Pizza Without the Guilt

♥ Courgette Pizza Boats

September.  And it is still so hot here in Dubai.

As a result, I have been looking for light and nutritious options to eat especially after the indulgent summer holidays!  The main mission, however, is not wanting to give up on fun and flavour.

Courgette Pizza Boats

These loaded courgette boats have all the taste of pizza without the carb overload and bloated feeling afterwards.
