Grilled Zucchini Boats-Pizza Style

Grilled Zucchini Boats-Pizza Style


  • 4 medium Zucchini
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 3 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • ¾ cup pizza sauce (jarred or canned)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/3 cup mini pepperonis (or regular pepperoni chopped)


  1. Preheat grill. Medium heat is great. Line with tinfoil for easy cleanup. 
  2. Slice zucchini in half lengthwise. 
  3. Taking a metal spoon, carefully remove a small amount of the zucchini flesh, creating a boat. Note: You don’t want to take too much flesh out, but just enough to allow sauce and cheese to rest in that spot in a later step.   
  4. In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, Italian seasoning, garlic salt, and red pepper flakes. Using a pastry brush or spoon, brush each side of each zucchini. 
  5. Place the zucchini on the grill, flesh side up. Close the lid and grill for 6 minutes. 
  6. Reduce grill heat slightly (medium-low) and flip the zucchini. Cook for another 6 minutes. 
  7. While zucchini is cooking, mix the pizza sauce, mushrooms, and pepperoni in a small bowl. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 
  8. Remove the zucchini from the grill and place on a foil lined baking sheet. Spread the pizza sauce mixture on the flesh of each zucchini. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. 
  9. Bake for 5-7 minutes until cheese is bubbly and golden brown. 
  10. Season with more Italian seasoning, salt and pepper if desired. Serve immediately.
