I have been wanting to make these pizza bites ever since my friend Aubrey told me how yummy and easy they were! I kept suggesting them for meals and J didn’t seem super into them. I finally just decided I was going to make them one night and if he didn’t want them he could make a smoothie (he’s super into those these days). I was so excited and got all my stuff out and even took a photo of the ingredients only to discover I had bought.. CUCUMBERS. haha #epicfail. So the next time I went to the grocery store I TRIPLE checked to make sure I was buying zucchini!
Here are all the ingredients you need:
Pizza sauce- save a little bit of marinara from some spaghetti I used earlier in the week
Italian seasoning- I chose basil
Pepperoni- I always buy turkey peps because I honestly can’t tell a difference and its healthier.
My first of many recipes on this blog! Like I mentioned in my anniversary post I learned how to cook this past year and became comfortable in the kitchen. I do not claim to be some awesome chef I just hope I can help some others learn to cook some easy simple things. If you are like me, I see things on Pinterest and I like to see step by step pictures so I hope these are helpful.
Heres the original recipe and Heres mine:
Zucchini Pizza Bites
2 Medium- large zucchinis
1/4 cup marinara sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup pepperonis chopped into fourths, optional
Basil for sprinkling, optional
Cut zucchinis into thin rounds. Then spray with olive oil on both side and lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper. Line a baking sheet with foil and broil the zucchinis for two and a half minutes on each side. Then top with sauce, cheese and topppings. Put baking sheet back into broiler for 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted, then top with basil. Serve warm.
