Ingredients

  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 1/3 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup mozzarella grated small
  • 12-15 slices pepperoni chopped (or use mini pepperoni)

Instructions

  • Preheat your broiler.
  • Use a sharp knife to cut the zucchini into rounds. You want them to be about 1/8 inch thick, and definitely no more than 1/4 inch (see photos). The thicker they are, the crisper the zucchini will be.
  • Grease a baking sheet with olive oil. Spread out the zucchini on the sheet.
  • Top each round with 1/2 or 1 teaspoon pizza sauce. Don't spread it around or it will just bake off.
  • Top with shredded mozzarella. If you are using pre-shredded mozz, use a knife to chop it a little smaller.
  • Top with chopped pepperoni.
  • Move your oven rack to the highest position. Broil the zucchini for 3-6 minutes, or until golden on top. Don't walk away! Eat hot!
