Its pizza night in our house tonight. Normally I would enjoy a couple huge pieces of empty-carb-laden, blood-sugar spiking, then dipping, emotion-high and stomach-ache inducing pizza.
Ahh, a classic American treat!
But not tonight. Tonight I am committing to my body.
....and saving my carbs for wine instead. duh.
|and happy friday to you!|
The process is simple. While I have my families Costco pizza in the oven I quickly prep a few zucchinis. Wash, slice in half and empty out a little of the seed area so there is plenty of room for the good stuff!
Fill with pizza sauce of any healthy type, cheese and whatever else you want. I was certain to use my container to measure out the cheese and olives.... but the veggies? Im being liberal there. Its possible I overestimated on the vegetable portion by a little and that is a-okay with me.
Once all prepped and ready to go I popped these bad boys in a preheated toaster oven (using the big oven for the carb-y pizza, so thankful I have this little option) on a 350 degree temp for about 18 minutes!
The zucchinis I used were store-bought and tiny in comparison to what we Washingtonians grow in our garden- be aware of that! A huge zuc will need to cook a bit longer. I chose simple toppings of just oregano and kalamata olives. It was delish!
21 Day Fix serving is 3 small zucchini at: 1 green, 1 blue and 1/2 orange.
