    Coming from a family that usually only enjoys zucchini in a sweet bread form (wink), these were quite good. We appreciated that the zucchini still had a bit of bite after broiling -- very tasty appetizers!

    Great snack for game day! Used dried basil instead of fresh.

    I love that it's carb free since I'm on a diet. I fixed these for me while rest of family was having real pizza.

    These were REALLY good although messy but some of the best appetizers need napkins!! Need to let them sit for a while before serving.
