Pizza Crusts, Meal Plans and Repurposing Leftovers

Standard

This past week, I tried a new pizza crust that we picked up at Cost Plus World Market.

I’ve had a hard time finding prepared pizza crusts that aren’t insanely high in calories. I’ve also tried to make my own; but I’ve got a picky husband! I was sold when I saw that these mini crusts are only 150 calories!

On Wednesday, I decided to make one because I was looking for a way to use up the Roasted Tomato Dressing that I Want to Pour Everything that I had leftover in the fridge. I wasn’t sure if it would work in place of pizza sauce, but it was worth a try.

It was so incredibly good! But it was also so easy…

Single Serving Pepperoni Pizza

  • 1 Pastorelli Ultra Thin 7″ Pizza Crust
  • 3 Tbsp Roasted Tomato Dressing or your pizza sauce of choice
  • 1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 10 pepperoni

Layer as listed and bake at 400 degrees for approximately 7 minutes, or until golden brown.

I forgot to use the Italian Seasoning, so I just sprinkled some on top before putting it in the oven.

Rob wasn’t a fan of the Roasted Tomato Dressing. So when I made us each one of these yesterday, I made my own pizza sauce with tomato paste, water, garlic, olive oil and pizza seasoning.  We will be buying these crusts again.

And now for this week:

Food

Rob and I are still on our eat-on-our-own kick like we did last week and the week before. Although it may sound a little strange for us to eat separately, it’s been working out really well! I love being able to eat chicken at home. Neither of us need to plan around each other either.

Here are my plans for this week.

Dinners:

  • Monday –  Running with Rachel’s Husband Dan’s Feta & Spinach Turkey Burgers with Roasted Butternut Squash, Onions and Red Potatoes
  • Tuesday – Leftover Turkey Burgers & Roasted Veggies
  • Wednesday – Greek Turkey Burger Salad – I’m attempting to re-purpose the Turkey Burgers! I’ll use the rest of my spinach, add tomatoes, cucumbers and olives, crumble the turkey burger, add a bit more feta and top with tzatziki sauce and/or hummus. Sounds delicious, no? If it turns out okay, I’ll put it up next week!
    Thursday –  Greek Turkey Burger Salad
  • Friday – Dinner out – TBD
  • Saturday – Off to Green Bay! Tentative dinner at Hinterland Brewery.
  • Sunday – Meals TBD. It’s my final game of the season as a Packers Gold Package Season Ticket Holder.

Breakfasts:
