Easy Mini Zucchini Pizza Bites

These mini zucchini pizza bites are a healthy twist on the classic replacing the crust with fresh zucchini for a fun way to feed your family extra veggies! Easily use any toppings of your choice to make these appealing to anyone in the family.

The Ingredients for Easy Mini Zucchini Pizza Bites

  • Zucchini. I’d recommend choosing a thicker zucchini so you have more surface space for toppings.
  • Marinara sauce. You can use nomato sauce for AIP.
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese. Use this for AIP/dairy-free.
  • Italian chomps stick. Sliced thin similarly to pepperoni.
  • Parsley.
