Welcome! Care for a Zucchini Pizza Mini? I thought an appetizer would be a good way to kick off this blog party.
Easy, quick, and healthy compared to the pizzeria version, especially if you’re in the habit of late night pizza eating. Okay, I know, I know, I won’t compare, but this snack as an occasional substitute is a healthy option. Maximize Health, Maximize Life – add Zucchini Pizza Minis.
Zucchini Pizza Minis
2 small zucchinis (made a baking sheet full)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup pasta or pizza sauce
1/3 cup shredded mozzarella
1-2 tablespoons parmesan cheese (opt.)
Italian Seasoning, oregano, basil (fresh or dried) and/or any other preferred spices
Cut zucchini into bite-size rounds, about 1/2″ thick. (I use organic because zucchini is often genetically modified.)
Set oven on Broil
Heat olive oil in skillet over medium heat. Cook zucchini in batches, 1 -2 minutes per side. Transfer to baking sheet.
Spoon a small amount of pasta or pizza sauce onto center of each round. Smooth out to cover top.
Sprinkle parmesan and mozzarella over sauce.
Broil 1-2 minutes or until cheese melts.
Sprinkle with spices of choice.
Enjoy! Thanks for coming!
