Zucchini Pizza Boats
These Zucchini Pizza Boats were so delicious I couldn’t believe it was zucchini! I wanted to make a recipe for these for some time now. After tasting these I wish I had made them sooner! Zucchini Pizza Boats are my new favorite way to make zucchini (next to my Zucchini Bread). These were so simple to make and absolutely delicious!
Wash zucchini with water.
Slice them in half lengthwise.
Using a spoon scoop out the
seeded section of each half.
Use a paper towel and pat dry
the inside of the zucchini’s.
Brush olive oil on the bottom
of an oven safe dish or pan.
Place the zucchini in the dish or
pan and brush olive oil on the
inside of the zucchini halves.
Sprinkle the zucchini with the salt,
pepper and garlic powder.
Place the diced tomato on the zucchini.
Sprinkle the zucchini with the freshly
grated parmesan cheese and
then the mozzarella cheese.
Top each zucchini with pepperoni.
Bake uncovered in a preheated 375 degree
oven for 20 – 30 minutes or until tender.
If the cheese isn’t golden brown, put the
pan under the broiler to brown.
Top with more mozzarella cheese just
until it melts then serve.

This sounds really good and I’m not a big squash eater.
Me either but I swear it tasted like pizza!
I’m going to have to try it one day.
Hahahahaha my husband may object but maybe I could adopt you!
Healthy and yummy, great idea!
My grandson is T1D and borderline Celiac so these kinds of recipes are perfect 🙂
That’s wonderful, glad to help! I hope he likes them. Feel bad for him!
Can’t wait to try this one! We have both green and yellow zucs coming in up the wazoo – eeek!! LOL.
I used two really small ones for this recipe and ate them both for lunch! Lol
So yummy, and so easy to make, these are awesome!
You can never have too many recipes for zucchini! (If you grow your own you’ll know what I mean) These sound yummy.
I use to make 35 loaves of zucchini bread and freeze them every year while my kids were home and I know what you mean….lol
Ohh I shouldn’t be looking at this when I’m so hungry! 😊 these look amazing!!! Yummm I love the creativity 😋😋
Thank you Linda! They did turn out really good!
Prolific aren’t they! I suspect you have a wonderful vegetable garden.
Yes it is a really good year! Thanks!
Yum! I often top our zucchini with meat and cheese!
My first time….not my last!
I use eggplant more often. I make it all the time when I have not enough meat for two meals. It works out great because the eggplant is filling (and a veggie (fruit) ) so I don’t need a lot of meat. I do love your pizza idea! I have don’t that on eggplant “rounds”, I will have to try this. YUM!
Thank you for a Great idea!
Now this beats a high-carb meal for Summer!
OMG they made for a fabulous meal! I picked up the entire zucchini half (they were small) and ate it that way….lol

When my zucchini starts to grow, I will make these. Yum!
You won’t be sorry! Ours have just started.
I try to do different things with my zucchini, so I am sure this will become one to go with. I planted late though, so it will be awhile.
Right but you know how it goes, once one starts you’ll have a bushel of them…lol I http://indianeskitchen.com/2018/07/13/hollandaise-sauceswear you could sit and watch them grow!
Oh yes, and I have about 5 hills that I planted.
This sounds delicious! My zucchini plant has almost taken over my garden this year and I’ve been looking for new recipes to try. Can’t wait to give this one a go!
How nice to have a good garden this year! It’s always nice to try a new way to cook zucchini and this was delicious!
