This recipe is an oldie, but goodie! I had a big zucchini that needed using up and I was sooo in the mood for these yummy (and guiltless) zucchini pizza bites!! It is a perfect way to use up all the zucchini in your garden and satisfy your craving for pizza in a low-carb way.
I make these all the time, sometimes for lunch or as snack. Even my husband thinks they are pretty darn good! They also happen to be gluten-free, and perfect for meatless Mondays. Of course, you could add some leftover sausage, pepperoni, basil, or whatever you like on your pizza. If you haven’t tried these yet, they are a must while zucchini is in season!
My zucchini was very large. If your zucchini is smaller, you can cut them on an angle for large ovals.

Zucchini pizza bites
• 4 slices large zucchini 1/4" thick (or 1 medium zucchini cut on diagnal)
• olive oil spray (I used my Misto)
• salt and pepper
• 2 tbsp quick marinara sauce
• 1/4 cup shredded part skim mozzarella
Cut zucchini about 1/4 inch thick. Spray both side lightly with oil and season with salt and pepper. Broil or grill the zucchini for about 2 minute on each side.
Top with sauce and cheese and broil for an additional minute or two. (Careful not to burn cheese)
