Zucchini pizza bites
We don't need no stinking gluten to enjoy a bit-o-pizza!
Just grill some pieces of zucchini so they are lovely brown. I added some olive oil on top first. If you don't have a grill, and don't feel like firing one up outside, you can cheat and use the broiler.
The zucchini possibilities are endless, as some types are much larger and can make bigger slices/bites (that's what she said). I'm guessing you could try just about any squash-esque vegetable.
Anywho, then you pile on your toppings. We went with pizza sauce combined with soy charizo. Sprinkle on your favorite cheese or not-cheese. Pop them back in a 350 oven til melted.
Only one of my kids did not inhale these, but they have a texture aversion at times. The zucchini was not stiff enough and crossed that sensory line. The rest of us looked as though we had never eaten in our lives and were licking our plates clean. It is a true miracle these lasted long enough for a photo. I may have had one in my mouth at the time.
