Zucchini Pizza Boats

Pizza. Everyone loves it. What’s not to like with tasty sauce, cheese and pepperoni combining to tantalize your taste buds? Well, calories for one. More than 300 in an average slice. Try this delicious alternative. You’ll get the sauce, cheese and pepperoni, but with the addition of this low-calorie, high-nutrient fruit, the end result is about 40% fewer calories.


  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 1/4 cup pizza/pasta sauce
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4-6 pepperoni


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Score zucchini like you’re doing an avocado and scoop out insides into a large bowl. Mix with pizza/pasta sauce.
  2. Place hollowed zucchini on a large baking sheet. Spoon on sauce, then top with mozzarella and pepperoni. Bake until zucchini is tender and cheese is golden, about 20-25 minutes.
