Every now and then, it's okay to splurge on a greasy slice of pizza. However, if you're like me, you don't crave pizza just every now and then -- it's a constant craving that goes wild if not satisfied. Instead of gorging on take out pizza filled with grease (and no longer fitting into any of your clothes) enjoy your pizza daily without any guilt or regret with this recipe. Made on zucchini slices and topped with just a bit of cheese, these bite-size, gluten-free snacks are a healthier way to enjoy your pizza.
