Pizza Bread for Superbowl

Steve and I stayed in to watch Superbowl and made our own favorite - except with some healthier twists. Brown about a pound of ground turkey, and throw in whatever you like. We added black olives, onions, green peppers, chopped fresh spinach, tomato and a little pepperoni for flavor. Next, add either a small can of tomato juice, v8 or tomato sauce and pizza seasonings. Or, you can use dried spaghetti mix. Last, I put in a small handful of mozzarella cheese.

While all the above is simmering, roll out thawed bread dough. If you make your own, more power to ya. Even better, use whole wheat. We were lazy, and used the frozen kind. Add your mixture to the rolled out dough and wrap it up.

Let rise for 30 - 45 minutes. If we'd been cooking it for others, I'd have tried a bit harder to make it look pretty. :)

Bake for 15 - 20 minutes at 375 degrees. You can lightly butter the top and sprinkle garlic and Parmesan on it the last few minutes of baking. Yummy!

If you've got too much, just refrigerate, and reheat for crunchy leftovers. Enjoy the game!
