seasoned bread crumbs

(I added 1/2 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp marjoram, 1/2 tsp of basil to my bread crumbs. I also cut the bread crumb recipe in half only using 2 slices of bread)
First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Now cut the zucchini in half lengthwise. Then scrape out the middle section with a grapefruit spoon or melon baller. Spray or brush olive oil on the inside of the zucchini. Next add pizza sauce and turkey pepperoni.
Finally, top with shredded mozzarella cheese and sprinkle with bread crumbs.
Cook for about 15 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and zucchini is as tender as you like.
