Zucchini Pizza Bites!

Ok...these little critters are SO good. I made the recipe up tonight as I went along, so you can tweak it however you'd like. Not only  did I fall in love with them and find them delicious, but they're low in calories! (Two things I keep near the top of my list when picking foods to fuel my body with.) The pictures I've encluded don't do them any justice but YES, they are that good!
What you will need:
Fresh Zucchini
Feta Cheese
Diced Ham
Olive Oil
Fresh Garlic

 Slice zucchini and place on a cookie sheet. (It will be nice when the zucchini are bigger come summer.) Crush your garlic and put in a small bowl with 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil and mix well. Brush each zucchini with olive oil and garlic.
Sprinkle with feta (Yes, I know feta again but it's my favorite!) Place diced ham on top of feta. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, then switch to broil for 3-4 minutes. 

That's it. It's That easy! (The cheese may not look melted in the picture below, but trust me...it is. Bubbly and good!
You could serve this as a side dish, a healthy appetizer, or as dinner like I had it tonight, served with a side salad. 


Enjoy, and just think, you're eating pizza AND it's healthy!

Pin It!

  2. Thank you Charlene! The smaller zucchini reminds me of cucumber when sliced. I must have had it on the brain when doing this post. I fixed it! Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Yum! Those look really good! I love anything with zucchini in it! I have to ask (i havent read your whole blog so you may have already covered this) do you ever eat unhealthy-ish food? I eat very healthy breakfast and lunch and try to prepare healthy suppers for my family but I will go out for pizza or mexican food, I just try to do this in moderation. I was just wondering about how you handle that! Love the blog!! Your cover pic of you in the Nike shirt is such an inspiration to me!

  7. Honestly, I've NEVER had zucchini any other way but battered and deep fried- but this looks very good. Thanks for sharing a much more healthy option for zucchini! :)

  9. That looks VERY yummy. Well, except the ham -- I'm a vegetarian. But I could find a suitable substitute:) Thanks for sharing!

  10. You could even try cutting a whole one in half, scooping out the seed part to create a boat, then put some ingredients inside! These look tasty - cant wait to try them!
