By this point, you’ve probably realized how much I love my spiralizer and zucchini noodles. And of course I’m obsessed with all thing pizza — who isn’t?

I actually just had pizza for dinner tonight. But it was the kind with thick crust and lots of cheese. The kind that tastes oh-so-good but leaves you feeling huge and overly full. Still full 3 hours later. That kind of pizza. Otherwise known as Jet’s BBQ Chicken Pizza. With cheesy bread. Because there’s always cheesy bread when we have pizza. Are there people in this world that eat pizza without cheesy bread? I felt a little better about it because I had a Hungry Root meal for lunch — they sent me some samples (not paid to say this!), and DANG. That sucker was good. Ready in 7 minutes and under 400 calories. I might be in love. Again – not paid to say this! It just so happened to make my lunch dreams come true.

And then Jet’s pizza made my dinner dreams come true. Ohhhh boy. Everything in moderation, right?

Although I didn’t even work out today because the moderately acceptable daycare had 11 kids in it and food smashed all over the floor. I tried to get on the elliptical but my gut was screaming for me to get them out of there. So I did. Do you think my 1-minute elliptical workout earned me Jet’s pizza? There’s always tomorrow.

Getting back on topic, these pizza zucchini noodles come together in less than 30 minutes making them a perfect dinner. I used mushrooms and pepperoni but feel free to substitute those with any of your favorite pizza ingredients. Red bell peppers, ham, whatever you like. If you don’t have mini pepperoni, I’d cut regular-sized pepperoni into quarters so that it gets distributed throughout the zucchini noodles.
