Grilled Zucchini Pizza

Hi Everyone,

Half way through the week!  Woohoo!!  I can’t wait till Friday, we have our work Barbecue and then I am on vacation.  It’s going to be wonderful not having to go to work, sleep in and just have fun.  The only problem is I can’t believe it’s August already!  Where the heck did the summer go?  I already noticed that the sun is shifting.  When I come home from work, my lounge chair is normally in the sun, but this past week it’s been getting half way shaded.  I don’t like that, I’m not ready for summer to come to an end, it feels like it just begun!

Ready for today’s recipe?  I am just loving this one!!!

These are my Grilled Zucchini Pizza’s.  They are so quick and easy to make, tasty too.  I made mine with tomatoes and pepperoni for my Hubby.  He’s not a fan of zucchini, but he loved these.  I asked him would you eat these again and he said yes.  Hey that’s a huge step for him.  I guess if I put pepperoni or bacon on anything, he’ll eat it!

These pizzas took about 5 minutes to make and about 5 minutes on the grill.  It’s been so hot that I refuse to turn on the oven.  However you could cook these in your broiler if you prefer it over the grill.

I used an 8 Ball Zucchini, which is a zucchini about the shape and size of a softball.  I sliced it about 1/4″ thick, added the pizza sauce, fresh basil, oregano, mozzarella cheese and topped it with sliced cherry tomatoes.  I placed it on a non-stick aluminium foil and placed it on the grill over low heat and cooked it until the cheese melted, which was about 5 minutes.  This is truly a wonderful, yummy tasting dish.  I think it’s my favorite way to have zucchini so far.  Having zucchini as pizza is so good that I don’t even miss the bread and either did my Husband.  I really am happy he liked them.

I hope you like today’s recipe, honestly I am really impressed with them.  They tasted way better than I thought they would.  The key is to use the pizza sauce that you like.  We used Trader Joe’s jarred pizza sauce.  That is a family favorite!

I have a feeling I will be making these again this week.  I have Five 8 Ball Zucchini’s to use this week, and since my Husband likes them, I will for sure make them soon!

Have a great rest of the week!
