Can you eat the skin of a Zucchini?
The skin of zucchini is perfectly safe to eat. Larger sized zucchinis that are waxed can taste a bit bitter so you may peel if you like but not necessary. But most zucchinis tastes just fine with skin on you can wash and eat with the skin. I left the skin on for this Zucchini Pizza Bites recipe.
Ingredients and Substitutes for the Pizza bites
What you need to make these zucchini pizza bites:
Zucchini: Choose medium to large zucchinis. You can use the yellow version but I recommend using the green zucchinis.
Marinara Sauce: any brand will do. Just go ahead and use whichever you have handy.
Mozzarella Cheese: Use shredded mozzarella cheese. If you like you can use low-fat cheese.
Pepperoni: Use mini kinds. I used turkey since I don’t eat pork but use any kind you prefer.
