Servings: 8 Yield: servings


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 medium zucchini, ends trimmed, cut crosswise into 24 rounds
  • 1/4 cup homemade or storebought marinara sauce
  • 24 pieces thinly sliced low-fat pepperoni (optional)

Make It

1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil, adjust an oven rack to upper-middle position, and preheat broiler to high.

2. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add zucchini and cook (in batches if needed) until browned on one side, 4 to 5 minutes.

3. Transfer zucchini to baking sheet, browned sides up. Top each round with 1/2 tsp marinara sauce, a pepperoni slice, if using, and a piece of mozzarella. Broil until cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes.

4. Transfer to a platter. Sprinkle with salt and serve warm.
