Zucchini Pizza Boats

Zucchini Pizza Boats

I miss pizza! I crave it like every Friday night. Now that my gastric band is fairly tight, I have had a hard time finding a replacement. I found a similar recipe on allrecipes.com . I changed it up a bit to better meet my taste buds. The great thing about this is...you can still make your family pizza and not feel so left out.

Here is how it is done:

Cut the stem off of the zucchini and cut horizontally.
Spoon out some of the inners (the inside)
Season to taste. I used salt and Italian seasoning
Add your favorite toppings. Don't get to excited. You still have to count those calories. Reach for the healthy stuff. I used reduce-fat Jimmy Dean sausage and mixed peppers.
(ok, I have to admit..I should of used turkey sausage)
Add a little pizza sauce and cheese.
Then bake at 375 for about 12 minutes.

It really is good! You will have to try it.
