Ingredients

  • 1 zucchini sliced 3/8" thick (I love using my mandoline)
  • 3 tablespoons marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 2 tablespoons mini pepperonis see Notes below

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400ºF. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
  • Arrange the zucchinis in an even layer on the baking sheet. Top each with marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese and mini pepperonis.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbling. (I often like to broil it for 30-60 seconds at the end so it gets super crispy cheese on the edges that has melted over! My favorite part!)
  • Allow to cool for 2-3 minutes. Serve warm.
  • As always, lots of tips, FAQs and substitution info in the Recipe Notes!

Notes

Serving Size: This is enough to feed 1 person as a meal, or a few people as a snack. If making for a crowd as an appetizer, you'll need about half a zucchini per person.
Mini Pepperonis: You can buy mini pepperonis in store. Or! Get large pepperonis and cut them smaller. I used a single hole punch (that you normally use for paper, haha!). Or you could use kitchen shears and cut into little triangles.
Squash: This would also work with yellow squash!
Prep Ahead: If making this for an appetizer, I would fully assemble on a baking sheet and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Then, when you're guests are about to arrive bake and serve warm!
Leftovers: We've never had leftovers of these, they get eaten too fast, haha! But you could store them in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Could eat them cold or reheat in a 400ºF oven again until warm, about 5-10 minutes.
