Sliced Zucchini Pizza Bites



I yo-yo my dieting habits and it is so hard in summer when parties are everywhere, I even like to take these to one so I don't load up on the burgers, fries, and other picnic items that tempt me.


Keep these simple, sometimes I just add Pecorino Romano and no mozzarella, or a slice of provolone on each one you can top these with whatever you like, and if you're not dieting, then make the zucchini everything bites.


Guilt-free foods are usually boring but these pizza bites are delicious and will be inspiring in flavor when you hate dieting.

A little appetizer with loads of flavor just like pizza using zucchini slices

Ingredients

  • zucchini slices cut into 2-inch thick slices (as many as you will need for your party I usually use 2 large sliced or snack)
  • 1 can of pizza tomato sauce
  • 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese or provolone
  • 1 container rated Cheese Pecorino Romano or Parmesan
  • salt, pepper
  • freshly chopped oregano, basil, parsley, or use dried
  • Cooking spray oil or olive oil
  • parchment paper and a baking sheet

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet and spray it with cooking oil.
  3. Wash and slice the zucchini into thick 2 to 3-inch slices and blot dry ( I like to peel the skin off randomly and leave some green on the disc-sized rounds).
  4. Place the cut zucchini sliced on the baking sheet.
  5. Spoon pizza sauce using a tablespoon evenly on top of each slice of zucchini (depending on the size of them use more or less sauce).
  6. Add any kinds of optional topping suggestions in the notes below on top.
  7. Sprinkle with grated cheese and all seasonings evenly over the tops of each one.
  8. Top each one with shredded cheese.
  9. Spray the tops with more cooking oil spray.
  10. Bake at 400 degrees until the cheese browns around 10 to 15 minutes.
  11. These can also be put in the air fryer single not stacked at 400 degrees for 5 minutes.
