It’s the summertime onslaught of zucchini already and I am fighting the good fight! I’ve made Italian Zucchini Boats and Taco Zucchini Boats so this year I decided to try Pizza Zucchini Boats and they were a hit!
1 – 2 (14 oz each) jars pizza sauce
5 – 6 zucchini, depending on size
1 package small pepperoni slices
1 package precooked bacon crumbles
1 – 2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 Preheat oven to 400.
2 Spread about 1 cup of pizza sauce in bottom of 9 x 13″ pan.
3 Cut ends off zucchini, then cut in half then slice the halves lengthwise. Using a spoon or melon baller, make a trough down the middle of each zucchini piece. Place zucchini pieces in pan, skin side down, trough side up. Place a small spoonful of pizza sauce into each zucchini piece.
4 Sprinkle bacon into each zucchini trough followed by several pieces of pepperoni and then sprinkle with Mozzarella.
5 6 Bake 30 – 40 minutes or until a fork pierces the zucchini easily.
These look delcious, and much healthier than my usual pizza! Over here we call them courgettes. http://www.feedingthekat.com
Thanks for stopping by and yes, a few less calories and a good way to get a pizza fix. Courgettes sounds like a very pretty word for zucchini. Where is over here?
