Ingredients in original recipe

(I took out the flour,
and added sausage and a few more spices)

  • 3 zucchini, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed dried oregano
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and cook the zucchini whole until they start to become tender, about 10 minutes. Drain the zucchini, and set aside to cool. Once cool, slice the zucchini in half lengthwise and scoop out the center flesh, leaving a 1/4-inch thick shell around the entire zucchini. Chop the scooped-out zucchini flesh.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the mushrooms and sweet red pepper until tender and the mushrooms release their juice, about 5 minutes. Stir in the flour and oregano, then stir in the reserved chopped zucchini flesh and Monterey Jack cheese. Heat the mixture until the cheese is melted and the filling is hot. Stuff the filling into the hollowed-out zucchini; sprinkle each with about 3/4 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese.
  3. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
  4. Broil the zucchini until the filling is bubbling and the cheese is browned, 3 to 5 minutes.
New Pizza zucchini boats:
After boiling the zucchini as above,
scoop out innards,
put about
1 tablespoon of Great Value (Wal-Mart brand) pizza sauce inside.
top with grated cheese
top that with pepperoni slices
and grated Parmesan cheese.
Bake about 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees.
I cooked these longer than the top ones because the inside were cooked already in other ones, these I wanted the sauce to get hot and cook into all the other ingredients as well.
These are now my new Pizza favorite food!


  1. Joan, this recipe looks very yummy! Coincidentally I just picked up some Zucchini at my local Farmers Market. I will be trying this recipe for sure!

  2. I'm making them again tonight, have the boats ready to fill. But I'm adding meats, sausage, pepperoni, and pizza sauce, and lots of parm cheese on top, then bake and broil to brown. Hubby loves these! I first used them as a side dish, but he said just make a salad to go with them, so I put my chicken breast back in the fridge for tomorrow night!! Yay hubby!!

  3. If you pick up a cooled pizza zucchini boat and bite it, the pizza sauce runs down your chin. These are soooo good! I would NOT lie to you!
