Easy to make and perfect for back to school!
I love easy recipes. I think my regular readers know that at this point. I love finding ways to make quick food because I have a super busy family. With kids in University and a hubby who never knows if he will have to stay late at work I have learned to roll with the punches.
I try to have some wicked easy recipes I can make when life gets out of hand. Which is almost daily around here. Especially when school starts back.
My daughter’s schedule for school is wacky. Some days she only has a couple of classes, other days she’s at the U for more than 12 hours. So this is something I can make super fast on days that throw us curve balls.
We could all use a little inspiration this time of year. So a bunch of bloggers got together to help share ideas with you for back to school. We have recipes, crafts and organization tips. Sure to help as the school year kicks off.
Be sure to scroll to the bottom to enter this great giveaway. We have $350 Cash up for grabs. That would come in really handy for back to school supplies.
Now on to the recipe. Hop you dig it.
Places to stalk Cravings of a Lunatic!
- 1 package of pizza dough (don't roll it out, your going to cut it into rounds, like you do with cookie dough)
- ½ cup pizza sauce (more or less to taste)
- 1½ to 2 cups mozzarella cheese (more or less to taste)
- 1 green pepper ( you can swap them for red, yellow or orange, or do a variety), diced
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
- Place the pizza dough on a cutting board. Do not roll it out. Instead you want to cut it into pieces like you would with cookie dough that comes in a canister or tube. Cut them about ¼ inch thick pieces (approximately). Lay the rounds on the cookie sheet.
- Spread the sauce over top and smooth out evenly.
- Top each round with mozzarella cheese.
- Toss some peppers over top.
- Place in the oven for about 10 to 12 minutes, depending on the thickness of your dough. Start keeping an eye on them at the 8 minute mark.
- Remove from oven. Place on a platter.
- Serve with a big old back to school smile!
These are perfect for a quick lunch or dinner, they make great after school snacks and are perfect for lunch boxes. When I do them for lunch boxes I leave off any meat, when I do them for after school snacks or dinner I usually load them with meat. Piling lots of vegetables on top is the perfect way to load them for lunch boxes in my opinion.
