I always second guess myself whenever I type out “zucchini”. Is it two C’s or two N’s? It’s two C’s. Vacuum messes me up too.
Back to the original subject: Zucchini Pizza. I miss pizza. I’ve started living my life Paleo and because of it… I can’t have normal pizza. Eh, I’ve made it work though. I’ve made these delicious treats which are WAY healthier than normal pizza. I’ve also made a coconut flour crust pizza, which I will most likely make a post about sometime in the future.
In the harvest box that I get every two weeks there was a bag of zucchini and normally I would cut it up and put it in a stir fry, but I wanted to try something different. A friend of mine posted something similar to this on facebook and I knew that I wanted to try it. I’m always looking for new recipes to try, and if they aren’t Paleo friendly then I find a way to make it so. Below is the recipe:
7 zucchini (Use as many or as little as you want. Tops cut off and sliced in half.
Shredded Mozzarella cheese
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Wash and prep your zucchini.
3. Drizzle baking sheet with olive oil and arrange zucchini on pan.
4. Spread tomato sauce on zucchini.
5. Top with parmesan cheese.
6. Bake in oven for 15 minutes.
7. Take pan out of oven and top with mozzarella cheese.
8. Put pan back in oven and cook for another 5-10 minutes (you’re just melting the cheese)
9. DONE!! Serve on a plate and ENJOY!!
Note: You can add any toppings that you want to this dish. Want pepperoni or sausage? SURE!! Add that in step 5. It’s a very versatile dish. You can put whatever toppings or cheese that you wish. I think some stores even have a pizza blend. I like to use Parmesan, Monterey Jack, and Mozzarella cheese for my pizza. This would make an excellent appetizer/side dish or even an entree. It’s not vegan friendly because of the cheese, and I know that there are some Paleo people that don’t eat dairy, but the cheese used was raw and unpasteurized. Dairy is a gray area for Paleo. PaleoJoe and I try to keep to the raw and unpasteurized dairy as much as we can. Just so you know. Oh and nutritional facts about zucchini can be found HERE.
