How to Store Leftover Zucchini Boats
First and foremost, you do not want to freeze zucchini as it will become super mushy. You can store the pizza boats in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days in an air tight container.
You will want to reheat in the oven at 350° until the cheese is melted again and the boats are hot.
