Ingredients for Zucchini Pizza Bites

Zucchini: Choose large firm zucchini so they are easy to slice. Slice smaller zucchini lengthwise if needed. If you have garden-fresh zucchini, even better!

Pizza Sauce: Store-bought is perfectly fine, but homemade pizza sauce is easy to make and has great flavor. In a pinch, crushed tomatoes with a sprinkle of herbs can do the trick.

Mozzarella Cheese: Shred your own for a meltier, gooier texture, but pre-shredded saves time. Feel free to mix it up with provolone or cheddar for a twist.

Parmesan Cheese: Grated fresh from the block gives a richer taste, but pre-grated works if that’s what you have on hand.

Toppings: Mini pepperonis are perfectly bite-sized, but chopping up regular ones works too. Try turkey pepperoni, sliced olives, bell peppers, onions, or even pineapple.

How to Make Zucchini Pizza Bites

  1. Slice fresh zucchini slices (per the recipe below).
  2. Top with zesty pizza sauce, a sprinkle of herbs, cheese, and your choice of pizza goodies.
  3. Bake to melty perfection, and voila!

Tips for Perfect Mini Pizzas

  • Don’t overcook: To keep the pizzas from getting soggy, be sure not to overcook them.
  • Spice It Up: Add red pepper flakes or your favorite hot sauce if you’re craving some heat.
  • Veggie Variation: Experiment with different veggie bases like sliced eggplant, portobello mushrooms, or bell pepper slices for a fun twist.
  • Storage: If there are any leftovers, store them in an airtight container. They’re even good cold! These can be reheated in the air fryer or in a skillet.

  1. Chef Ray here.
    excellent recipe. I cut and dried the zucchini for a day. I then put zucchini on baking sheet sprinkled with oregano and granulated garlic. baked for 30 min. at 200.
    Then topped with pepperoni and broiled until it began to curl. The marinara, mozzarella, parmesam, more oregano and a slice of cherry tomato.
    So delicious.5 stars

  2. I made these for an appetizer for a large group and everyone loved them. Healthy, yummy and a way to use all that zucchini from the garden!
