Pizza Poppers

My biggest struggle for my inner-fat-kid is the unique flavorishesness (new word) of the Italian cuisine called pizza. People all over the world crave the pallet-pleasing combination of cheese and bread. It doesn't matter if you're Italian, Greek, American, Mexican, African, Pomeranian ... We all desire a slice (or seven) of the most famous cheat-worthy meal of all.

But, we can't all afford to give into that craving every time we get it. In those instances, we make pizzalicious posers like this.




Seriously, y'all, this ain't your sister's cauliflower crust pizza (I happen to love making that but ain't nobody got the time for that when you teach umpteen classes a week). This is the bomb dot com.

Ingredients:

  • Tofu-like, egg-like, whatever-they're made from - Won ton wraps

For Sauceless Spinach & Cheese (makes 4-6)

  • Frozen spinach (one bag frozen)
  • Fat-free cream cheese (one 8 oz. block)
  • Garlic powder
  • Italian seasoning (basil, oregano, salt, garlic)
  • Cheddar seasoning/Ranch seasoning

For Pepperoni & Cheese

  • Canned tomato sauce (1 can)
  • Canned tomato paste (1 can)
  • Onion/Pepper mix (frozen blend) (1/3 cup)
  • Fat-free mozzarella
  • Italian seasoning
  • Reduced-fat turkey pepperonis

Directions:

Mix all components of each stuffing batch together in separate bowls. I cooked the tomato sauce on low in a sauce pan first. I cooked the spinach and cream cheese in the microwave for 5 minutes. Then, I added other ingredients as I filled the wraps.

Pinch the corners of the wrappers together with wet fingers (dipped in water). Place on greased baking sheet at 400 degrees in the oven. It took about12 minutes for them to get crispy and golden and scrumptiously super-cala-fraja-licious-expi-aladocious!

You can't mess these up! I'm like the equivalent to a four-year old in the kitchen! Watch this video on YouTube here. Follow my Youtube and IG channel for more easy-breezy beautiful recipes like this. You might catch some behind-the-scenes action from my all-star videographer husband too.
