Think of these zucchini pizza bites as a fun gluten-free alternative to bagel bites. Be sure not to overcook the zucchini or the bites may become soggy. We like the classic pepperoni topping, but feel free to experiment with your own favorites.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut zucchini crosswise to make 16 (1-inch-thick) slices. Arrange the slices in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with pepper and salt. Bake until starting to soften, 15 to 18 minutes. Remove from oven; top evenly with marinara, mozzarella and pepperoni.
Switch the oven to broil and place a rack 8 inches from the heat. Broil the bites until the cheese is lightly browned and the pepperoni is crispy around the edges, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan.
Awesome!! Second time making these. I used marinated mozzarella balls and added garlic powder and oregano
I made these without the pepperoni and added olives and they were delicious!
