INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 cup – spinach
  • 1/2 medium – bell pepper, green
  • 1/4 cup, pieces or slices – mushrooms, white
  • 1/2 medium – onion
  • 1 medium – tomato, red
  • 1 medium – carrot
  • 1 medium – zucchini
  • 1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 1 1/2 cup – mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup – spaghetti or marinara sauce (use our recipe for even more vegetable goodness: Click Here)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Chop veggies (you will need two cups total of your choice of the vegetables listed) and sauté for 3-4 minutes or until slightly tender.
  2. Blend in a high-powered blender with marinara sauce.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  4. Remove the dough from the package and place on a lightly floured work surface. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough into a 1/2-inch thick rectangle, about 12 by 10 inches.
  5. Begin by spreading about 1 cup of sauce over the dough, leaving a 1/2-inch boarder around the edges. If it seems like it needs more, then add 1 or 2 Tbsp. at a time. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
  6. Begin rolling the dough until you have one large roll. Slice into 8-12 slices and place in a greased muffin tin.
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until rolls are golden brown and cooked through the middle.

“Have a few “Sheet Pan” go-to dinner recipes”

We have all experienced those busy nights when dinner has to happen in 30 minutes or less with minimal dishes or its just going to be a cereal for dinner kind of night. Weeknight dinners should be something that isn’t complicated, but can still be balanced and filling. Sheet pan dinners provide a way to give your family exactly that!

When you eat at home, you are guaranteed to have more veggies and overall nutrition in your dinner. If you haven’t made a sheet pan dinner yet, try one this week!
