Ingredients

  • 1 extra-large zucchini, total weight about 1 lb., unpeeled
  • 1 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt for salting
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1/4 cup marinara sauce
  • 2 oz shredded mozzarella
  • 1 oz uncured pepperoni

Instructions

  • Slice the zucchini into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Place on a large plate and sprinkle with the salt. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and spray it with olive oil spray.
  • Rinse the zucchini slices in a colander and pat dry with paper towels. Spread on the prepared baking sheet. Lightly spray with olive oil spray. Bake 10 minutes on each side, until tender and lightly browned.
  • Spoon a little marinara sauce on top of each zucchini slice. Top with cheese and pepperoni. Return to the hot oven for 2 minutes or so, just until cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
