Zucchini Sausage Mini Pizzas (Grain-Free Zucchini Pizza)

sausage zucchini mini pizzas title


i can take a dare.  (sometimes.  not when it involves jumping off a bridge into a mountain river.  ok, i did that once.  well, twice, because my kids did it.  but not until our guide assured us it was safe.  ok, and once into an ice cold waterfall in costa rica.  but my husband says i’m not very good with depth perception when rapid flowing water and large boulders are involved.  and horses.  enough said.)

i digress.  when johnsonville sausage dared us to remake a recipe this month involving six ingredients or less, and include their sausage, i took them up on it.  because i like sausage, and because i’m cooking for seven on a “light day,” and anything that takes less than six ingredients makes me happy.

i found this recipe on allrecipes.com, and tweaked it just slightly (my grill died just before i could make it the way they listed!).  i love how these turned out, and i’ll make them again.

    I made these last night and they were delicious!!!! My family was enjoying “real” pizza while I was cutting up the zucchini (begrudging). But after I tasted them I didn’t even want the other pizza!! Thanks for sharing!!
