Zucchini Pizza Bites for #SundaySupper

No one wants to see Summer come to a end, so we aren’t going to talk about that, instead we are going to talk about all that this time of year has to offer. We are going to live in the moment, drinking up the last of these warm Summer evenings here in New England. Let’s talk about the farm stands that offer the most glorious fruits and vegetables this time of year. When you are browsing your local farm stands what are you seeing this time of year? Well we are seeing a lot of Squash! Yes Fall is around the corner and yes Squash is in it’s glory come this time of year but I wanted to savor a little more of Summer and make something with Zucchini in it since that is my favorite Summer vegetable. One of our favorite farms stands is right next door to the park I take my kids to so when I brought my daughter to the park last weekend I thought this was my perfect chance to grab some of the best Zucchini around.

If you haven’t guessed yet the theme for this weeks #SundaySupper is the amazing Squash! This event is being hosted by Alice of A Mama, Baby & Shar-pei in the Kitchen and Christy of Confessions of a Culinary Diva, thanks so much for hosting Alice and Christy! 

I’ve seen these cute little Zucchini Pizza Bites floating around Pinterest for awhile now so I figured I’d give it a go. This was SO SO SO easy to make. I was able to make a bunch of them, yes I took the chance that I’d be eating these cute little bites of goodness all by myself because my daughter is a picky toddler and my husband, well though he will try anything I make for him, I knew it wasn’t going to be “dinner”. I was so pleasantly surprised that my daughter ate one! She questioned the zucchini at first but Daddy just told her it was my special pizza. My son, well he ate them as lunch the next day! Don’t let anyone tell you that this can’t be a meal because it can be. Leave it to my son to pull anything off as a main dish!
