It was lunch-time yesterday, and I had several zucchini in my fridge, staring at me.

I decided to try a new, low-carb pepperoni pizza recipe.  These pepperoni pizza zoodles took only a few minutes to make and tasted just like pepperoni pizza.  This was a fabulous lunch.

I love my vegetable spiralizer.  I use this one.   These noodles just take a minute or two to make.

Zoodles take hardly any time to cook.  I have found, that sauteing them in a skillet, until they turn tender usually does the trick.   Once the zoodles turned slightly tender, I added pasta sauce and let the mixture bubble for a few minutes before adding the “pizza toppings.”
