Ingredients

  • 3 medium sized zucchini about 8-inches long
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons pizza sauce (Homemade or purchased
  • 1/2 to 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Romano or Parmesan cheese

Optional Toppings:

  • sun dried tomatoes Homemade or purchased
  • thin pepperoni slices
  • minced fresh parsley and/or basil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray ~or~ use an unglazed stoneware rimmed baking sheet. Set aside.
  • Slice the zucchinis in half lengthwise. Remove a little disc from any protruding parts of the zucchini to help it lie flat on the pan without rocking from side to side. Arrange the zucchini halves -skin side down- on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Spoon 1 tablespoon of pizza sauce on each zucchini half and spread it evenly over the top. If using sun dried tomatoes, arrange them over the pizza sauce, reserving a couple for the top. Scatter the shredded cheeses evenly over all of the zucchinis. If using pepperoni, put no more than three pieces on each zucchini half.
  • Place the pan in the hot oven and immediately lower the temperature to 375°F. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the zucchinis are tender, but still have enough body to be lifted from the pan without falling apart.
  • If desired, garnish with minced parsley and/or basil immediately before serving.
