{zucchini} pizza bites

It's my first year to grow zucchini in my garden. First year, success! Well, except the fact I didn't realize how MASSIVE the plant size becomes. Next year I will plant in a better location. It's time to focus on ways to use this free produce! First up....{zucchini} pizza bites.

These were BEYOND simple to make and Oh So delicious and nutritious. Give them a try for yourself.  Especially if you are wanting pizza and not the gluten that comes with most crust.

This makes a great option for Meatless Mondays!

 When the heavenly smell of pizza filled the house, my 4 year old asked to try one. Then two. Then THREE. Then, MORE MORE MORE! I didn't even wait to feed them to him for dinner because I was so shocked and supportive he was eating a vegetable!

Call the vegetable people and let them know this great news! Quick! Let's celebrate...Pizza Bites for everyone!

{zucchini} pizza bites

  • One or two zucchini (slice in 1/4inch thick circles)
  • Organic Pizza Sauce (Or you can use Mama's Pizza Sauce)
  • Freshly grated Mozzarella Cheese (I do NOT used bagged cheese, they are loaded with preservatives)
1) Set the oven to Broil (high)
2) Spray sliced zucchini rounds with Olive Oil on both sides and place on oven pan (If you have a slotted grill pan that would work even better).
3) Broil on high for 2-3 minutes on first side
4) Turn them and repeat for another 2-3 minutes
5) Remove from oven and top with sauce and cheese.
6) Put back in oven and broil an additional 2-3 minutes (keeping close eye as to not to burn the cheese)
7) Let cool for a few minutes. Enjoy!

NOTE: Chop tiny bites of any fresh veggies or olives you love and add them as well. You could add fresh mozzarella and Pecorino Romano cheese like I do for my pizza.
