Step By Step  

Zucchini becomes a fun and tasty side dish when it’s tucked together with pepperoni and baked with all your favorite pizza flavors.

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

Quick and simple—perfect for lazy summer dinners!

 

Spring is here! Time to pull out all of those gorgeous spring veggies! Corn, asparagus and zucchini—their season has come. And we couldn’t be more delighted, because we’ve decided to make hasselback zucchini.

Perhaps the most perfect side dish ever, we gave this one a twist—turning it into savory pizza baked slices!

Prepare your forks. Hasselback Zucchini Pizza awaits! Here’s how to make this quick Spring side dish.

Start by cutting four small zucchini into ¼-inch slits. Each slice should go about ¾ of the way through the veggie. Use slow, smooth slices, so you don’t accidentally cut the zucchini right in half.

Now, grab some pepperonis and slice them into halves.

Gently accordion your zucchini backward, opening up the little slits, and press several pepperoni along the spine of your zuke.

The veggie will start to bow naturally backwards. Set it gently on its side on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
