Step 1: Gather All Your Materials
You will need the following materials:
PAM cooking spray (canola or olive)
Ragu Pizza Sauce
Mini Pepperonis (can be found at Walmart)
Red Bell Peppers
Step 2: Prepare Your Oven
Preheat your oven at 350 degrees.
Step 3: Wash All Fruits/Vegetables
Ensure that all food and cooking supplies are clean prior to making or preparing the zucchini pizzas.
Step 4: Preparing a Baking Sheet
Completely cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray with PAM cooking spray.
Step 5: Preparing the Food
Cut both ends of a whole zucchini and then cut lengthwise as shown on the pictures.
Step 6: Getting Ready to Bake
Lay the zucchinis flat side down and bake for 10 minutes.
Step 7: While the Zucchinis Are Baking....
Get all your toppings ready. Dice/cut the bell pepper and pickled jalapeños while the zucchinis are baking during their initial 10 minutes. Remove the bell pepper seeds and cut into small pieces. Depending on whether you like spicy food or not, you can remove the jalapeño seeds.
Step 8: Flip the Zucchinis Over
After the zucchinis have baked at a temperature of 350 degrees for 10 minutes, remove them from the oven and flip over. Continue to bake for another 8-10 minutes.
Step 9: Adding the Toppings
For the final steps, using a spoon spread Ragu pizza sauce all over the flat side of the zucchinis. Add mozzarella (for a healthier choice add very little cheese) on top of the Ragu sauce. Distribute 4-5 mini Pepperonis per zucchini. Place diced bell pepper on the zucchinis. Finally, add 1-2 slices of jalapeños.
Step 10: Bake for 5-10 Minutes at 350 Degrees.
