This Zucchini Pizza Casserole is a fantastic zucchini beef casserole which your whole family will love! It’s so versatile too – you can easily sub in Italian sausage or ground turkey for the beef or make it vegetarian by skipping the meat and adding mushrooms, broccoli, or finely chopped cauliflower.

Place zucchini in a colander and sprinkle with salt. Let stand for 10 minutes before squeezing out excess moisture. Combine zucchini with eggs, Parmesan, and half the mozzarella and Cheddar cheeses. Transfer the mixture to a baking dish and bake. As the zucchini bakes, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Drain excess fat and add tomato sauce. Spoon over the zucchini mixture and sprinkle with the remaining cheeses. Add a sprinkle of chopped green pepper and bake until heated through.
