For those of you that know our family well, you know that we LOVE pizza.
Up until I started my journey to getting healthy in 2013, we used to have a pizza night every single Sunday evening after church. We still enjoy pizza now, but we prepare it very differently than we used to.
Some of my friends LOVE almond flour pizza dough and cauliflower pizza crust, and I plan to try experimenting with those soon. We LOVE our flatbread pizzas, but tonight we tried zucchini pizza bites and they were delicious!
Here’s the simple recipe.
Wash and dry your zucchini. I used four medium sized ones I found at Walmart.
Cut them into slices about 1/2 an inch thick or to your personal preference and arrange on a baking sheet that you have sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
Crank up your broiler to high and while it’s warming up, sprinkle your slices with salt, pepper, garlic powder and spray them with olive oil.
Put under the broiler for around 2 minutes then take out and flip.
Repeat the same seasonings and then put back under the broiler for an additional 2-3 minutes.
Take them out of the oven and top with your sauce, a sprinkle of cheese and any other toppings that you desire. I used a spaghetti sauce with ground beef that I had prepared for another meal, a light sprinkle of mozzarella and some chopped turkey pepperoni.
Pop them back into the oven under the broiler for around 2-3 minutes.
Here’s what they’ll look like:
And here’s an up close shot:
Delicious, Quick, Easy and Affordable.
The kids even tried a few!
We served it along with this.
Hope you enjoy!
