This 15-Minute Low Carb Zucchini Pizza Bake for One is a delicious way to satisfy a pizza craving! It’s easier to make than most pizza casserole recipes, and you can easily adjust it up to feed however many people you want.
When you’re in the mood for pizza, what’s your go-to? Maybe it’s homemade or a favorite local pizzeria? New York-style pizza is where my heart truly lies, and back in the day I had a pizzeria I’d hit up whenever a craving struck. These days I like to keep carbs low when I can, even when eating pizza, and I tend to get a little creative when I need my fix like pizza kale and paleo flatbread pizza (made with my paleo flatbread as the base).
I make another kind of “pizza”; basically just onion sautéed in a little olive oil with turkey pepperoni with a handful of shredded mozzarella cheese cooked until melted, topped with a couple spoons of marinara and a little handful of chopped olives. That is by far the easiest (and one of the most delicious) ways to cure a pizza craving, and it’s ready in less time than it would take to drive to your favorite local spot and pick up a slice.
But sometimes you want to eat pizza and also get in your veggie intake, right? Enter this zucchini-pizza concoction. Now, I know to pizza purists this will in no way qualify as pizza. But I have to say, it has a lot of the same flavors going on and I’d much rather nourish my body with veggies than feel lethargic and bloated from eating a regular slice. It eventually comes to the point where you don’t even miss the carbs.
Zucchini Pizza Bake
This is by far the easiest low carb zucchini pizza casserole type of recipe! I don’t bother shredding the zucchini; I just slice it up, give it a quick saute, and toss it into a casserole dish. Then top it with tomato sauce, cheese, and your pizza toppings of choice! Give it a quick broil to melt the cheese, and dinner is served.

Preheat the broiler.
Heat the oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the zucchini and cook until starting to turn golden on both sides, about 4 minutes. Turn the heat down to low, add the garlic, salt, and pepper, and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.
Transfer the zucchini mixture to an individual-sized gratin dish. Spoon the tomato sauce on top. Sprinkle on the cheddar or mozzarella, top with the turkey pepperoni, and then the Parmesan.
Broil until the cheese is melted and starting to turn golden brown; serve.
