Zucchini grow so fast. If you missed picking it small, use it for this recipe. My sister-in-law, Joan, makes this without the hot pepper seeds. If you like zucchini, you will like this recipe. My brother does not like zucchini and he likes this recipe. Thanks to Joan who created it. Serve it as a side dish or main dish with a salad.

This is a great recipe but the only issue I have is with the tomato sauce. I really believe this would be a 5 star recipe if the tomato sauce was replaced with marinara pasta sauce or pizza sauce. If you like a little extra heat add crushed red pepper flakes on top. Read More

I LOVE this. I've tried other zucchini pizza recipes but it was cooked in the oven. This is the best recipe I've got from this site. It's fast easy and beyond delicious. Love the spices in it. Read More
