This recipe was submitted by Mama J from San Mateo, CA.   Very creative Mama J!   I should send you some pictures of things that I’ve seen and have you replicate it!   Sounds yummy!

“Saw a picture of these online but no recipe so I made it up”.

Zucchini pizzas

Serves 4.


  • 2 larger diameter zucchini (not the little skinny ones)
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tsp fresh chopped basil
  • shredded mozzerella
  • olive oil
  • salt


  • Slice zucchini in half lengthwise, use a small spoon to carve out the seeds in each half.
  • Put zucchini shells in 400 oven while you prep the sauce.
  • Chop up tomatoes and 1/2 the insides of the zucchinis.
  • Heat 1 T of olive oil and then lightly sauté the tomatoes, zucchini insides, garlic and basil (I used the frozen cubes of garlic and basil you can buy at TJ’s), until it becomes a pizza-like sauce consistency. Salt to taste.
  • Remove zucchini shells and scoop sauce into them, then top with a little shredded mozzerella cheese.
  • Return to oven and bake until cheese melts and browns a little at the edges.
