Healthy Zucchini Gluten Free Pizza Bites

Finished product!

Who doesn’t like pizza? I do. I love pizza. Yet, being a pizza lover and gluten free, it’s hard to really indulge myself in some genuine pizza.

Business trips to New York are not the same – you pass by the greatest pizza places and close – but no cigar. You can’t have them because of the white wheat that you will consume with every gooey bite. Oh well.

But, my friends those tempting days are over!  {Cue the choir!} I know there are a lot of gluten free fast food pizzas now. Domino’s is one of my favorite. Please check out the GF Menu.

Yet, if you are a girl watching her skinny, little waist line – might not be the best option. And this is not for those with celiac. That needs to be noted – just for those with gluten sensitivity. The pizza is not made in a 100% gluten free cooking zone.

Before putting these awesome pizza bites in the oven.

In comes the option of zucchini pizza bites – low-carb and gluten free. What? Yep. Completely guilt free.

This literally took me no time at all, and I dined on a feast of mini-pizzas last night. They were scrumptious. And, I really was not missing the dough or crust. I felt lighter and way more healthy for sure.

You will need: 2 zucchinis, 1 bag of low fat mozzarella cheese, Italian seasoning and 1 jar of marinara sauce.

Simply slice the zucchinis into little circle pieces – and set on a baking tray (lined with cooking spray).

Take a spoon and dab marinara sauce on each little piece. Sprinkle the Italian seasoning over these mini pizzas and then set a pinch of cheese on each round slice.

Preheat the oven to 375 and bake these little circles of goodness for about 10-15 minutes.

Ta-da! Pizza bites without the fat or wheat and totally accommodating to a low-carb diet. Enjoy, radiant ones!
