Who doesn’t love a good slice of pizza here and there?
Or a good pizza substitute..
I made zucchini pizza bites this weekend & I KNOW WHAT YOU’RE THINKING.
They aren’t the same thing as a real slice of pizza. And, you’re right. They aren’t. BUT – they’re actually really, really good.
There’s nothing like a big, warm, cheesy slice of pizza when you’re really feeling it ( we’ve all been there ). I totally get it.
But these give you a little taste of pizza as a quick eat. Not to mention, they came out really ‘effing good and they were the perfect bite size pieces for appetizers, a quick snack, or even as a side at dinner.
Plus – they’re healthy.. DUH.
Me and BA spent Saturday in the kitchen cooking up a storm for the sips & eats section of CIC – you guys are going to LOVE it!
SO. I dragged BA along to the kitchen ( he actually loves to cook, which helps ) and we made a ton of SUPER QUICK & healthy meals to try out. We loved them all & I’m realllllly excited to share them with you guys!
You probably know by now that I’m just not into meals that take super long. I can’t do it. Literally.can’t.do.it. I like easy, quick, and good. Simple. I’m just not made to be in the kitchen all day. Some are, which is great. I envy those people.. you actually rock. Like, that’s not easy.
But I actually love cooking with Bill. We make it a lot of fun and even if the meal comes out like shit ( we’ve been there, believe me.. ) we don’t feel that bad since we were in it together HA, you know?
Remember how to stop eating like shit when you have a boyfriend ? Cooking together is a total game changer.
I also make Bill dance with me in the kitchen because someone told me that the key to living a long, healthy life is dancing. I swear. She worked with elderly’s and said that anyone that was over the age of 85 or 90 she would end up asking what they did to live a long life. They all had answers that included dancing. SO CUTE, RIGHT?
So now I make BA dance so that we live long lives. Try it.
Obviously you can change up the toppings, which is even more fun. DO YOU.
All of the zucchini bites had pizza sauce. Some had goat cheese, some had mozzarella. Some had turkey pepperoni, some didn’t. You can do whatever your little heart desires. Fun, right?
My favorite was the ones with just sauce and goat cheese – so simple yet so much flavor. I love a good goat cheese bite.. mhhhhm yum.
+ ZUCCHINI – WE USED 3
+ PIZZA SAUCE – ANY KIND YOU LIKE
+ CHEESE – I USED GOAT AND MOZZARELLA
+ TOPPINGS – I USED TURKEY PEPPERONI, FEEL FREE TO GET CREATIVE!
+ CHOP UP YOUR ZUCCHINI INTO SLICES
+ PUT A LITTLE BIT OF AVOCADO OIL INTO A BOWL ( EYEBALL IT ) & MIX THE ZUCCHINI SLICES IN IT SO THEY GET SOME OIL ON THEM
+ PUT THEM ON THE STOVE AND COOK THEM FOR 2 MINUTES ON EACH SIDE, MEDIUM HEAT
+ PUT THE TOPPINGS ON
+ PUT THEM IN THE OVEN FOR 2 MINUTES ON THE BROIL – HIGH SETTING
That’s it, you’re done. How easy is that?
I’m going to be honest, I didn’t think they were going to be as good as they were ( lol ).
So I clearly highly recommend them.. and I’ll be asking BA if we can make them all the time now. Or if he can make them for me. Hmm.
Of course, comment and let me know if you guys like!
happy sunday chicks
