Undressed Skeleton — Zucchini Pizzas, Anyone? (Only 40-50 Calories)

Zucchini Pizzas, Anyone? (Only 40-50 Calories)

 

If you were to ask a class of elementary school students what their favorite food was, most of their answers would be “pizza”. If you were to ask a college campus what their favorite food was, most of their answers would be “pizza”. If you were to ask me what my favorite food was, I would have to say “pizza” too. There is something about pizza that makes it everyone’s favorite. Maybe it’s the cheese, the sauce or a simple reminder of home. 

If you are anything like Jeremy and I, we have a love-hate relationship with pizza. We love how it taste, but hate how addicting it is. I have a hard time saying “no” to a third slice. Jeremy has a hard time saying “no” to the entire pizza.(don’t worry he is sitting next to me and agrees) That is why we like to make pizza alternatives that are low calorie. That way we can eat as many “slices” as we’d like. Sure, it’s not “pizza” but it does the trick while adding extra nutrients to our dinner.

Ingredients:

-3 Large Zucchini
-Low Fat Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese
-Pizza Sauce (choose a low sodium) 
-Garlic/Parmesan Blend (365 Organic) 
-Turkey Pepperoni’s (Optional)
-Bell Peppers
-Red Onion
-Any Extra Toppings of Your Choice.

-Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. (I forgot to preheat and had to stare at these delicious pizza’s while waiting for the oven to heat up…torture)

-Cut the zucchini into thin slices.

-Lay the slices on a  non-stick baking sheet.

-Top each zucchini thin with one tbsp of pizza sauce.

-Sprinkle about one tsp of the garlic Parmesan blend over each zucchini slice.

-Top with your choice of toppings. I chose peppers and onions. Jeremy added turkey pepperonis to his. 

-Cover your toppings with one tbsp of cheese on each individual pizza. I am not a huge fan of cheese so I sprinkled about half of that on top of mine.

Bake in the oven for approximately 23-25 minutes.

Above is what my pizza’s looked like with less cheese and no pepperoni. 

We also made shrimp Caesar salad to go a long with our pizza’s.
