  • one zucchini cut lengthwise
  • pizza sauce, I love rao’s
  • ½ cup grated mozzarella, any cheese you like works
  • 8 pepperoni slices, you can use turkey pepperoni or ham as well


  • Pre-heat the oven to 400F.
  • Wash and cut the zucchini in half lengthwise. With a small spoon or melon baller, scoop the inside. Please take a look at my notes as I give you suggestions for the zucchini pulp.
  • Now that you have two boats, you can fill them with pizza sauce, mozzarella, and pepperoni.
  • I don’t add more salt as everything is salty enough for me.
  • Bake on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for 15-20 minutes depending on the oven and enjoy.



Please note that these are to be enjoyed right away. You can absolutely reheat them later on but they are best served out of the oven when the cheese is nice and melted.
Feel free to use any toppings you like. Air-fry at 400F until golden and melted but check on them every few minutes. I don’t think freezing will work as zucchini hold a lot of water but let me know if you try.
You can use the zucchini pulp for smoothies, in soups, even tossed in boiling water with potatoes for when you make mashed potatoes. Zucchini are so mild so you won’t be able to taste them.

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…

    Great recipe! I mixed the sauce with some farmers cheese and layered that first before the pepperoni. Will definitely make it again.
