Mummy Zucchini Pizzas

These zucchini pizzas are delicious and perfect for Halloween! It's a quick and easy meal that allows you to get those veggies in!

The kids had so much fun making these pizzas with me! Getting them to eat their veggies is difficult enough, but allowing them to make their own little mummies made it easier to convince them to give them a try! After all, it was their own creation... it couldn't be that bad! Right? I was very pleased to hear, "Mommy, this is yummy!" That's right! It sure is!

These are super duper easy to make! Remove the ends of the zucchini and slice the zucchini lengthwise using a mandolin or you can do it by hand.

Add marinara sauce, cut up cheese slices, and olives to each zucchini slice making it resemble a mummy. Bake for about 10 minutes or until cheese has melted. That's it! Enjoy this delicious healthy kid friendly meal!

Mummy Zucchini Pizzas

1 medium zucchini ~ 113 grams (2 Greens)
¼ cup Rao's marinara sauce (1 Green)
8 black olives (1 Healthy Fat)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the ends of the zucchini off. 
Use a mandolin slicer and slice the zucchini lengthwise into 1/4 inch thick slices. I had 4 slices weighing a total of 113 grams.
Place the slices of zucchini on a baking sheet.
Add 1 tbsp marinara sauce per zucchini slice.
Cut the slices of cheese into strips and then make one cut down the center, except for the half slice.
Place the strips of cheese across the zucchini as well as diagonal adding some variation to resemble mummy bandages.
Use the black olives as eyes.
Bake the pizzas for 10 min or until cheese has melted.

* If you want to make regular zucchini pizzas, you can use 1/2 cup or 2 oz shredded reduced fat mozzarella cheese or cheese that is 3 to 6 g of fat per ounce.

Makes 1 Serving
Each Serving provides:
1/2 Lean, 3 Greens, and 1 Healthy Fat

Add 1/2 Lean more to complete your Lean and Green. 
If you do not eat the olives, then you do not need to count the healthy fat. I used it for decoration only.
