Zucchini Pizza Boats
Pinterest is where the home of all the recipes are located, swear. I’ve heard about these a while ago but I haven’t given them a try until yesterday. I really wanted some pizza for a while now and I didn’t want to buy a pie or even a slice, I wanted to find a way to make my own pizza, a healthier version and that I did.
Garlic (I used powdered garlic)
Salt and pepper
Pasta sauce (I used classico tomato and basil)
shredded mozzarella cheese
shredded parmesan cheese
Mini pepperoni slices
I didn’t follow the measurements for the recipe and I kind just winged it to my liking and to how much I felt like cooking that point.
I started of with three medium sized zucchini, cutting both ends off and then cutting them in half. I poured a ¼ cup of olive oil and some powered garlic in a mixing cup and spread that on the tops of the zucchini after I added some salt and pepper on the tops of that.
Afterwards I added the pasta sauce on top.
Depending on how much cheese you want on each zucchini is the amount you put. I wanted a decent amount but also remembered that two cheeses needed to be added so I made sure I left room for the mozzarella and parmesan cheese to both fit on the zucchini.
Next I added the pepperoni, just enough to cover the zucchini. No special amount, so some slices have four and others have three. Again, add as much or as little as you like.
Stick them in the oven for about 12 – 18 minutes at 400 degrees. I originally was going with 15 but I didn’t set my alarm and I ended up over cooking them just a tad, but it was fine. When you take them out of the oven sprinkle some oregano on top and let them cool down before you eat. Then, enjoy.
So these came out very well, I must say and a much better alternative than eating regular pizza. I ate a zucchini and a half yesterday and felt no type of guilt what so ever, I just knew I was getting my vegetable intake in and that was that.
Are you going to try these? Do you have any cool and unique recipes? I would love to know. Also, if you do try these, I want to check it out.
