Before you begin, you're going to want to rid your zucchini slices of extra moisture. You've likely seen this done before with eggplant.

Simply slice your zucchini into quarter-inch pieces, place in a colander, sprinkle with salt, and let sit for roughly 30 minutes. The salt will draw out any excess water from your zucchini slices and make them perfect for baking. Pat dry with a paper towel and you're all set.
