Zucchini Pizza Boats

A low-carb meal that gives you all of the flavor of a pizza, but served open-faced in a hollowed out zucchini.
Course Main Dish
Servings 4


  • 4 zucchini
  • 8 ounces ground sausage cooked.
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups marinara sauce
  • 2/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan


  • Preheat oven to 375°F
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set a cooking rack on top.
  • Cut each zucchini in half horizontally, then each section cut in half.
  • Scoop out the center of the zucchini, leaving about ½ inch of zucchini on the skin. Place the removed contents in a medium sized bowl.
  • Dice the removed zucchini centers into small pieces.
  • Add cooked ground sausage, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper to the bowl with the diced zucchini. Stir in marinara sauce.
  • Fill each zucchini boat with the mixture and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
  • Place into oven and bake until the zucchini is tender, and the cheese has melted, about 15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and garnish with Parmesan.
  • Serve immediately.
