Zucchini "pizza" slices

Oh my goodness, these were tasty!  They were the "light entree" at our meal with hearty grain and veggie side dishes, or I could see making these as snacks for the kids too (and yes, the kids ate them up!).  I can also imagine using other pizza toppings like mini pepperoni, sliced olives and other veggies as well as the tomatoes.

You could preroast the veggies and prep the "pizza" in advance and only have to do the final stage of baking at dinnertime.  You might need to bake a few minutes longer if you have a straight-from-the-fridge, cold, prepped baking sheet to get the cheese good and melty.

Zucchini Slice Pizzas
Makes 4-6 servings

1/2 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
3 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
olive oil
salt and pepper
2 cups shredded mozzarella

Toss the zucchini and tomatoes with oil, salt and pepper.

Spread the tomatoes on a baking sheet and roast for 25 minutes at 425F.  Set aside to cool.

Spread the zucchini slices on 2 baking sheets and roast 10 minutes, flipping once, at 425F.

Top the zucchini slices with cheese and cherry tomatoes.  Bake 15 minutes at 425F, until the cheese is lightly browned and melty. Pin It
