Directions:

1. Cut your zucchini slices about half an inch thick.
2. To remove moisture, generously salt both sides and allow to rest in a colander for 10 to 15 minutes.
3. Preheat oven to 400F°.
4. After the zucchini has rested, wipe off salt and squeeze between paper towel to remove any excess moisture.
5. Place zucchini on baking sheet.
6. Spread a spoonful of pizza sauce on each slice, followed by some shredded cheese (I used cheddar), a slice or two of pepperoni, some tomato slices with seeds removed, and some slices of red onion.
7. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until cheese is melted and the top of the zucchini pizzas start to brown.
8. Garnish with fresh basil and serve!
