Craving Pizza?

I do… especially on the weekends.  Since I usually don’t work out as hard on the weekends, I’ve been looking for ways to still eat healthy and keep my net calories in a normal range, haha.  I decided to try out my own version of the zucchini pizza boats.  These are great for people looking for a low carb or low calorie alternative to calling in a pizza.

You’ll Need:

4 medium-large zucchini squash

Scoop out seeds, but be sure to leave the flesh.  This with serve as your “crust.”

Sprinkle half of the mozzarella cheese evenly between the eight zucchini boats.  Then place 6-8 pepperonis on each one.

Top boats with the remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese. Season with more garlic if desired. Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes.  Serve hot.
