Zucchini Pizza Bites

A bite of pizza atop zucchini slices is the perfect low carb snack.

Nick did the keto diet last summer and when we decided to have a junk food/fried food night, I was at a loss for what to make that wasn't breaded. This was an easy pick that fit the low carb category and was relatively inexpensive to make. I love zucchini, so I was game for this recipe. No, these aren't bagel bites, however, they are still delicious little pizza treats.

What you need:
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch thick rounds
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/3 cup marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup mini pepperonis
  • 1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning
  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Working in batches, cook zucchini 1 to 2 minutes on each side.
  2. Then place rounds on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Top each zucchini round with marinara, mozzarella, and mini pepperoni.
  4. Place into oven and broil until cheese has melted, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Immediately top with Italian seasoning and serve.
Recipe from Damn Delicious

This Grilled Lemon Garlic Zucchini from Damn Delicious is a side dish high up on my to-make list because you cannot go wrong with grilled zucchini. One of my favorite stuffed zucchini recipes is this Bolognese Stuffed Zucchini with Pesto.
