Healthy Zucchini Pizza Sticks *Recipe*

As I march nearer and nearer to K's wedding (and bachelorette! ahh!)
I'm seriously feeling the pressure to keep it healthy
So that I fit into my dress

And thus, I've been leaning heavily on the fabulous recipes
Of my fabulous low carb Kalyn of Kalyn's Kitchen
Like this one for zucchini pizza
Which inspired this healthy meal
That satisfies without fat-i-fying (I made that one up right there...)!

Healthy Zucchini Pizza Sticks

4 zucchinis
Olive oil
Salt & pepper
1/2 cup tomato sauce
(more if you like saucy pizza)
1-2 cups low fat mozzerella cheese
Pizza toppings 
(go crazy!  we used low fat pepperoni, basil and onions, but you can use whatever!)

Have your hubby turn the grill on to medium-high
(or do it yourself I guess...I still don't really know how to use the thing)

Slice your zucchini in half 
Brush with olive oil
And dust with salt and pepper

Throw it on the grill for 8 - 10 minutes
Skin side up

Then pull it off
And spread on sauce
Add some cheese
Toss on toppings
And sprinkle some extra cheese for good luck

Try not to spill anything
...ok that's totally not humanly possible...

Put your zucchinis back on the grill for another 8 - 10 minutes on high 

And then pull them off 
And enjoy the melty, delicious, pizza-y
Healthy goodness
