How to make low-carb zucchini pizza boats

Print this recipe
Even when I’m fully in the low-carb eating groove, there are certain simple pleasures I still crave. Crunchy tacos, a fully loaded sandwich or a slice of cheesy, saucy, pepperoni pizza falls into that category. The recipe below satisfies one of these cravings. Too bad you can’t get it delivered.
Zucchini makes a wonderful base for all of the traditional pizza toppings because on its own it has a mild flavor, but thanks to its shape it can easily made into a boat that will hold in all that goodness. You can even eat these “pizzas” with your hands, just like you would a traditional slice. Add whatever pizza toppings you crave the most.
