Pizza Zucchini Boats

Zucchini, you have become one of my all time favorite foods. Zucchini chips are a staple in my diet. I recently fell in love with a cheesy tomato zucchini bake. I have always loved my grandmother's zucchini bread. And I keep finding new ways to use this delicious green squash. What better way to make pizza healthy than with zucchini?

Italian seasoning, optional
pizza sauce
mozzarella (or parmesan or cheddar or whatever cheese like best)
toppings (pepperonis, peppers, onions, mushrooms, basil, etc.)

Preheat oven to 360 degrees.

Cut the zucchinis in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds in the center with a spoon. Season with Italian seasoning, if desired. You could also use garlic powder, onion powder, or oregano.

Spoon the pizza sauce into the zucchini boats. You could also you marinara sauce, tomato sauce, or even chopped tomatoes for an even healthier version. Sprinkle with cheese and add toppings.

Place on a greased cookie sheet for 20 to 25 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbling.
