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.

The firm texture of courgette provides the perfect vessel for tasty baked tomato sauce and tangy melted cheese.  Gluten-free, delicious and a great way to get extra vegetables in your diet.  Brilliant!

Welcome to my first ever post on Rena Bakes!

Rena Bakes

I would like to introduce to you my blog which will be a collection of my ideas and things I like to cook and eat!  I am a self-confessed lover of all food with a passion in home cooking.  I get genuine excitement about a meal whether it’s coming home to my mum’s comfort food or going out to an inventive restaurant serving up new concepts and style.  I take on board everything I see and learn around me to create new dishes of my own and by sharing my ideas I hope to get you excited too!  Capturing my creations in photographs adds a further artistic dimension which I hope will inspire you to get yourself in the kitchen and join me.
