Easy Zucchini Pizza Stacks (4 Ingredients + Gluten Free)
I need to start off by stating that I made separate batches with and without the added salami to see if they tasted better, and since I try to stay away from cured meats myself. The ones without the salami tasted absolutely incredible still. Definitely not necessary to add the salami if you want to cut back on calories and fat.
That said, let’s get into how amazing these bite size veggie pizza pies are. I happen to be a sucker for recipes with very few ingredients and at the same time I am constantly on the lookout for new ways to use my zucchini this summer. This simple recipe delivers on all the flavor and the essential yummy pizza factor.
No salt is added. I used an Arabiatta tomato sauce from a jar and shredded mozzarella but you can use marinara or your own homemade tomato sauce. Just assemble as per my video above and bake until golden – about 22 minutes.

Easy Zucchini Pizza Stacks
- 2 large zucchini, sliced thin rounds
- 1 cup marinara sauce
- 5 oz salami or pepperoni (optional)
- 16 oz shredded mozzarella
- dried oregano + chili pepper flakes
- Preheat your oven to 400 F. Spray a traditional sized muffin pan with olive oil.
- Stack in the slots, first your zucchini, then slather on about 1 teaspoon sauce, then a salami slice (if using) and then top with cheese. I made three layers of zucchini and spread sauce on each and mozzarella on top of that. You can sneak in salami or sliced turkey in between. Don't worry if the stack looks to high – they shrink when cooked. Sprinkle tops with oregano and chili pepper flakes.
- Bake for 20-22 minutes or until they look golden brown on top. Remove almost immediately from the pan using a fork to lift them up from the bottom.
Can you give the nutrient value of your zucchini pizza stacks?
Hi Debra, I just updated the recipe to include the Nutritional Info.
These were so good! Mine didn’t get as crispy but still tasted delicious! I made pizza quesadillas for my son who doesn’t like green veggies. He couldn’t see them! Ate them all!!
Hi Emiko! AHAHAHAHA that’s awesome that you made them quesadillas! LOVE that trick – well played!
I made these without any meat, only because I didn’t have any on hand. So delicious. My son couldn’t get enough. New favorite zucchini recipe. I did want to ask how many “stacks” in each serving please?
I loved this recipe!! They were delicious!! I didn’t use to like zucchinis but I must admit that the flavour was great! Thank you!!
Hi Maria, That’s awesome! I’m glad you are enjoying the veggie! and thank you for taking the time to rate my recipe!
Thx for the nutrient value- is that per stack?
Hi Nicole .. the nutritional value is for whatever serving is listed in the upper section of the recipe ‘box’
So the 18 stacks is 18 servings? So 1 stack is a serving? TY
Yes that is how the nutritional info is calculated here.
This recipe was excellent! My husband and I loved it. Easy to make and great with a salad. It was really a good meal for something lite. Definitely try it!
Hi Robin! Thanks so much for your feedback and for trying them out! Cheers!
How many are in a serving size? I know it makes 18 but is 1 the serving size? Thanks
Hi Mary, the nutritional info is for one stack. If you want to have more that’s up to you!
These were delicious and so fast to prepare. Just a quick question though. is it 3 carbs per “muffin”?
Home run! Wow! And wow again! I made these tonight and they were a major hit! Hubby approved and he had seconds. I’m so glad to have a healthier pizza night! So glad that I saw your reel on IG! Thanks!
Hi Lyn, glad you and the hubby enjoyed them!!!! They do taste like pizza!
I’ve made this several times and, while I love them, mine never look like the ones in the picture. They always fall apart. What am I doing wrong?
Love these ! I put sundried tomato’s in the stack ! Such a great appetizer! Delish ! Thank you for all these amazing recipes ! 😘❤️
Made these today and LOVED them! I had two zucchinis in my kitchen. I used one to make your cheesy zucchini stacks, and one to make this recipe. This was my favorite of the two. It was a little like having pasta, but super quick, easy, and healthy. I was very pleased!
Can’t wait to try these!!!! think I may try them in the air fryer though with silicon muffin cups.
HI Julie, that’s a great idea.. they will turn out extra crispy!
This was fantastic! It takes a bit of time but fun to make. I used smaller zucchini so I stacked a couple pieces at a time. then I used pizza sauce, cheese etc. on the top (because I forgot) I put my ground sausage from Wild Pastures (that I had already cooked) on the top and smashed it down, then put another round of zucchini sauce and cheese. My husband loved them!
Hi Robyn, That sounds delicious! Thanks for trying this out and the awesome feedback!
These pizza snacks had a very good taste, but they didn’t turn out crispy. I even broiled them in the end.
Easy and delicious! Highly recommend. Thank you!
Hi Tracey, Thanks so much for the kind message!
So easy to make and so tasty. I didn’t use meat, but still delicious. Thanks
Hi Bails, glad you liked the recipe! Thanks for trying them!
