We do love pizza within the Realiz100 Membership and are always excited to see different ways our team and members include pizza within their food pillar. These zucchini pizza bites are a great low carb way to enjoy your favorite pizza toppings! They also make a great appetizer or after school snack that are big on flavor and low on carbs. We love simple and tasty low carb recipes that come together quickly and fit easily into the food pillar within your Target100 weight loss program.
The recipe below provides a template for a tomato and cheese pizza. You can easily add some chopped pepperoni, crumbled sausage, or chopped bell pepper for a boost in protein or fiber. Be sure to check out Liz's Is It Worth It? video when she decides for herself if the zucchini pizza bites are, in fact, worth it.
If you are looking for more appetizer or snack inspiration, be sure to check out these chicken skewers or this feta and avocado dip. We love seeing when you make our recipes by tagging @target100program on Facebook or Instagram!
