Ingredients
  

  • one zucchini cut lengthwise
  • pizza sauce I love rao’s
  • ½ cup grated mozzarella any cheese you like works
  • 8 pepperoni slices you can use turkey pepperoni or ham as well

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat the oven to 400F.
  • Wash and cut the zucchini in half lengthwise. With a small spoon or melon baller, scoop the inside. Please take a look at my notes as I give you suggestions for the zucchini pulp.
  • Now that you have two boats, you can fill them with pizza sauce, mozzarella, and pepperoni.
  • I don’t add more salt as everything is salty enough for me.
  • Bake on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for 15-20 minutes depending on the oven and enjoy.

Notes

Please note that these are to be enjoyed right away. You can absolutely reheat them later on but they are best served out of the oven when the cheese is nice and melted.
Feel free to use any toppings you like. Air-fry at 400F until golden and melted but check on them every few minutes. I don’t think freezing will work as zucchini hold a lot of water but let me know if you try.
You can use the zucchini pulp for smoothies, in soups, even tossed in boiling water with potatoes for when you make mashed potatoes. Zucchini are so mild so you won’t be able to taste them.
