I started this blog after I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. After struggling to adjust to a mandatory gluten free diet, I wanted to create a resource for others trying to learn their way around this gluten filled world.
2 medium zucchini (about 8 inches)
pizza sauce (make sure it's gltuten free)
1 cup mozzarella cheese
gluten free pepperoni (also check that this is gluten free)
fresh basil leaves
2 tablespoons olive oil
red pepper flakes, for topping (optional)
Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
Cut off the ends of the zucchini and then cut zucchini in half lengthwise. With a spoon, scoop out the seeds of the zucchini.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and line the zucchini on the pan. Cover each zucchini evenly with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. With a spoon, fill the zucchini boats with pizza sauce. Top with mozzarella cheese and gluten free pepperoni. Bake until zucchini is tender and cheese is golden about 18-20 minutes.
Garnish with fresh basil and red pepper flakes. Enjoy!
