Zucchini Pizza Bites

We made some Zucchini Pizza Bites today using our first zucchini from the garden. 

    Zucchini Pizza Bites

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 medium zucchini
  • pizza sauce
  • fresh oregano (or dried)
  • shredded mozzarella cheese
  • shredded parmesan cheese
  • pepperoni
  • onions (optional)

What You’ll Do:

  1. Preheat broiler; set rack in the middle.
  2. Trim ends on zucchini and cut into diagonal slices.
  3. Spread a teaspoon of sauce over each zucchini slice and sprinkle on some fresh chopped oregano.   Top each zucchini slice with cheeses.  Add pepperoni and onions, if desired.
  4. Broil about 3 minutes or until cheese is melted.

My kids tolerate zucchini, it’s definitely not their favorite.  I on the other hand LOVE zucchini, so guess who planted lots of it in the garden this year? 

The verdict ~ add some sauce, cheese and pepperoni and the kids have decided that they like zucchini after all.  Do you have a favorite zucchini recipe?

yum!! My Zucchini plants - no go again this year :( We love to grill it in tinfoil packet w/ a dab of butter and tons of seasoning. Sammy will eat it up that way because its nice and tender.

What a fun healthy way to make pizzas! Great idea! I may try this sometime. And my favorite zucchini recipe is zucchini bread, naturally :)

Yum, what a great summer recipe. Not too heavy, lots of flavor, not too high prep.

Sounds wonderful! Bummer this year we didn't plant zucchini! :-{

Our garden is a little behind yours (I think "behind" is the theme of my life sometimes!). :) But when ours ripens, I definitely want to try this!

As far as my favorite zucchini recipe, it would have to be a casserole recipe from Esther Shank's Mennonite cookbook. I'm looking forward to making that again this summer!

What an ingenious idea! I love zucchini too. My kids also only tolerate it, but they love zookies (zucchini cookies)!
