I came across this video from Tasty Japan on social media and had to share.


It’s family friendly, easy, cheesy, veggiliciousness.

See recipe below- I made a few slight adjustments and included nutrition information.

Zucchini Pizza Sticks

Recipe adapted from Tasty Japan video.  Serves 6 (2 sticks per serving)

  • 1 large zucchini squash
  • 2 Tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 4 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 3 Tablespoons grated cheddar cheese (I like Trader Joe’s Unexpected Cheddar)


  • Preheat oven to 425 °F.
  • Grate washed zucchini onto a clean kitchen towel. Squeeze out moisture and add to grated zucchini to a large mixing bowl.
  • Add grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, black pepper, cayenne pepper, salt and egg. Mix well to combine.
  • Spread mixture in rectangle shape on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone mat (silicone mats are the bomb). Pat flat.
  • Bake at 425 °F for 35-40 mins. Remove from oven and reduce heat to 350°F.
  • Remove, trim off rugged edges to make a neat rectangle. Sprinkle grated part- skim mozzarella and cheddar over the top.
  • Return to oven. Bake at 350°F for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, cut into 12 sticks and serve with marinara sauce dipping sauce.

Store leftovers in refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze.

Note: These sticks would also be wonderful in place of bread sticks with soup or alongside a hearty salad for a Meatless Monday meal.
