Zucchini Pizza Bites
- 1-3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2-3 medium zucchinis, cut into 1/4 inch slices
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup pizza sauce or marinara sauce
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 20 approximately pepperoni, sliced, mini or regular
- 1 tablespoon oregano or Italian seasoning
In a medium sized bowl toss zucchini slices in olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss and sprinkle with more salt and pepper.
Broil or sauté the zucchini slices until just tender, about 2 minutes per side.
Preheat your oven to broil. Prepare a baking sheet with tinfoil and cooking spray. Place tender zucchini slices on your prepared baking sheet, as evenly spaced apart as possible.
Top each slice with sauce, a pinch of oregano or italian seasoning if desired, cheese and then a pepperoni slice.
Broil until the cheese has melted and the pepperoni is browned, just a few minutes. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
