Grilled Zucchini Pizza

I have shared on Instagram stories and in July coffee date that last Sunday we grilled pizza. Yes, you can grill pizza! I used Simply Recipes recipe as a guide and made whole wheat and white pizza in an effort to clean out the freezer before we move. I buy and freeze dough from local Italian bakery.

So… I also had a few large zucchini I intended to turn into zucchini boats which seems almost impossible to happen due to heat or my “laziness”. They just sound so much work, am I wrong?!

Although I did find some time to make these parmesan zucchini sticks and Mediterranean baked zucchini sticks – because, delicious!

I decided to make myself some low carb grilled zucchini pizza (bites) instead to go with a few slices of a real deal. The process is documented in Insta stories and there is also 95% indication you wanted the recipe.

True beauty! My Italian friend taught me to cut pizza with kitchen shears. Is that news to you?

More excuses to make lots of pizza – like this cauliflower crust pizza, almond flour crust pizza,  sweet potato pizza, or oatmeal pizza!

So… I grilled my zucchini pizza and drizzled with balsamic dressing + garlic from strawberry spinach salad just because one reader said she uses it on everything. I followed her advice and she is absolutely right! And as for toppings put tomato sauce on top and just go for it – I personally had to use up frozen soft goat cheese and wilting basil haha.

Enjoy!

How to Make Grilled Zucchini Pizza

  1. Make balsamic dressing (perfect for balsamic mixed grilled veggies too!). You will keep leftovers refrigerated for weeks to come to drizzle on ANY salad. balsamic dressing in glass measuring cup
  2. Slice each zucchini lengthwise into thick 4 slices – think easy to maneuver on the grill.
  3. Preheat grill to 500 degrees F and spray with cooking spray or oil the way you usually do. Place zucchini, close the lid and grill for 2 minutes. Transfer on a platter flipping so the grilled side is up. Keep BBQ closed. zucchini on grill
  4. Now make “pizza” by spreading tomato sauce then topping with basil, goat cheese and tomatoes each zucchini slice until you run out of ingredients. P.S. Please remind me to get a table next to the grill in my new house.pizza dough and toppings
  5. Transfer back on the grill, close the lid and grill for 3-4 minutes. Transfer on a platter and drizzle with balsamic dressing. Serve hot or cold, both are OMG good!Grilled Zucchini Pizza

  1. 5 stars
    Love this recipe, especially since I am trying to cutback on carbs for healthy weight loss. However when I placed my first zucchini back on the grill, most of the toppings fell off…not sure if just clumsy or if there is a better way to keep my grill clean?
    I used left over pizza sauce & it tastes so much bette than regular pizza.
    Thank for sharing this recipe

    1. So glad to hear that you loved this. If you are finding the toppings sliding off when putting it back on, you could try to cut a small portion out of the middle of the zucchini before grilling – so then it is more of a ‘boat’ stuffed zucchini.
