Zucchini Pie Tips
- You’ll need ten ounces (about two cups from two or three zucchini) of zucchini before the liquid is squeezed out.
- To save time shredding the zucchini, just throw it in the food processor.
- It’s super important to get all the liquid out of the zucchini before making the pie. Put the zucchini in a strainer over a bowl and sprinkle with a little salt. Let sit for about 15 minutes to draw out the liquid. Then, put the zucchini in a cheesecloth or dish towel, and give it a good squeeze to get out all the moisture.
You can refrigerate the zucchini pie for up to four days. Leftovers are great reheated for lunch.
To freeze any leftovers, wrap tightly with plastic and store in the freezer for up to three months. To reheat, thaw overnight in the refrigerator and heat in the oven or microwave.
- If you don’t have any white whole wheat flour, you can use all purpose or wheat flour.
- To make a gluten-free zucchini pie, swap the flour for a gluten-free blend, such as Cup4Cup.
- Swap the mozzarella for Swiss or Asiago and the Parmesan for Pecorino Romano or feta.
- If you don’t have shallots, use red or yellow onions, and if no chives, sub with green onions.
- Flavor the pie with dry or fresh herbs like basil or oregano.
- Season with garlic powder or fresh garlic.
- Add other vegetables like bell pepper, artichoke hearts, or broccoli to switch up the flavors.
- Add grilled chicken to make it even more filling.
- If you don’t have a pie dish, bake the zucchini pie recipe in a 9” x 9” pan.
- You can double the recipe and bake in a 9” x 13” baking dish, or for smaller servings, bake the zucchini mixture in a muffin tin. Just make sure to adjust the baking time.

I made this recipe as written. Very easy and tasty! Will definitely make again.
I have made this multiple times and everyone loves it. It works very well cut into wedges on a big platter with baby tomatoes, cucumber and rocket with some prosciutto on the side, so handy if you have both vegetarians and meat eaters. I have also added bacon with the zucchini which is delicious as well.
Do you weigh the zucchini before or after squeezing out the water?
I made this yesterday and my husband and I flipped over it. I will be making again and again!
It was so easy and so delicious! I had a hard time not eating it up. Was looking for a new way to do zucchini and this was something I can do and have for snack, lunch or dinner! Love it.
