Zucchini Pizza Bites Recipe

Makes about 24-30 bites

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 organic zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch thick rounds
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/3 cup marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup finely grated mozzarella (organic dairy is always best!)
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

Note: I say it’s OK to use pre-made seasonings and sauces … they will save you time.  Just ensure they are sugar-free and not loaded with additives. Raw and organic are always preferred.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to broil.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Working in batches, add zucchini and cook, flipping once, until golden, about 1-2 minutes on each side; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Place zucchini rounds onto a large baking sheet. Top each zucchini round with marinara, mozzarella.
  4. Place into oven and cook until the cheese has melted, about 1-2 minutes.
  5. Serve immediately, sprinkled with Italian seasoning, if desired.
