These bite-size pizzas are the perfect lunch for adults and kids alike. They are low-carb (hurray for us!) and a great way to get kids to eat more veggies. The bonus is that they are ready to eat in less than 10 minutes! Seriously!
Veggies are not on the top of our kids’ list of things to eat and they certainly wouldn’t trade a pizza for a plate of veggies!
But not with these Zucchini Pizza Bites! They are everything kids love about a pizza: the cheese, sauce, and toppings but on a veggie crust. This way they enjoy the flavors they love while getting a dose of veggies.
I know, I know. Zucchinis still have a “green” skin so they might fall into the green food category. I get it. If this is the case, either purchase yellow zucchinis or, simply peel it!
Now it’s white. So this veggie just turned into white foods. Like chicken, potatoes, pasta, rice, bread… yeah, you get it.
How to Make Zucchini Pizza Bites
What I love about this recipe is that this pizza also requires minimal effort on your part, since it is made with sliced zucchini, pizza, sauce, cheese, and toppings! What did I tell you… easy peasy.
I’m all about easy when it comes to sharing great meals with fresh ingredients with my kids!
