Coming up with delicious, easy and quick snacks- that don't rely on gluten- has been a bit of a challenge as I try to transition grain and gluten out of my diet for some health reasons. When I'm craving something quick for a snack or an easy dinner that doesnt require much prep OR cooking time, I often feel a bit stuck. Luckily, these easy and delicious Pizza Zucchinis are grain and gluten free, relatively low calorie, and extremely delicious!
I've seen a few varations of these online, but I made mine to be the easiest, tastiest I could come up with quickly. I personally don't prefer to pre-bake the zucchini slices, since I like a firm crisp texture from the zucchinis. If you prefer yours a little more cooked, you can pre-cook the zucchinis for about 10-15 minutes before adding the sauce and cheese.
These are perfect as easy appetizers, great for lunch, and kind of taste like bagel bites- but with a lot more veggies! You'll absolutely love them.
