It’s important that all zucchini slices are same width so they can cook evenly.Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick spray.Cover baking sheet completely with zucchini rounds, putting them as close together as possible.Sprinkle each zucchini piece with Spike Seasoning and Italian Herb Blend (or whatever seasoning salt or spices you’re using.)Completely cover top of zucchini with grated cheese.Broil until cheese is starting to melt, about 3 minutes.Cut pepperoni slices in half while the cheese is starting to melt, then sprinkle the cut pepperoni slices over the partially melted cheese. Broil about 3-4 minutes more, or until the pepperoni is slightly crisped and the cheese is starting to brown. Serve immediately.
