Food Series Breakdown- Pizza Roll Ups

Tonight is Pizza and Movie night. Usually this would cost a pretty penny AND more than a daily's worth of calories; but not when you do it right with my Pizza Roll ups and OnDemand TV.

2 Slices of Cheese hand toss pizza from Pizza Hut is 640 calories and is $3.80 a serving

My Healthy Pizza Roll Up are 316 calories and $1.83 a serving.

I do believe we have a winner! And bonus round.... my stomach doesn't hurt nor do I feel like pure grease after eating the Roll up.

What do you think? Affordable to be healthy? 

Recipe below:

 1/2 lb lean ground beef (I use ground turkey, Italian style)
1 tube (13.8) refrigerated Pizza Crust
1 pkg (10 oz) frozen chopped Spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 jar (7 oz) roasted sweet red peppers, drained and slice (optional)
1 cup (4oz) shredded part-skim Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 tsp Onion Powder
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 cup loosely packed basil leaves
Cooking Spray
1 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
1 can (8 oz) pizza sauce, warmed

In a small nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain.

Unroll dough into on long rectangle; top with spinach, beef, roasted peppers and mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle with onion powder and pepper. Top with basil. 

Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side; tuck ends under and pinch seam to seal. Place roll-up on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; spritz top ad sides with additional cooking spray. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

 Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 5 minutes. Cut into scant 1-in. slices. Service with warm pizza sauce.
