Recipe: How to Make Easy Low Carb Zucchini Pizza Bites

You are going to love these Zucchini Pizza Bites as a way to use up all the zucchini growing in your garden or in your neighbor's garden! 

We accidentally planted two extra zucchini plants this summer.  We started our plants by seed in April and two plants were accidentally labeled "pumpkins" only they turned out to be zucchini plants.   

With that being said, we have had an abundance of zucchini from our garden and I needed to find a new way to enjoy this summer vegetable.  I made these Zucchini Pizza Bites last week as a low-carb side dish and let me tell you, they were AMAZING.  


Zucchini Pizza Bites is a perfect way to use up all the zucchini that maybe got a little too big in your garden while satisfying your need for pizza without all the calories or carbs.  They're great for lunch too or as a side dish to grilled chicken.
