Top Review by Atiekay

This was a really good pizza! I used pre-roasted red peppers and added some diced onions to the toppings, but otherwise made it as written. I didn't think the zucchini tasted similar to pepperoni; they tasted like seasoned zucchini.(a good thing IMO) Since they were so thinly sliced, they cooked very nicely on top of the cheese. I baked it much longer (at least 20 mins) and used a thin crust. If I make it again I think I'll add a little extra Italian seasoning and maybe some parmesan. Thanks for getting me hooked on some new topping ideas!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400. Place peppers in a food processor and pulse-grind into a paste. Spread thinly over pizza crust. Top with thin layer of cheese.
  2. Place thinly sliced zucchini discs in a small bowl and combine with remaining ingredients. Toss discs well to evenly coat with seasonings and let marinate. The zucchini discs will have a flavor similar to pepperoni.
  3. Arrange zucchini around the pizza, do not overlap them.
  4. Bake direcly on the oven rack or on a preheated pizza pan for 10 minutes.
  5. To Roast Red Peppers: Preheat broiler. Halve peppers and take out seeds. Place on a cookie sheet, skin side up. Broil until skins are black. Leave door ajar while peppers roast to let steam escape. Place blackened peppers in a paper bag and close tightly. Let stand 10 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Peel off skins.
  6. Can be roasted on a grill - but leave whole instead.
  7. 1 serving=2 slices.
  8. Can be used as a Carb Craver for LAWL.
