This is one that I stole from my Dad. His grandfather grew Zucchini in the backyard. Homegrown Zucchini can be HUGE, but if you don’t grow it yourself,
Start by cutting in half the largest Zucchini’s you can find and bake them in the oven at 375 for 20 min.
Then carve out the centers using a large spoon.
Then here’s your time to get creative. You can use pizza sauce, spaghetti sauce, or I chose to use a red and a green hot salsa from a local merchant at the Nashville Farmers’ Market.
Top with your favorite cheese. If you are trying to watch your calories, non fat mozzarella is always a good option. You could even add pepperoni, sausage, onions, peppers or any of your favorite pizza toppings.
Bake for 10-15 more minutes until the cheese is melted.
And you have the a veggie disguised as pizza. Something even the pickiest kiddo would at least try!
Sorry to my vegetarians out there. I served my vegetarian side dish with some steak! 😉
