Margherita Pizza Zucchini Boats

Our CSA started up again recently and we've had a ton of zucchinis and summer squashes. 
My best friend sent me this recipe and it was absolutely delicious (and definitely healthier than regular pizza).
yield: 2 servings

3 zucchini or summer squash, washed and split lengthwise with ends removed
2 Roma tomatoes, sliced fairly thin
6oz mozzarella cheese, shredded
3oz Parmesan cheese, grated
3 fresh basil leaves, ripped into small pieces
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbs olive oil

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  3. Let stand for 20 minutes.
  4. Brush the zucchini with the olive oil mixture, making sure to use all of it evenly between the "boats".
  5. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese over each boat.
  6. Top each boat with the mozzarella.
  7. Place the tomato slices on top of the mozzarella.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  9. Top boats with basil before serving.
  10. Enjoy!
