  • 2 medium zucchini
  • marinara sauce of choice, (I like Rao's brand)
  • grated parmesan cheese, or any grated cheese you like
  • dry oregano, (optional)
  • chopped fresh basil or parsley for garnish, (optional)


  • Preheat your oven to 450F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. If your oven doesn’t go that high, just choose the highest setting that you can. If baking at a temp lower than 450F, your pizza bites may take longer to cook.
  • Cut the zucchini into 1/4 inch thick circles or cut ovals by cutting at a diagonal. Lay the zucchini pieces on the baking sheet.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of your favorite marinara sauce on top of each zucchini piece, followed by 1 teaspoon of parm or any cheese of choice. Sprinkle with some oregano, if using.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, then change the oven setting to broil, and broil for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and golden.
  • Garnish with basil or parsley, if using.


You can easily make these vegan or dairy free by using a vegan cheese in place of the parmesan. 
Try experimenting with other cheeses, such as Boursin, feta, mozzarella, or goat cheese
Make these a bit heartier by adding mini pepperoni rounds or cooked, crumbled sausage. Add the pepperoni or sausage on top of the cheese, just before cooking.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
