Pizza…Ready When You Are
Your kids will love this super-easy, totally convenient dinner. It really does taste like pizza, but with less fat and no trip to the pizza shop. We used turkey pepperoni in our version to further lower the fat content.
Five minutes’ prep in the morning, and dinner’s ready when you walk in the door 10 hours later. Serve this with a green vegetable or salad on the side, and spiced apples for dessert.
