Pizza Swap

Thursday, April 23, 2015




A tradition in our house is Pizza and movie night on Friday nights. Every other night we sit at the table and eat dinner, but on Friday nights we all get comfy and sit on the couch and watch a movie while we eat Pizza! We have been doing it for years and we love it. The kids enjoy the time to unwind and relax after a long week and I love the snuggle time with my kids after we finish eating!

When I started Weight Watchers and decided that I was going to go weigh in on Saturday mornings with a friend, I knew that I needed an alternative to pizza for Friday night. Yes, I could eat just one slice of pizza and a salad, but let's be honest, I didn't get where I am from eating one slice of pizza, or two or sometimes even three! I needed something to eat when the rest of the family eats pizza and I need it to be good and I need it to be tasty enough that I don't want to eat their pizza after I finish my own dinner!

I consulted Pinterest, of course, and found a recipe for Skinny Pizza Logs from Emily Bites and knew this would be the first recipe I would try! I made mine a little different so check out her recipe, if you like pepperoni and mine if you prefer a veggie pizza!

Veggie Pizza Logs


Ingredients

Egg Roll wrappers
1 tsp - Pizza sauce
pinch of Italian Seasoning
1/2 - light mozzarella cheese stick
Cooked mushroom and onion
*or veggies of your choice
Small bowl of water


Instructions



Place pizza sauce, italian seasoning, string cheese and toppings of your choosing on the egg roll wrapper.

My toppings. I put them in the microwave for 30 seconds to cook and soften them! 

Roll wrapper as shown in the pictures above. Moisten the edge with water to seal.

Place on a greased cookie sheet (I used cooking spray) and bake at 425 degrees for 10-14 minutes. Flip once halfway through.

2 Points + per roll

These are great because you can make just a few or a whole bunch. They are also good in the morning cold, just like pizza, so make a lot and refrigerate for the next day!

*one tip, the egg roll wrappers dry out fast and then they break easily while you are rolling them. As you can see in the pic, I did the whole batch at one time, next time I would only do a few at a time so that I can get them rolled up faster! 

You should definitely try these for your next pizza night and let me know what you think!

Have a great Thursday!

    1. Miranda, I just edited the post, it is egg roll wrappers! Oops! I was talking about it with one of my friends and when I said it out loud I realized my mistake! You would feel slighted if you used wonton, they would be very small!!
