So we have been trying to eat healthier and have vowed to have one dinner a week without meat. That is hard for us meat and potato folks. This week we had these Zucchini Pizza Boats for dinner, and EVERYONE loved them!
I loaded the kids up, and we ran down to Save-A-Lot. We are trying hard to stick to our monthly food budget, and it never ceases to amaze me how much I can get for $100 in this store!
I got everything I needed to make these Zucchini Pizza Boats with ingredients left over. This Mantia’s Pasta Sauce is some of the best around. You can’t beat the $0.99 price tag either. I stock up while I am at Save-A-Lot. Plus the cheese is a great price. Their Coburn Farms Mozzarella Shreds come in a bigger bag than other stores. This 3 cup bag was only $3.19! Of course, I picked up the zucchini too which were only $0.99 a pound. This meal cost me a total of $6.19 for six servings plus I have extra cheese & sauce!
Making Zucchini Pizza Boats
I gathered my ingredients when I got home. Mushroom pizza is my favorite so that is what I decided to make.
All I did was slice eat zucchini in half. Then spread about 1 tbsp of sauce on each one.
Top with cheese and the pizza toppings of your choice. Place in a 400-degree oven for about 15 minutes.
They will come out all bubbly and cheesy. The verdict? I will admit, I was skeptical. I know zucchini is healthy, but I wasn’t sure how filling or pizza like these would be. Boy, was I wrong! These were five different kinds of amazing! They were filling and being honest; you couldn’t taste the zucchini. The kids all loved them!
