Man, I love pizza - I love all the different forms it can come in, the different flavors and toppings it can have - give me all the pizza!
These Zucchini Pizza Bites are totally guilt-free if you're a pizza lover, but can't do the carbs! Zucchini creates a yummy base for some sauce, cheese and pepperoni - feel free to add whatever other toppings you like to these bite-sized goodies!
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch thick rounds
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 1/3 cup marinara sauce
- 1/2 cup finely grated mozzarella
- 1/4 cup pepperoni minis
- 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
Preheat oven to broil.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Working in batches, add zucchini and cook, flipping once, until golden, about 1-2 minutes on each side; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Place zucchini rounds onto a large baking sheet. Top each zucchini round with marinara, mozzarella and pepperoni minis.
Place into oven and cook until the cheese has melted, about 1-2 minutes.
Serve immediately, sprinkled with Italian seasoning, if desired.
