Zucchini Pizza Bites

We're always looking for ways to sneak veggies into our meals.  We have found that 
zucchini is stealth.  And what better way to disguise it than as Pizza?  

All you'll need is:
1 or 2 medium size zucchini
1T olive oil for brushing
About 1C Pizza sauce 
1/2 C (or more) grated parmesan cheese
Pepperoni (or any other pizza topping of your choice)
Shredded Mozzarella cheese

Wash the zucchini and slice them into rounds
Lightly brush each round with a little olive oil and toss it on the grill. 
Cook for about a minute on each side
I used my new grill pan today. =) (Thank you MIL!) 

 Once you see some nice grill mark on each side, transfer the 
slices to a baking sheet,foil-lined for easy clean up.   
Spoon a little pizza sauce on each slice and sprinkle with Parmesan
Add a pepperoni, a little sprinkle of shredded mozzarella 
(and maybe even an extra sprinkle of parmesan, just for good luck), 
and pop it in the oven under the broiler until the cheese is golden and bubbly! 

*CAUTION: These little guys know how to hold their heat!! Be careful...
even when you think they've cooled, they might surprise you!  

*Thank you Kalyn @ KalynsKitchen.com for this yummy recipe!

  1. I've seen these on Pinterest and have been wanting to try them. We eat something similar without the pepperoni, but pepperoni would be so tasty!
