Pizza Rollups

FRIDAY!!!!! Anyone else excited :)? What do you have planned? Quick review of my Wednesday-Friday.

Wednesday: Body Pump in the morning, work, to the beach for an hour or so with Jenny (I have on a tube top bathing suit and I look a little nude haha):

For din din, fresh fruit (peaches, banana, apple (rome), pear):
Pizza roll-ups:

I used this 101 cookbooks dough (made with half whole wheat, half unbleached all purpose flour). Basic instructions: roll out dough (or spread with hands). Put down small layer of cheese, desired toppings, little more cheese, roll up. Place seam side down on cookie sheet covered with a thin layer of corn meal, brush with a little olive oil. Bake for 25 minutes at 425 degrees a la Giada. Josh and our friend Jeremy (who came over for din din) had cheese and pepperoni rolls. Jenny and I had cheese, squash and green bell peppers. Next time I will probably stuff them a little more full so they're oooozing like Giada's.


Thursday: Work, taught Body Step, sort of a lame salad for dinner (no picture), headed to Carvel for their non-fat ice cream with Jenny (so yummy).
Friday: Work, teach Body Attack, then ??? Josh and I haven't gotten to spend much time together lately because hes been SUPER busy with work, so we're hoping to do something special tonight.
Will post about the weekend on Sunday! Hope you guys have an absolutely wonderful weekend!

The pizza roll-ups are such an adorable idea. I love the notion of dipping my pizza into the sauce. Kinda looks like sushi pizza!!

so much fun stuff in this post, and those pizza rolls sound really good.

Wish I could just spend random days on the beach! Does the Lake Superior beach count? Haha it's kinda like an ocean! 8-) Those pizza rollups look quite yummy. I think I may have to pick up some Yves Pepperoni and make em!
p.s. Did you hear Kendra is pregnant?!

Mmm, I have never heard of pizza rollups! Love Giada. So cute and clever. Anything with pizza ingredients = a hit in my book!

You both look great in the pic.

Man, pizza rollups...such a cool idea. I need to start cooking again!

Maris said...

Love the looks of your pizza roll ups! I want to try the 101 cookbooks dough now - I bet the 1/2 wheat dough tastes even better than plain white flour.

Jackie @PhamFatale.com said...

great idea. I should replicate your rollups for the kids. It's more fun.

Katie said...

I want to take the boat to the lake this weekend, but my husband thinks it will be too chilly. Party pooper. I'm hoping I can convince him otherwise.
