Zucchini Pizza Bites Recipe [“I wanted to eat pizza, but instead I ate this.”]

I catch myself starting so many blog posts and Instagram posts that way lately! Honestly, the local gluten-free pizza joint has the best GF pizza. If I could only pick one weakness food, that would be it.

 

 

But alas, I will not. I had a delicious lunch today making zucchini pizza bites, and I must share!

 

Recipe: Zucchini Pizza Bites 

Ingredients: 

  • As much zucchini as you’d like (I make one full zucchini, chopped)
  • marinara sauce; pizza sauce; pasta sauce
  • Shredded cheese, your choice (I use low-fat mozzarella)

 

Directions: 

  • Wash and cut zucchini into 1/4-inch slices to make circular pieces.
  • Sauté zucchini pieces in a bit of olive oil for about 2 minutes on each side (enough to soften them and/or make a small crust).
  • Place zucchini slices on a foiled pan. Put pasta sauce on zucchini slices with a spoon.

  • Place in oven on broiler setting for 3-5 minutes.
  • Remove, and eat before they even cool (resulting in immediate gratification, a burned tongue and a happy self).

    • I’d imagine that they can! I’m usually too hungry to wait and brown them to make a crust, but yes, they could make a crust. The sauce on top makes the top a bit soft, though.
