It is always so important to rinse your veggies off before you start to cut!
Try your best to slice the zucchini evenly but don't worry if it's not! It will taste delicious regardless.
Use a baking sheet to lay out your zucchini slices!
Mix together your olive oil and garlic to spread on your zucchini slices! I just used my fingers to lightly brush the mixture onto my zucchini slices.
Next up, the pizza sauce! Classico is my favorite brand to use for pizza sauce. Yummm!
Add your toppings, and bake in the oven for about 12-18!
Enjoy your easy and delicious zucchini pizzas!
- 6 small zucchini (2 1/2 lbs)
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, finely minced
- 1 cup marinara sauce
- 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (6 oz)
- 1/3 cup finely shredded parmesan cheese (1.4 oz)
- 1/2 cup mini pepperoni slices
- 2 Tbsp chopped fresh oregano
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a
Silpat liner, set aside.
Cut each zucchini into halves through the length (if they don't lie flat trim a thin portion from
bottoms so that they will lie mostly flat. I only had to do this with one of them). Pat insides dry
with paper towels (cut portion). Align on prepared baking sheet. In a bowl, stir together olive oil
and garlic then brush lightly over tops of zucchini. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste then
brush a slightly heaping 1 Tbsp marinara sauce over each zucchini, leaving a small rim near
edges uncoated. Sprinkle tops evenly with mozzarella cheese then with parmesan cheese. Top
with pepperoni slices (placing them more near centers as the cheese will melt and spread).
Bake in preheated oven 12 18 minutes (bake time will vary depending on how thick your
zucchini are and how crisp/tender you want them).
Remove from oven and sprinkle with chopped fresh oregano. Serve warm
