  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 zucchini cut into 1/4-inch thick rounds
  • Kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • marinara sauce
  • pepperoni optional
  • shredded mozzarella or provolone cheese
  • fresh parsley


  • Preheat your oven to broil (500 degrees).
  • Using a large skillet over medium high heat, heat the olive oil. Working in batches, add zucchini and cook for about 1-2 minutes on each side, or until nicely golden brown. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Place zucchini rounds onto a lined baking sheet. Top each one with the marinara sauce, a single pepperoni (if desired) and the shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • Place into oven and cook until the cheese has melted, only for about 1-2 minutes! Remove from the oven. Garnish with fresh parsley and enjoy!
