Zucchini Pizza Boats

One of Torry’s patients sent him home with zucchini fresh out of their garden!!! I was so happy when he walked in the door with them because I had been eyeing this idea for dinner from the Proud Italian Cook… I worked with what I had around the kitchen and it turned out really tasty!!

Preheat oven to 350F…

Start by cutting the zucchini in half lengthwise … they suggest trimming a little off of the bottom side so it’s sits in the pan better…

Using a spoon, hollow out the middle slightly by removing the seeds…

Spread 1 to 2 teaspoons of pizza sauce across the tops…

Layer turkey pepperoni & tomato (these are the toppings I had on hand, there are numerous possibilities!)

Before adding the cheese, bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Then add the cheese and put under the broiler for about a minute until the cheese melts…

 

They were REALLY good!!! Another great way to get it some veggies!
