Things in which I find joy include taking a fairly well known “un-healthy” food and turning it into something down right nutritious and delicious. Kinda like this alfredo pasta, or this buffalo chicken. Pizza is no different. I mean let’s be real, it’s melted cheese on top of some red sauce and a circular piece of dough - nothing super nutritious about that. HOWEVER, when you put some healthy marinara sauce on top of a slice of zucchini topped with mozzarella cheese (I used a dairy-free cheese but you do you), roasted tomatoes, and fresh parsley it’s a PIZZA PARTY IN YOUR MOUTH!!

Zucchini Pizza Bites

Ingredients

  • 2 large zucchini

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil (divided into Tablespoons)

  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes

  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce

  • 1/3 cup mozzarella cheese (I used a dairy-free but you can use really any kind you want - goat, feta, etc.)

  • 2 Tbsp parsley (chopped)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F

  2. Slice zucchini into 1/4 inch circles, place on baking sheet, and drizzle with 1 Tbsp olive oil

  3. Bake for 5 minutes (this is to soften the zucchini up a bit)

  4. While the zucchini is baking, heat the other 1 Tbsp olive oil in a skillet and saute tomatoes until soft

  5. Spoon marinara sauce over each zucchini bites (~1/2 Tbsp each), crumble cheese of choice over top, then add 1-2 tomatoes on each bite and roast for another 15-20 minutes until cheese is melted

  6. Top with fresh parsley and dig in!

  7. Zucchini bites will last in the fridge in an air tight container for 3-5 days.
