Mini zucchini pizza – Super speedy healthy soul food


Mini zucchini pizza is the super speed option amongst healthy dinners. It takes a total of 5 minutes to prepare and is also almost taking no time in the oven. I had a pizza crush on those little goodies, from the moment I was craving pizza, but wanted to be responsible and eat a light dinner at the same time. This mini zucchini pizza is as low carb as it’s possible to be.

Now I am fully aware that zucchini is right there on par with the trend of cauliflower as the veggie of choice to turn anything that is perfectly fine soul food into a healthy low carb option. I am guilty of this myself (e.g. my cauliflower pizza crust recipe), but since it’s so tasty, I am unapologetically so.
