Try a healthy take on an old Friday favorite…
If you’re looking for a low-carb, high-fiber alternative to the old fan-favorite, pizza, try mini zucchini pizzas! The squash, zucchini, is a favorite because it is in-season and ripe for the picking (so it’s at peak flavor)! Zucchini contains so many fantastic nutrients such as vitamin A, magnesium, folate, potassium, copper, and phosphorus as well as a high content of omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, niacin, and protein.

To make this simple recipe, slice zucchini into rounds (or if you prefer, lengthwise), place on a baking sheet and then grill or broil for several minutes until the zucchini begins to soften. Remove from the oven and top with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese and any other topping you’d like. Try nitrite-free turkey pepperoni, olives or your favorite spices to make each ‘slice’ unique! Continue to broil until the cheese begins to bubble and serve hot. Mini Zucchini Pizzas are a fun way to get your pizza fix and your veggies all in one!
