Zucchini Pizza (Easy Recipes)

This is the point in the summer when our garden is literally exploding with zucchini and summer squash. I decided this year to only plant zucchini, because I didn't want to throw any away. Last year we actually grew more than we could giveaway and consume!  I figured zucchini was a safe bet, because with extras, I can grate it, freeze it, bake with it (you get the idea). 

Last week, when I wasn't sure what to make for dinner, and I returned from the garden with a bounty of fresh zucchini, tomatoes and herbs, I decided to make zucchini pizza. I made a lot of them and enjoyed them for the better part of the week! 
Ingredients
4 medium zucchini
1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced
¼ red onion, sliced
¼ cup pepperoni, sliced 
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
¼ cup feta
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise and scoop out the inside seeds.
  • To help them lay flat on the pan, you can also cut a piece off the bottom of the “boat” to create a flat surface.
  • Spread a light layer of tomatoes (about 1 tablespoon) inside each zucchini
  • Top with onions and pepperoni
  • Bake for 20–25 minutes, until zucchini is tender (but not mushy).
  • Top with basil and serve.


These are fresh, healthy and good. Everyone enjoyed them, and they definitely incorporated the traditional pizza flavors, which helped!  

What are you doing with your zucchini these days?

  1. I was just thinking about zucchini boats. These pizzas look so fresh and tasty!! We finally planted a few tomato and jalapeno plants (on clearance) in our small veggie garden.

  2. Yum! I haven't ever tried this before - good idea! I love to make zucchini crust for pizza - it is egg/flour/zucchini and probably something else like baking powder or baking soda :-)
