Zucchini Pizza Boats

Today we have a Freevive favorite lunch (or dinner!). These are quick, easy, cheap, and pair perfectly with our avocado kale salad!

Zucchini boats are not crispy like pizza, but they sure are delicious! I plan to run the zucchini through my dehydrator to see what happens.

Rao’s is  made fresh, with all recognizable ingredients and NO added sugar, artificial colors, preservatives, or anything! You can use any jarred tomato sauce without added sugar or preservatives. Homemade is a plus!

I may or may not have stuck my spoon right into the jar to eat some as I was making these pizzas…

So delicious. This brand is a little pricey, I paid $5.99 for a small jar but still have a ton to use. You can freeze it if you have nothing to do with it for a bit, or roll it over into a few different meals like I do! Zucchini pasta, or you can place it on spaghetti squash, which is starting to show up in the stores and farm markets, put it on chicken with some goat’s cheese, and so on! I think a little goes a long way if you want the convenience of jarred sauce. Of course, making it fresh yourself is always best, but we understand not everyone has time to do that!

I just love zucchini, and I am happiest when I can harvest it from my garden. Otherwise I find local organic zucchini at my farm market or Whole Foods.

I washed it and sliced it down into 3-4 long layers (don’t go too thin or thick, also try to keep them the same size)

Place a little sauce on each and roast in the oven at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes:

Then add about 2 ounces of Goat’s cheese to them and roast another 5-7 minutes

SO SO SO good!

Ingredients:

2 small zucchini
a few Tablespoons of no-sugar added tomato sauce (like Rao’s)
2-3 ounces of goat’s cheese

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slice zucchinis length-wise so they are at even thickness (not too thin nor too thick). Spread a little sauce on each. Place on a foil lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Add goat’s cheese and bake an additional 5-7 minutes. You may need to eat these with a fork, but they sure are delicious!
