Step 1: Gather All Your Materials

You will need the following materials:
Ingredients
Zucchinis
PAM cooking spray (canola or olive)
Ragu Pizza Sauce
Mozzarella Cheese
Mini Pepperonis (can be found at Walmart)
Pickles jalapeños
Red Bell Peppers

Supplies
Cutting board
Knife
Spoon
Cookie sheet
Aluminum foil
Oven mitt

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.

Place the baking sheet back in the oven for 10-15 minutes.

Step 11: Enjoy Your Healthy Appetizer

Serve and enjoy!
