So I’ve decided to share random recipes on random Fridays. Well, not necessarily recipes I created on my own, because I have zero, but the ones which I have attempted to re-create and surprisingly turned out to be successful (or masaya rin siguro kung hindi haha). The title of this post is actually inspired by a Netflix series we’ve all loved watching (if you haven’t, you seriously need to see it), and today I’ll be sharing how I nailed Zucchini Pizza Bites. Ha!
I got the recipe from Easy Low Carb (get the full ingredients and instructions HERE), and when I first bookmarked the page, I thought it’s really easy to make. Although I was a bit worried if I’ll be able to find a zucchini in the grocery near our home, because it sounds so foreign. Haha. But good thing Landmark never disappointed me! I was so close in settling for a cucumber (because I thought there’s no zucchini) but I happened to find one. Landmark is where I usually do our grocery because they got everything, plus it’s cheaper compared to other supermarkets.
I’ve always wanted to try cooking something with zucchini because they say it’s healthy, contains vitamins and minerals, plus it has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients. This zucchini pizza is a great start for beginners like me and I’m quite curious if I can make some zucchini pasta in the future, given that I have the right kitchen equipment for it. Hahaha.
I did not fully follow the ingredients. I decided not to use oregano because I don’t really like it, plus I don’t know where to use everything else since I’m pretty sure that one bundle of it in the grocery is a lot. Also, I just used air fryer to bake these bite-size pizzas because as we all know, condo-living makes it difficult to have a space for an oven. I bought a 6” round pan several months ago that fits perfectly in our air fryer, and since then, I’ve tried a couple of dishes which requires baking. We were even able to make a cake out of this! Such a genius, genius, invention.
Nailed it! Zucchini Pizza Bites [Notes]:
1. The more cheese you put on top, the more it wouldn’t look like the original zucchini pizza. When I made the first batch, I had too much fun putting the cheese that it looked like a mini volcano after baking. Haha! I eventually decided to put less cheese in the next batches. However…
2. It’s more delicious if you put more cheese. Hahaha!
3. The baking temperature and time that worked for me was about 5-7 minutes at 200°C. It looks more photogenic this way. However, I realized that letting it bake for about 8-10 minutes will make it somewhat crispy plus it’s perfect if you overdo your pizza slices with cheese. It’s all up to your preference.
I’m excited to document like this all the other recipes I’ll try in the future. Hahaha! Anyone who wants to re-create this too? :)
