Zucchini Pepperoni Pizza
The little oven baked zucchini pizza rounds taste exactly like little pizzas. I usually try and use pepperoni but any cooked mea will definitely work.
I have used chopped or sliced bacon and sausage.
With bacon I just cut off a slice that is a little larger than my zucchini slices because as you know bacon shrinks as it cooks. As you might expect, the bacon tastes wonderful too.
If I am using sausages I buy the large sausages and cook them in the oven or skillet, usually they are so easy to fry. Then I slice them and brown each side.
After each side is browned a little I place one on top of each cheese covered zucchini slice, instead of the pepperoni. We have used Italian and honey garlic sausages and both tasted terrific.
Just throwing out some ideas for you to consider trying. I always figure the more options the better!
Oven Baked Zucchini Pizza Bites
These zucchini pizza bites are delicious, right out of the oven, after they have been under the broiler for a minute or two. No matter which toppings you add, the broiler always adds a nice color.
My husband always broils these longer than I do! He loves the pepperoni on these Easy Zucchini Pizza Bites to be more well done so you will just have to broil them until the pepperoni, bacon or sausage is done just the way you like them!
Pizza Rounds Recipe
These super simple pizza rounds are so inexpensive to make that my husband calls them thrifty or frugal snacks. Even though we grow zucchinis, they are still cheap to purchase, all things considered.
My husband loves to save money and after all these years he has been rubbing off on me, slowly but surely. He would be so happy to hear that.
After all these years even I see the changes in myself. He brings balance in my life and without him I would likely live in a lot more debt, just like I did before him.
Unnecessary purchases filling my credit cards. I used to be terrible but now I am so different I actually impress myself. I have self control and I actually ask myself if I really need something before I buy it.
Sorry, I will get back to these mouthwatering pizza rounds!
Keto Low Carb Zucchini Recipe
These easy low carb zucchini pizza bites are amazing because they are healthy too, all things considered. My friend, who has been keto for years loves these and our Easy Zucchini Pizza Boats.
She eats them as she likes them and switches up her toppings all of the time.
In our house we are eating less and less bread. These little bites are perfect for any time. My husband and I eat these while watching a movie even.
It's so easy to just stick a fork in one piece and put it right inside your mouth.
Such an amazing flavor explosion. It always makes me want another one.
I love eating something that is low carb that tastes great so I don't feel like I am missing something. You know what I mean? These little suckers fit that bill!
There are times when my zucchini slice is just too big to fit in my mouth in one shot. That is when a sharp knife comes in handy!
