It’s Wednesday! We’re half way to the weekend!!! (In case you were wondering, I really do love weekends as much as it seems!)
I recently canceled my 5:15 class on Tuesdays, so yesterday I found myself with enough time to run home between practice after school and teaching SHRED. I hung out with Daniel for a few minutes, ate some of the most delicious salsa ever, and then prepped for dinner. On Mondays and Tuesdays, I don’t get home until around 9, so dinner has to be something quick and easy (or leftovers ha). Last night, I had my mind set on one thing: pizza.
No, no, not that type of pizza (even though it is delicious). I wanted something full of flavor, but not full of greasy fat. Before heading out for SHRED, I chopped up some veggies for the pizza so I could quickly throw everything together when I got home from class. I used button mushrooms, stick onions (green onions), and green bell pepper. To the vegetable mixture, I added finely chopped fresh rosemary, garlic powder, crushed red pepper, and some Italian seasoning. I didn’t take pictures as I prepped because honestly, I didn’t think this pizza would turn into anything too spectacular. I’ve never been so happy to be wrong in my life!
Daniel preheated the oven for me while I was driving home, and as soon as I walked in, I threw two Flat Out Light wraps into the oven to slightly toast (about 3 or 4 minutes at 350-ish degrees). I made a split-second decision to spread a wedge of Laughing Cow light on each pizza crust. I put my pizza sauce on next, and then divided my vegetable mixture evenly between the two pizzas. Some mini turkey pepperoni were added on top of that, and finally the entire thing was topped off with shredded cheese, salt, and pepper. Back into the oven they went until the cheese was bubbly and the edges were brown (about 10 minutes).
Ohhhhhh myyyyy gooooodnesssss this was delicious! I think that little extra layer of cheese on the bottom is what made it so good. I could definitely eat this pizza on a regular basis. Check out that cheesy goodness.
Is it just me, or are mini turkey pepperoni absolutely adorable? Of course, I do think any “tiny” food is cute, like these mini lasagna cups!
I hope that you have a wonderful Wednesday! I’ll see you on Friday – hopefully with a new circuit workout (we shall see)!
So tell me…
What is your favorite quick and easy dinner during the week?
