Zucchini Pizza Boats – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

– Zucchini Pizza Boats – Low Carb and Gluten-Free –

Ok, I´ve noticed that the whole low carb and gluten-free thing have been gaining a lot of popularity in the last couple of years, and with good reason why. Low carb meals can help you slim your waist line, while most people with celiac disease choose a gluten-free diet as their best choice. Now, with pizza being one of the most popular foods in the world (and one of my favorite things to eat!), I decided to create a low carb and gluten-free version. This recipe is above and beyond easy to make, and believe me, it has an incredible flavor. These zucchini pizza boats are addicting! and they can be served as a main course or even an appetizer. This is a pretty basic recipe I have created, you can play around with adding more toppings, such as ham, pineapple, pepperoni or anything else you like. Watch the video or print out the recipe card below on how to create these sensational zucchini pizza boats and enjoy the goodness of pizza in a new way. Salud!
