Fancy Pants App: Zucchini Pizzettes

Print Friendly and PDF
I realized its been a while since I made an appetizer for you all!  When Mom found her favorite blog, SkinnyTaste had these unique little zucchini pizzas, I couldn't help but want to make them for all of you!  I love zucchini so these were an easy choice, but even if you don't, they taste so much like a pop of pizza that all pizza lovers will gobble them up.

Just to give you an idea, every week on Sunday K&E visit Mom and Dad (and incidentally, me).  E is usually hungry by the time they get here so he spends the first 20 minutes of his visit rooting through the cabinets, refrigerator, even the freezer when opportunity calls for it.  So the two trays of Zucchini Pizzettes that came out of the oven were gone so fast, you would have no idea they were healthy!

According to Skinny Taste's nutritional facts, 4 Zucchini Pizzettes have the following:
Calories: 124.8 • Fat: 5.7 g Protein: 8.2 g Carb: 10.4 g Fiber: 3.0 g   
I adapted it slightly, but the above just shows that pizza can actually be good for you!  So try them out!  You have nothing to lose (except some weight maybe hehe).
Zucchini Pizzettes (adapted from here)
Serves: 6
6 ounce mozzarella, shredded
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon garlic powder
2 zucchinis, sliced thin (24 slices)
1/4 cup tomato sauce

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.  Combine the mozzarella, oregano, and garlic powder.  Set aside.   Top the zucchini slices with tomato sauce.  Top with mozzarella mixture.  Bake for 5-8 minutes, until cheese has browned.   

Until the next time my oven is on...
