We all love pizza. But the combination of bread and mozzerella cheese can wreak havoc on our health, especially when eaten frequently. For anyone with gluten allergies, your options are pretty limited…
That’s why I love these cucumber pizza bites. They are a great snack or appetizer to serve at your next gathering and are much healthier than the frozen pizza bites you can buy at the grocery store. The ingredients are easy to come by extremely fast to prepare, which is great if you’re looking for a quick appetizer before your next meal.
Next time you’re craving pizza, skip the Papa John’s and make these instead. I promise you won’t regret it!
1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
3 organic cucumbers, cut into ¼-inch thick rounds
½-1 teaspoon Kosher salt, to taste
½-1 teaspoon black pepper, to taste
1/3 cup organic tomato paste
½ cup raw goat cheese crumbles
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
Preheat oven to broil. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, add cucumber and cook, flipping once, until golden, about 1-2 minutes on each side; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Place cucumber rounds onto a large baking sheet. Top each round with tomato paste and raw goat cheese crumbles; sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Place into oven and broil until the cheese has melted, about 1-2 minutes. Serve immediately.
