Zucchini Pizza Boats

Zucchini boats are a delicious and fun way to get some extra veggies in. They are so versatile and act like a minipizza; top them with your favourites and enjoy! They also make for a very-low-carb side dish option for anyone watching their carbohydrate intake or following a keto diet!

Ingredients

  • 4 small to medium zucchini
  • ½ cup tomato sauce or pizza sauce
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella
  • 2 tbsp. dried oregano
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions

Wash and cut the ends of the zucchini off. Place in a pot and fill with water. Bring to a boil and gently boil zucchini until they soften (5–7 minutes). Remove from pot.

Slice the zucchini in half lengthwise. Remove seeds, so you have room for stuffing.

Preheat oven to 375 °F (190 °C).

Stuff zucchini boats with tomato sauce. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper to taste.

Place in oven-safe dish and bake for about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Enjoy!

Serves 4–6.
