New Recipe: Zucchini Pizza Boats

Hubby was given 2 Mexican zucchinis (not sure how they differ from other zucchinis beyond size and skin colouring – green speckled).  I wasn’t sure what to do with them until someone mentioned they were going to make zucchini pizzas for dinner one night.  It sounded fabulous and I felt I should give it a whirl.  Here’s what I created:

  • 2 Mexican zucchinis
  • Shredded pizza-blend cheese
  • Pizza sauce (or spaghetti sauce)
  • Pepperoni, or other toppings

Preheat oven to 425*.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean up. Wash the outside of the zucchinis very well to remove the dirt and grit.  Cut each zucchini in half length-wise.  Use a spoon to scoop out the guts of the zucchini.  You may need a knife to cut some of it but be sure to leave about 1/4 inch around the edge.  Put the guts onto a cutting board and finely chop.  Place in a bowl and pour spaghetti sauce on top.  Mix well, until all the zucchini guts are covered. Fill the “boats” with the mixture but don’t overfill.  Bake in the oven approximately 15 minutes or until the boats are nearly tender. Once they are nearly tender (use a fork to tell), pull them out of the oven and allow them to sit for about 5 minutes. Top with cheese and your favourite toppings.  Place back into the oven for about 10 minutes or until the cheese
