  • 2 Large Zucchini
  • ½ Cup Marinara Sauce
  • Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • ½ Cup Mini Pepperoni Slices I used turkey
  • Fresh Chopped Parsley or Basil to garnish


  • Preheat your oven to 400F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Alternatively, you can use 2 medium baking sheets. Slice the zucchini 1 inch thick, and using a melon baller, scoop a bit from the inside, to create a small cup that will hold in the sauce.
  • Arrange the zucchini on a prepared baking sheet and top with marinara sauce, mozzarella, and pepperoni slices.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the cheese melted and bubbly.



  • If you don't have marinara sauce, low carb pizza sauce or a tomato sauce works great too. 
  • Mozzarella works great on these  Zucchini Pizza Bites, but they can be made with any cheese.
  • To make larger rounds, slice zucchini diagonally.
  • Strands of pre-shredded mozzarella can be too long and messy, finely shred your own or roughly chop bagged shredded mozzarella to make sprinkling easier.
  • You can use a grill pan or a nonstick skillet.
  • Finely dice some red or yellow bell pepper and sprinkle it on top for more veggie goodness!
  • Feel free to top with your favorite pizza toppings, chopped up!
