Zucchini Pizza Boats

Recipe by: Lisa Lillien (a.k.a. Hungry Girl)
Makes 8 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes; Cook Time: 20 minutes; Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 medium-large zucchini, stem end removed
  • 1 stick light string cheese
  • 2 tbsp. pizza sauce
  • 3 slices turkey pepperoni, chopped
  • Optional seasonings: garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, Italian seasoning
  • Optional topping: crushed red pepper flakes


  1. Pierce zucchini several times with a fork. Place on a microwave-safe plate, and microwave for 2 minutes.
  2. Flip zucchini and microwave for 2 more minutes, or until softened. Let cool, about 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, break string cheese stick into thirds, and place in a blender or food processor; blend at high speed until shredded. (Or pull into shreds and roughly chop.)
  4. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise. Gently scoop out the inside flesh, leaving about 1/4 inch inside the skin. Thoroughly pat dry.
  5. If you like, season sauce. Divide sauce between hollowed-out zucchini halves, sprinkle with cheese, and top with chopped pepperoni.
  6. Microwave for 1 minute, or until cheese has slightly melted. Enjoy!
