Zucchini Pizza Boats Recipe!

Ladies and gentlemen, start your zucchinis!!!! Is that not a thing? Well, I think it should be...because zucchinis are in season and I am ready to EAT EAT EAT! I have been seeing these zucchini pizzas all over Pinterest and other foodie sites and I was like, "I wanna see the deal about these things."

So I made up this recipe. And it turned out pretty great if you ask me! If you ask my husband, this was an insult to pizza. Seriously. He tried it though. I think he even liked it.  But does it replace pizza? Not in his book.

Now, I want to take a moment to discuss that fact because my husband may be onto something there....does it replace pizza? Never. However, would this make a wonderful side dish? Heck to the yes! Also? These make a fantastic appetizer because you can whip them up in the a snap!

I didn't do step by step photos on this one because it's so seriously easy that your mind will be blown. 

 One zucchini, cut in half, topped with a little sauce, a little mozzarella  cheese, and then, if you like, a pepperoni or two. Or three. Hehe. 

Now, pop these suckers into the oven on 450 degrees and bake them for 15 minutes. 

Don't they look amazing?!?!?! I really enjoyed this. If you want, you can serve them with extra sauce for dippin'. 

I ate it with a fork and knife...because it's still zucchini. 

Zucchini Pizza Boats 

Time: 15 minutes | Makes: 2 boats | Difficulty: Easy 

You Will Need: 

1 zucchini 
A couple tablespoons pizza sauce
About a handful of mozzarella cheese
Pepperoni, if desired (or really any topping that suits your fancy!) 


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. 

Cut your zucchini in half, lengthwise. (get rid of those pesky ends, 'cause you won't need them, no sir!) 

Place them on a baking dish (I like my baking stones, but whatever turns you on works just great). 

Top each half with about a tablespoon of pizza sauce. Top with desired amount of cheese and then toppings. I used pepperoni. 

Bake in the 450 degree oven for 15 minutes. Allow the cheese to cool before you dig in because I burned the heck out of my mouth....I'm not very patient. I paid for this facet of my personality in mouth burns.
