Zucchini Pizza Boats

Zucchini pizza boats are stuffed zucchinis filled with pizza sauce, melted cheese, and mini pepperoni. They’re a delicious way to enjoy a low-carb pizza night, and are flavorful enough to even be popular with people who don’t always love eating vegetables!
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 17 minutes
Total Time 32 minutes
Servings 12


  • 6 medium zucchini
  • Oil for oiling the pan
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 cups freshly shredded pizza mozzarella
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan
  • 1/2 cup mini pepperoni


  • Preheat the oven to 375 F (190 C).
  • Cut each zucchini in half lengthwise. Use a spoon to scoop out the inner flesh of the zucchini, leaving a wall all the way around that’s 1/4” - 1/3” thick.
  • Lightly oil a large rimmed baking sheet. Arrange the zucchini on the baking sheet, cut side up. Sprinkle the zucchini with the kosher salt.
  • Spoon approximately 1 heaping Tablespoon of pizza sauce into each zucchini half. Sprinkle each zucchini half with mozzarella cheese, Italian seasoning, parmesan cheese, and mini pepperoni.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes (or until the cheese is hot and bubbly, and the zucchini is tender). Turn the oven to broil, and broil for 2 minutes (or until the cheese is just starting to turn golden brown).
