About this recipe
Honestly, this might be one of my favorite Healthyish recipes of all time. Zucchini is in season and it tastes so great with the light flaky crust and salty cheese. Enjoy this zucchini pie recipe alongside my sour cream coffee cake loaf or my protein packed egg muffins for the perfect brunch menu.
When prepping the zucchini be sure to use a mandoline. This tool will ensure that all of the zucchini is the same thickness. You will want the zucchini to be about 1/8 inch thick. Once all of the zucchini is sliced add it to a paper towel to press out any excess moisture.
Add the zucchini to the saute pan with the butter, onions, spices and garlic. Simmer for 10 minutes only. You do not want the zucchini to get too soft or it will be mushy once it bakes. Let the zucchini mixture cool down before you combine it with the eggs and cheese. Otherwise, the hot veggies could cook the egg and it will change the texture of this dish.
If the crust begins to get to brown when baking, simply cover the crust with foil, leaving the center exposed. This will stop the browning and allow the rest of the dish to continue cooking.
Store any leftovers in the refrigerator for three to four days. Reheat in the microwave until heated through. This recipe makes 8-9 slices. Please see below for the nutritional information.
Healthyish Zucchini Pie
- 1 tube Crescent Rolls, 8 pack

- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Grab a 10-inch glass pie dish and line it with the crescent rolls. No need to grease the dish. Set aside.

This recipe is AMAZING! My kitchen smells amazing, the pie looks beautiful (even with my amateur chef skills, ha!), and it tastes even better than it smells/looks. Definitely a keeper. Thank you for sharing!

Easy recipe to follow, simple ingredients, and full of flavor! I spiraled the zucchini and still worked very well with this recipe. It’s a great alternative to the popular grill or baked goods recipes and will certainly be making it again!
Can you add ground turkey/other meat and decrease some of the zucchini?
you could try it. I haven’t tested that recipe, but it might work ok.
Looks delish! Can I cool and reheat later?
Absolutely! I covered mine in foil and refrigerated it. When reheating, use a hot skillet or microwave.
How would the cooking time change if I used traditional pie crust instead of the roll dough?
I would check the packaging. It typically gives the directions. Personally, I have not tested it this way.
Paint the crescent roll crust lightly with some Dijon mustard for some added flavor. We’ve been making a similar recipe for years and it is always a hit.
I made this in the summer and my entire family loved it. T was super simple to make as well.
This was a perfect, new way to use some of the zucchini I had in the fridge! It was super easy and tasted great! The hardest part was waiting to let it setup before diving into it, but I can totally see why you need to do this.
I will be keeping this recipe for future use!
