Zucchini Pizza Boats come together in just 30-minutes. Fully loaded with sausage, mushrooms, peppers and olives, it’s a lower-carb, lower-calorie way to enjoy pizza and sneak some extra veggies into your diet.
Cut each zucchini in half horizontally, then scoop out the seeds. If they don’t lie flat, trim a thin strip from the bottom. Place them on a baking sheet or in a 9x13 casserole dish. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook until browned, 4-6 minutes, making sure to crumble the sausage as it cooks; drain excess fat. Stir in pizza sauce and heat for 1-2 minutes longer.
Add sausage mixture to each zucchini boat, then top with cheese, mushrooms, green pepper, red onion and olives.
Place into oven and bake until the zucchini is tender and the cheese has melted, about 12-18 minutes.
Serve immediately, garnished with basil and red pepper flakes, if desired.
