When you think of a healthy snack – do you picture pizza? Because you can.
These Zucchini Pizza Bites with Garlic Basil Yogurt Dip combine the delicious flavors of pizza with wholesome ingredients, like California dairy. The result is a veggie packed pizza snack!
You can make these two recipes together or enjoy them on their own.
The zucchini pizza bites make a great snack or appetizer for a group. And the creamy yogurt is great as a dip for veggies, crackers or bread.
Thick, creamy dips are often thought of as high in fat and calories. But this is a light version you can make at home. The plain yogurt base is low in calories and packed with protein.
