Pizza with Zucchini Slices

A friend of mine mentioned a while back that her favourite pizza topping is zucchini slices. At first, I was a bit skeptical, but when my aunt gave me a zucchini from her farm the other week and I was looking for something do with it, I decided to give pizza a try. It’s not that I didn’t think I would like zucchini as a pizza topping, I just thought I’d like the usual toppings –tomato, pepperoni, and green olives– more. Needless to say, it was fantastic! We will definitely be having this again.

Pizza with Zucchini Slices


  • Pizza crust (homemade and store-bought both work) – approximate cost $3.00
  • Barbecue sauce (I used a hickory-smoke flavoured sauce) – approximate cost $0.40
  • Mozzarella cheese – approximate cost $2.50
  • 200-300g thinly-sliced quick-fry beef – approximate cost $3.00
  • 1/2 zucchini – approximate cost $0.75
  • 1/2 tomato – approximate cost $0.50
  • 1/2 sweet onion – approximate cost $0.40


  1. If you’re making your own crust, make this first (if you’ve bought a crust, take it out of the packaging) and place the prepared crust on a baking pan
  2. Thinly slice the onion, zucchini and tomato. Set the zucchini and tomato aside.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  4. Cook the onions over medium heat with a small amount of olive oil.
  5. While the onions are cooking, thinly slice the beef and add it to the onions. Cook until browned
  6. Spread a generous amount of barbecue sauce on the pizza crust.
  7. Add the toppings in any order you’d like.
  8. Bake the pizza for 5 minutes on the tray, then carefully slide it off the tray and onto the oven rack. Bake for an additional 5-10 minute.
  9. Let the pizza cool on the counter for about 5 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!

Makes 4 servings (approximate cost: $2.64 per serving).
