Zucchini Pizza Bites

I am always looking for ways to eat healthier.  It can be a battle for me for a variety of reasons.  One of them is that I still think I am in my twenties when could eat anything I want and it not affect my weight like it does now.  Then there is also the fact I love pizza, cookies, cake, and candy.    I have a desk drawer, that should be used for files, however it is filled with snacks.  Now don’t get me wrong, I like healthy foods as well.  I will eat vegetables with no problem.  I love broccoli and squash.  I just also really like junk food.  That being said, when I find a recipe for a healthier version of something, I try it

Recently, I was on Facebook and one of those videos with the recipes popped up.  I noticed it had something to do with pizza, and they used zucchini squash as the crust.  I like both of those things and it was pizza, bite size pizza in fact!

The recipe on the video and on the website was super easy to follow.  If you would like to see it for your self, you can click here. I added sausage to pizza sauce, I think it would have been just as tasty with out it.

I  decided to just fill the baking sheet with the zucchini squash, instead of making a few at time.  Hindsight: not a super great idea, since as I went the messier these things got since my arm got tired and I was edging on Hangry.    Per instructions i  spread olive oil on each slice and pre-baked.

 

Then I added my topping.  I wanted something more than just cheese, since I’m not a huge pepperoni fan, so I added some ground sausage as well.   If you are going to use pepperoni,  I would suggest chopping the pepperoni instead of what they show in the video.  Or just buy mini pepperoni.     I’m now tempted to try this with other veggies, like eggplant.   IMG_0060
