In a large bowl combine zucchini, garlic, oil, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, fennel seed, salt and pepper. Toss or stir well making sure zucchini is well coated with all of the ingredients.
Spread half of the sauce evenly on the pizza(add more if you like it saucy). Evenly arrange the zucchini slices on the sauce. Top the zucchini with the mozzarella. Place in a preheated oven for 10-15 minutes until the cheese is melted and slightly browned.
*use the slice side of a box grater, a mandoline, or your food processor for thin even slices.
**if you make your own dough increase the cooking time to 25-30 minutes.
