Zucchini Pizza Boats

Am I the only one who sometimes craves gooey, melted mozzarella cheese, topped with salty Parmesan? I’m not the only one, right? You’re with me on this? Preferably served with a little spicy marinara? I love pizza, but sometimes I’m not in the mood for something so heavy. Plus, I’m always trying to find ways to sneak in more vegetables!

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 medium zucchini, sliced length-wise

  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon shredded Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Using a spoon, gently scrape out the insides of the zucchini. You don’t want to scrape it all out, just the seedy, soft, inside. You should still have a lot of zucchini left. You’re just making a spot for sauce!
  3. Spoon the marinara sauce into the scooped out zucchini.
  4. Top with mozzarella and parmesan cheese
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and brown. Serve!
