lemon slices top this sheet-pan pizza. Whole lemon slices add bright flavor from the skin and rind as well as acidity from the flesh. Feta and fresh mozzarella cheese add a savory note and add balance to the rest of the flavors.

  • 1 (8-ounce) zucchini, thinly sliced crosswise (2 cups)

  • teaspoon salt

  • 1 pound whole-wheat pizza dough, at room temperature

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided

  • 4 ounces fresh ovolini mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced

  • 1 small thin-skinned lemon, ends trimmed, seeded and very thinly sliced

  • ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese

  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil leaves


  1. Place a large rimmed baking sheet in cold oven; preheat to 450°F.

  2. Toss zucchini and salt in a large colander set over a large bowl; let stand for about 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, stretch pizza dough into a 15-by-10-inch rectangle on a large cutting board covered with parchment paper. Brush the dough evenly with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

  4. Pat the zucchini dry (discard liquid). Top the dough evenly with mozzarella slices, lemon slices, zucchini slices, feta, garlic and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Remove the hot baking sheet from the oven. Quickly slide the parchment paper and pizza onto the baking sheet. Bake at 450°F until the crust is browned and the cheese is melted, 12 to 13 minutes. Sprinkle with basil.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
