Need an impressive but easy appetizer? These veggie roll-ups contain all your favorite pizza flavors inside of broiled or grilled zucchini. Since they can be served at room temperature, you can make a big batch before your party. Want a spicy version? Sprinkle with red pepper flakes before rolling.

  • 4 large zucchini, sliced lengthwise into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup pizza sauce

  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
