Gluten Free Zucchini Pie

This very easy (and gluten free!) zucchini pie is tasty, healthy, and can make a quick lunch or dinner. It freezes very well, so you can make a big one, cut it in individual portions and save it in the freezer to take to work.
We've been making this dough for a while now and it comes out very well. It doesn't require much work, and can be easily done on a food processor if you find it faster.

Ingredients:

Gluten free savory pie dough:
(these proportions will make 2 discs -you'll see that in the video we only did half, and use cheese instead of a dough top to cover it)

  • 2 cups of gluten-free flour mix
  • 1 teaspoon xantan ghum
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • salt and pepper
Zucchini filling:
  • zucchinis: depending on their size, approximately 4 to 6 zucchinis for a regular sized pie
  • 1 onion or a bunch of green onions
  • 1 or 2 shallots
  • 2 eggs
  • mozzarella cheese
  • half cup Greek yogurt
  • Salt and pepper
Some additional tips:

  • It's better to steam the zucchinis rather than boiling them, as they tend to produce a lot of water and the dough can get soggy.
  • If you can, try to take the pie out of the pan right after you take it out of the oven and place it on a wooden tray. It will prevent the dough from getting soggy and it really makes a difference! (But only try it if you have pie pans with removable bottom)
  • If you want a richer pie, replace the Greek yogurt with heavy cream or cream cheese.

    5. Hi, Just found your blog through face book and I"m excited to see what you have to offer. We are both gluten and casein free in our home because my oldest son is autistic and we use a GFCF diet to help recover him. I blog about that journey, and post a few GFCF recipes too. When you get a chance drop by http://matthewspuzzle.blogspot.com and I'm going to keep watching you. I always need new recipes and delicious food. Thanks for taking the time to write about what you are doing!
