Are giant zucchinis good to eat?

Yes, giant zucchinis are good to eat. They can be bitter, so I recommend eating them cooked and not raw. This zucchini bites recipe is a perfect way to use them up!

How to Use Giant Zucchini

There are so many ways to use giant zucchinis. Make zucchini tots, fritters, soup, or zoodles. Grill them or stuff them. You can even grate oversized zucchinis and add them to baked goods, like Banana Zucchini Cake, Chocolate Zucchini Bread, or Pineapple Zucchini Cupcakes.

Low Carb Pizza Bites, Just three Ingredients:

These pizza bites couldn’t be simpler. There are only three main ingredients, plus olive oil, salt, and pepper.

  • Oversized zucchini
  • Marinara (jarred or homemade sauce)
  • Shredded mozzarella

How to Make Zucchini Pizza Bites

  1. Prep: Cut the zucchini into ¼-inch thick slices. My zucchini was very large, so if yours is smaller, cut it at an angle to get big ovals.
  2. Season: Spray both sides of the zucchini rounds with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook: Broil or grill the zucchini for about two minutes on each side.
  4. Top: Spoon marinara and mozzarella over the slices and broil for another minute. They can burn quickly, so keep an eye on them.

Variations

  • Zucchini Subs: Swap oversized zucchini with yellow squash or eggplant.
  • Sauce: Use pesto instead of marinara.
  • Meat: Add Italian sausage or pepperoni to these pizza bites.
  • Veggies: Add chopped bell peppers, mushrooms, or onions.
  • Herbs: Top with fresh or dried basil, oregano, or thyme.
  • Spice: Sprinkle the pizza bites with crushed red pepper.

What to Serve with Zucchini Pizza Bites

These zucchini pizza bites are great for a snack or appetizer, but if you’re eating them as part of a meal, here are a few serving suggestions:

  1. Very good. Husbands loves them.

  2. Looking forward to making these. I can’t use my broiler in my apartment. Has anyone tried them another way?

    • I cut slices, spray with olive oil, etc. and saute on each side for a minute. Not till mushy!! Then top with sauce, a little, and a good spoonful of cheese on top of each slice. Put a lid on and leave the heat on till the cheese melts.

  3. They are so good. I’ve been looking for a couple of healthy snacks and I think this may be one of my favorites. Super easy to make and if you don’t feel like cooking it just pop them in the microwave or eat it like a lunchables.

  4. I plugged this recipe into my WW calculator and it says that one serving is 4pts not 2pts With that being said, I thought this was a very good and light dinner for me to have since it checked off all my boxes. I have always enjoyed Skinny Taste recipes. I just wish your point system was accurate.

    • Hi Catherine. I am glad you enjoyed it. The only accurate way to determine any recipe’s SmartPoints® value is to plug the ingredients into the recipe builder on the Weight Watchers website (Click on “My Foods,” select “Recipe,” and click “Create a recipe.”) which does not count fruits and vegetables in recipes in the calculations as they are now 0 points.

      The SmartPoints® calculator isn’t meant for recipes and will often give you the wrong points (usually higher) because it’s counting the fruits and vegetables. So if you see a recipe with a SmartPoints® value that’s different from what the calculator tells you, now you know why.

  5. Yowzers! So delicious! Made them exactly as written, except for my over-excited salting. I salted and peppered both sides and it was too much. That was the cook’s error, not the recipe. I’m going to make these again! Thanks so much!

  6. Would iit work also with an conventional oven. What temperature and how long?

  7. These were phenomenal! My toddler and I enjoyed them very much. Hoping hubby does too.
