Dashing Dish features a recipe considered as a treat with only 30 calories in each of its dish. This recipe is already a winner of the title of “Family Tested and Approved” given by the Just a Pinch Recipe Club. Other than these facts, this pizza is really easy to make!


Ingredients


1/2 cup Shredded mozzarella cheese

1/2 cup Pizza sauce (or tomato sauce)

20           Turkey pepperonis

24           Wonton wrappers

1/8 cup Parmesan cheese

1 tsp      Basil/oregano mix or Italian seasoning

1/2 tsp  Garlic powder

Pinch     Sweetener (stevia or splenda)

Pinch     Black Pepper

Optional               1/3 cup Chicken breast, diced or 1/3 cup light italian sausage


Directions:


1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper, or foil coated with non-stick cooking spray. Gather ingredients.

2. Pour pizza sauce, (or tomato paste) and mozzarella cheese in a medium bowl

3. Slice the pepperoni into quarters, and add them to the sauce/cheese mixture.  Stir until combined.

4. Next, add the seasonings. Stir again until everything is well combined.

5. To begin filling wonton wrappers, I find it easiest to create an ‘assembly line’. I did this by stacking my wonton wrappers, and having my filling, and a small bowl of water near by to ’seal’ the wrappers shut.

6. Then, begin filling by placing about a tablespoon of filling in the center of each wrapper. You could use a little more or less, just try not to over-fill them, or the filling will ooze out the sides when you are baking them.

7. To seal them shut, place your finger in the water…

8. Then trace two of the corners with the water.

9. Fold the wrapper in half to meet the two dry corners with the two wet corners.

10. Press to seal the two sides together. (Note: the water acts like glue to seal the corners shut!)

11. I decided to do half of my pizza rolls with chicken, and half without… So I added my chicken to my sauce mixture after making half of my pizza rolls with just pepperoni.

12. And I continued making my pizza rolls until all of my wonton wrappers were filled. (Note: You may be able to fill even more than 24 wrappers depending on how much filling you use in each one!)

13. When wonton wrappers are filled, give them a light spray with non-stick cooking spray and sprinkle parmesan cheese over the top of each one.

14. Lay pizza rolls out on prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven (450 degrees) for 10-15 minutes, or until the tops are lightly golden brown.

15. Serve warm and enjoy!
