Val’s Kid Friendly Broiled Zucchini with Mozzarella and Pepperoni!
Val’s Kid-Friendly Broiled Zucchini with Mozzarella and Pepperoni is a recipe that has evolved through the years into a hugely popular zucchini recipe on Kalyn’s Kitchen, and zucchini season is starting, so I’m today I’m reminding you about this absolutely easy and tasty way to cook zucchini.
It was back in 2008 when my sister Val first shared her method of broiling seasoned zucchini with cheese and guaranteed me that all her very cute kids would gobble up zucchini when it was cooked this way. I made her easy cheesy zucchini many times through the years and agreed it was delicious, so if pepperoni is not your jam, just leave it off and make the original cheesy version.
But when I decided to update the recipe with better photos with my niece Kara, we hit on the idea of giving the kid-friendly broiled zucchini more of a pizza twist. That’s how the recipe morphed into Val’s Kid-Friendly Broiled Zucchini with Mozzarella and Pepperoni. And wow. What a great idea it was to add some Italian herb seasoning to the zucchini and throw on a few slices of pepperoni after the cheese had broiled a few minutes.
Kara and I both loved these slices of still slightly-crisp zucchini topped with melted cheese and pepperoni. She thought this would be great to make for kids as a quick snack or an easy dinner, and I’ve already made it again as an easy lunch for myself.
