Pizzucchini

Pizzuchinni

Since discovering that zucchini are a healthy low-carb alternative that take on the consistency of breads and pasta which used to be my favourite foods, I now use it food so many interesting recipes. This one is my take on Pizza that I found somewhere and modified. Its mild flavour makes it a perfect substitute for almost anything.

  • 4 Large zucchinis
  • 1 pound lean beef
  • 1 cup mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup diced onions
  • 1/2 cup green peppers
  • 1 tbsp garlic
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup pasta sauce
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesean
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp basil
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet and add the ground beef, onion, garlic, basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until beef is fully cooked ( approx. 10 minutes)
  3. While meat is cooking, cut the zucchini in half and then lengthwise and then scoop out the centre.
  4. Once the beef is cooked, add the pasta sauce and half of the parmesan cheese and cook for another 5 minutes.
  5. Place the scooped out zucchini into a baking dish and scoop in the meat mixture, top with mushroom, green peppers, mozzarella cheese and then sprinkle with the balance of the parmesan cheese.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cheese is bubbling.
