ZUCCHINI SLICE PEPPERONI PIZZAS

1 very large zucchini, about 12” long and 3 ½ – 4” in diameter

¼ cup olive oil

1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Dish off the Block Ciao Bella Italian Spice Blend

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

1 cup spaghetti or marina sauce

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

½ cup grated parmesan cheese

½ cup baby pepperoni slices

¼ cup fresh basil leaves

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and coat with non-stick spray.  Cut the zucchini into ½” thick rounds and place on the baking sheet in a single layer.

Combine the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of the Italian seasoning in a small bowl and whisk to combine.  Using a pastry brush, coat the top of each zucchini slice with the herby oil and then season them with the salt and pepper.

Spread about 1 tablespoon of the spaghetti sauce on each slice and then top evenly with the mozzarella. Sprinkle the remaining teaspoon over the mozzarella, followed by the parmesan cheese.  Put a few slices of the pepperoni on each, ‘tucking them a little into the mozzarella cheese.

Bake for 25-30 minutes until browned, bubbly and the zucchini is very tender when pierced with a fork. Garnish with fresh basil leaves and devour.
