  • 1/3 cheddar cheese grated
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground Sage
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried basil
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°.

  • Season zucchini slices with ground black pepper, sage and basil. Pop in the oven for 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Add 1/2 teaspoon of pizza sauce on top of each zucchini. Top with pepperoni with each round. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes or until pepperoni’s sides are slightly browned.
  • Take it out of the oven and add cheese. One side with mozzarella and the other side with cheddar. Top with one slice of black olives on the mozzarella cheese side. Bake for 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
  • Once in a while, check if pepperoni is sliding to the side and just slowly push back to the center using a fork or tongs.
