Zucchini Pizza Bites

A quick little healthy meal or snack for you when you are craving pizza. My wife requested these a couple of weeks ago, and she was very happy with how they turned out. Full disclosure on my part, yup, I will take regular pizza over these any day. But if you are looking for that healthier and or gluten free alternative, give these a shot.

The best thing about these is you really don’t even need a recipe. After you crisp them up a little, top with whatever floats your boat that day. We had mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, and jarred pizza sauce on hand, so that is what I used. I used one zucchini on this batch as it was only my wife eating them that night. This picture was half of what it made.

1-2 zucchini, sliced in 1/4 to 1/2 inch slices

Salt and pepper

pizza sauce

mozzarella cheese, shredded

pepperoni, diced


Preheat your oven on the broiler setting. Sprinkle both sides of the zucchini slices lightly with salt and pepper. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet. Broil for 2-3 minutes, flip, and repeat on the underside. Remove from the over, and layer, sauce, cheese, and pepperoni pieces on each slice of zucchini. Place back under the broiler for 1-2 minutes, or until cheese is starting to melt.
