Normally during the work-week I don’t get to make fun lunches because I am at the office. But today Matt and I took an extra vacation day so we’re at home bloggin’ and that means I got to make something fun Since I haven’t been to the store (for our “weekly trip”) in too long, I had to get creative with what I had left. I still had some remains from the amazing homemade pizzas I made a few weeks ago, so I opted to go the pizza route today.
We still have almost a whole pack of sandwich thins yet we have no pita bread or english muffins so I thought I’d give the thins a try. They were magnificent!
Put them on a foil lined baking sheet and set my broiler to high. Then while it heated up I started to assemble a pizza for Matt and a pizza for moi.
Remember how I made Veggie Kabobs this weekend? Well I dismembered them to take the toppings for my veggie pizza. Sorry kabobs, the stick thing only appeals when you’re straight off the grill!
I added about a tablespoon of sauce to each thin (4 tablespoons total). I could’ve used less, actually! Oh and for those of you who wondered about the sauce I used last time, here she is:
Since I typically add Italian Seasoning to everything, the only thing I look for in sauce is NO ONIONS since Matt sniffs ‘em out from a mile away. Other than that, we’re not really flavor snobs at all. This was on sale, it wasn’t too big, and it didn’t have onions
Then I sprinkled on the remainder of our Reduced Fat Mozzarella Cheese.. I maybe could have used less here, too, but I wanted to get rid of the bag. I hate it when there is next to nothing in a bag taking up space in your fridge! Ugh! BUH BYE CHEESE.
For Matt’s I use the low-fat Turkey Pepperoni as a topping. He likes it! (Edit: I can’t see people wanting to use this as a salad topper, as shown on the bag, but to each his own I guess!)
I also added some of these little babies. I would’ve added black olives but like I said, we’re runnin’ LOW on groceries!
Once they were “built” I put them on the tray to be broiled. I had the rack on the second to the top setting, so they wouldn’t burn.
I left them in for about 5 minutes, give or a take a minute or two!
While they were cooking, I finished dismembering the kabobs I didn’t use for my pizza and stored the grilled veggies away in a container for another use. Sandwich perhaps? We’ll see.
When the pizzas came out, they were just the perfect amount of toasted! Any more time would have burned them! Man, I’m good at timing
I served up our pizzas with a cut-up small apple on the side. Great lunch!
About an hour after lunch we found ourselves not completely full so we decided to eat a big bowl of ice cream each. Hey, we’re still on vacation
Happy TUESDAY peeps
