PIzza Bites/Turnovers September 9, 2013

We all know that giving our families processed foods is not good for them.  The fat content is high, sodium is quite high  and there is not a great deal of healthiness in any way shape or form.  So, when you kids want pizza roll ups or anything for that matter that is pizza based, make your own.  Don’t panic, they really don’t take long and you can freeze any leftovers to pop in the oven at a later time.

I get my pizza dough by the case at Sam’s club.  I like the dough because it’s versatile, not sweet and is quite cost effective.  The pizza dough out of the store is expensive, not as large as the dough balls and quite high in fat.  With this recipe you can make pizza bites/turnovers of calzones.   Enjoy!!!!  For comments/questions email ramona@lowfatdivablog.com

All you need is some pizza dough that is thawed, your favorite pizza sauce, low fat pepperoni, low fat mozzarella shredded or in slices.

Heat oven to 400 degrees.   Roll out the dough on a floured surface into a large square.  If you are making turnovers cut the dough into 6″ squares.  If you make pizza bites.  Cut into long 3″ strips (enough so you can fold the dough over in half .

Spread pizza sauce with in 1″ of edge of each square.  Place some pepperoni slices onto the sauce, sprinkle with some cheese or place a slice on.  Fold each square in half to form a triangle. Crimp to seal edges well so your filling does not come out.

Bake on a greased, dusted with corn meal baking sheet 13-15 minutes (depends on oven) or until golden brown.

turnoverNOTE:  you can put any combination of meat or vegetables that you have room for in the turnover/calzone .
