These days, even football is different. In the spirit of change, you can step up your game with this healthy game day snack alternative:

Bite sized pizzas with zucchini slice ‘crusts’.

salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup pizza sauce or marinara sauce

1 cup shredded mozzarella

1/4-ounce pepperoni (mini or quartered full sized)

Brush or spray the zucchini slices with oil on both sides, season with salt and pepper, grill, broil or sauté until just tender, about 1-2 minutes per side, place them on a greased baking sheet, top them with sauce, cheese and pepperoni and broil until the cheese has melted, about 2 minutes, before optionally sprinkling with oregano or Italian seasoning to taste.
