I've never met a pizza I didn't like! Pizza is one of my favorite foods, but they aren't the best for you, and I'm trying to lose weight!

My friends and I are doing a "Really, Really Big Loser" contest. The person who loses the most weight by August 1 wins the money in the pot. We are all throwing in $25 per person, and at last count, there are 15 of us, so I need to get on it!

One of the ladies in the group passed this recipe along, so I thought I'd share! If you have any other healthy alternative recipes, email me: Heather@961joyfm.com!

Zucchini Pizza Boats

Ingredients (Per Person)

1 medium zucchini (you'll get about 2-3 good slices out of one medium-sized, so how much you want to eat is up to you! I sliced mine into two strips.)
2 tbsp. pizza sauce
8 slices turkey pepperoni
1/4 cup 2% mozzarella, shredded
Italian seasoning, to taste
Non-stick spray


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat with nonstick spray.
Slice each zucchini lengthwise into 2-3 strips (depending on your desired thickness)
Lay the zucchini slices on the baking sheet.
Spread the pizza sauce the length of the zucchini.
Lay 4 slices of pepperoni onto each slice.
Cover with cheese.
Sprinkle with Italian seasoning.

Bake until cheese is bubbly -- about 10 minutes.
