This savoury pie using convenient store-bought pizza dough as a base resembles a cross between quiche and pizza. Salting the zucchini removes the excess liquid and intensifies the taste, making it a perfect partner for sausage and sharp Canadian Cheddar cheese.

  • Portion size 8 servings



Shape pizza dough into ball; let rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, with coarse grater, shred zucchini; toss with salt and let stand for 10 to 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, in skillet, fry sausage meat over medium heat, breaking up with fork, until lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Transfer to bowl; let cool.

Place zucchini in colander and squeeze to drain liquid; add to sausage mixture. Add onions and Cheddar cheese. Beat egg with sour cream; mix into sausage mixture.

Stretch dough to fit 16- x 12-inch (40 x 30 cm) rimmed baking sheet. Spread sausage mixture over dough. Bake in bottom third of 400°F (200°C) oven until topping and bottom of crust are golden, about 40 minutes.

Makes 6 to 8 servings.
