Low Carb Zucchini Pizza Boats

We’ve remixed pizza a few times but today is the day we take pizza to another level. I’m not quite sure what level we’re on now but it’s definitely one you wouldn’t find at your local pizza place! This Low Carb Zucchini Pizza Boats recipe is easy to make, keto friendly, healthy, and of course…DELICIOUS!

First, take out 3 fresh zucchini. You’ll want to cut these in half lengthwise, remove the pulp from your zucchini by scooping it out with a spoon, and trim the ends off each one.

A quick tip here is when you purchase your zucchini, look for ones that are flat. If you can’t find any then trim your sides down a bit until they’re flat. Why flat? This will keep them from tipping over when you stuff them.

Next, cook or cut up any meat you want to use. I used lean ground turkey today but anything you would find on a pizza will work great!

Don’t eat meat? Don’t worry! Add your favorite alternative or skip this step completely.

As a base here, 2 ounces per half of whatever you’re using should be perfect.

Zucchini Pizza Boat Mix

In a large bowl, add your 12 ounces of meat or alternative, half of your zucchini pulp (mashed up), 2 teaspoons of minced garlic, 1 tablespoon of oregano, 1/8 cup of almond flour, 1/2 cup of a low sodium marinara sauce, a little salt, and a little pepper.

If you’re not using meat or an alternative, use all of your pulp.

Mix everything together.

Place your zucchini on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for easy clean up and evenly distribute your mix into your zucchini.

Make sure to press each one down so it’s fully stuffed!

Top them with 4 tablespoons of shredded parmesan cheese, 3/4 cup of reduced fat mozzarella cheese, some optional pepperoni slices, and whatever else you want on your zucchini pizza boats!

Bake them on 400F/204C for 15-18 minutes. Add a few minutes if you want them super crispy.

How good do these low carb zucchini pizza boats look?! Not only do they taste as good as they look, they’re super filling, travel friendly, and will last around 4-5 days in your fridge!

To reheat I either zap them for :30 seconds in the microwave or throw them in the toaster over for a few minutes (this will help keep them crispy).
