Zucchini Pizza Bites Recipe

Zucchini Pizza Bites are a healthy, low-carb alternative to traditional pizza. They are incredibly easy to make, requiring just a few simple ingredients and a quick baking time. Perfect for a guilt-free snack, appetizer, or even a fun side dish, these pizza bites offer all the flavors of pizza without the extra carbs!


  • 2 large zucchini, sliced into 1/4-inch thick rounds
  • ½ cup low carb pizza or tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • Pizza toppings as desired, such as pepperoni, sliced olives, mushrooms, bell peppers, or onions


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it to prevent sticking.
  2. Prepare the Zucchini:
    • Wash the zucchini and slice them into 1/4-inch thick rounds. Arrange the zucchini slices in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Add Sauce and Seasonings:
    • Spoon a small amount of pizza sauce onto each zucchini round, spreading it to cover the surface. Sprinkle with oregano for added flavor.
  4. Add the Cheese:
    • Sprinkle a generous amount of mozzarella cheese on each zucchini slice. Add a little parmesan cheese on top for extra flavor.
  5. Add Toppings:
    • Place your desired pizza toppings on each zucchini round. Customize each bite according to your preferences or create a variety to satisfy all tastes.
  6. Bake the Zucchini Pizza Bites:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for about 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the zucchini is tender.
  7. Serve Hot:
    • Remove from the oven and serve the zucchini pizza bites hot. They can be served alone or with a side of low-carb ranch dressing or marinara sauce for dipping.


  • Avoid Sogginess: To prevent the zucchini from becoming too soggy, you can pre-bake the zucchini slices for about 5 minutes before adding toppings. This step helps to remove some of the moisture.
  • Broil for Extra Crispness: For a bubbly and slightly browned top, switch the oven to broil for the last minute or two of baking. Keep a close eye on them to prevent burning.
  • Nutritional Consideration: For those watching their sodium intake, choose low-sodium cheese and tomato sauce.
  • Serving Suggestion: These make a great side dish for grilled meats or a healthy party snack during game days.


Zucchini Pizza Bites are a delightful way to enjoy the flavors of pizza in a healthy, fun, and customizable form. They’re perfect for kids and adults alike, making them a versatile addition to any meal or gathering. Enjoy creating different combinations of toppings to keep each bite exciting and flavorful!
