Zucchini Pizzas

Our South Madison Teen Cooking Night workshops are off to a fantastic start! The first week, our interns Jenny and Clara made zucchini pizzas with the teens. Everyone was pretty curious as to how to make a pizza without traditional crust…or meat. Check out the recipe below:

  • 4 medium zucchini

  • ½ cup marinara sauce

  • ¼ red onion, sliced

  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes, sliced

  • ½ cup red peppers, chopped

  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.

  2. Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise and scoop out the inside seeds.

  3. To help them lay flat on the pan, you can also cut a piece off the bottom of the “boat” to create a flat surface.

  4. Spread a light layer of sauce (about 1 tablespoon) inside each zucchini

  5. Top with onions, tomatoes, red pepper, and cheeses.

  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until zucchini is tender (but not mushy).

  7. Enjoy!

At Teen Cooking Night, we strive to make dinners interactive and encourage our budding chefs to pick and choose ingredients outside their comfort zone.
