Zucchini Pizza Boats



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

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided

1 package turkey pepperoni

~1/4 cup pizza or marinara sauce

Seasonings (garlic, oregano, basil)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Cut stems off zucchini and half lengthwise.


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


Place squash onto foil or parchment paper lined pan. Add 1 tsp of pizza sauce into each zucchini boat.


Spread sauce evenly and season with garlic, oregano, and basil.


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.



This recipe will make four 2-pizza boats servings.  The nutritional information below is for one serving (two boats) according to myfitnesspal.
