Zucchini Pizza Bites Recipe

Here are the ingredients that you need to compile to complete this recipe:

  • 1 small zucchini (about 5 to 6 inches long)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Grapeseed Oil or Avocado Oil
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian Seasoning, optional
  • 1 tablespoon Pizza Sauce
  • 4 tablespoons Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, use more or less as desired
  • Optional Garnishes: Dried Oregano, Red Pepper Flakes, Chopped Fresh Basil, Grated Parmesan Cheese


Here are the directions that you need to follow to complete the recipe:

  1. For the first step, you need to adjust your toaster oven’s cooking rack to the top position to make sure the recipe won’t burn. Preheat the oven to about 400F.
  2. Now, you need to thinly slice the zucchini into ½-inch thick rounds. Complete until all of the zucchini has been sliced.
  3. For the next step, you need to add all of the zucchini to a small bowl and toss them with oil, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Continue to toss the zucchini until all of them have been fully coated with seasoning.
  4. Now, you want to arrange the slices in a single layer on an ungreased roasting pan.
  5. Broil all of the zucchini on the high setting until the zucchini is slightly tender with a few browned spots, about 3 to 5 minutes. Watch them carefully to make sure that the zucchini do not burn.
  6. Using oven mitts, carefully remove the pan from the oven. Place the pan on a heat-safe surface and flip the zucchini slices until they are all the opposite side.
  7. Now, you need to top each slice with pizza sauce, then sprinkle them with cheese.
  8. Return the pan to the oven and broil until the zucchini is tender and the cheese is melted and bubbly about 2 to 3 minutes more.
  9. Allow pizza bites to cool for a few minutes before sprinkling with fresh basil and digging in!
