    Pizza is a weak pleasure of mine. Ever since I started eating healthy, I’ve tossed pizza Fridays right out the window. Instead, I’ve been experimenting with a few healthier alternatives to pizza. You might recall the cauliflower or broccoli crusts pizzas or the popular rainbow cauliflower crust pizza. Well this zucchini pizza is another gem.

    Zucchini pizza boats are great if you are on a paleo or low-carb diet or simply just trying to eat healthier. They’re very easy to make and come together in just a few minutes with minimal prep and effort. The video below shows just how easy these zucchini pizza boats are to make.

    To began, simply slice your zucchini in halves and spread some butter, oil, and oregano on them. Top with marinara and mozzarella cheese and bake for 20 minutes and that’s pretty much it! They store well in the fridge and make a great snack, appetizer or meal. Enjoy!
