  • Combine melted butter and garlic in a small bowl. Brush zucchini rounds with garlic butter and place on the prepared baking sheet. Reserve extra garlic butter.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Turn, brush with additional garlic butter, and bake another 10 minutes. Remove from the oven.

  • Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Top each zucchini round with a small spoonful of pizza sauce, a generous helping of cooked sausage, and a hearty sprinkle of mozzarella cheese. Bake until cheese is melted and toppings are warm, about 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Italian blend cheese may be substituted for mozzarella, if preferred.
