Recipes to Share

I've found some easy, CHEAP quick-fix meals that Jonathan likes! We have rediscovered pizza dough in the Walmart section where the cinnamon and bread rolls are. Here's two recipes:

Pizza Roll:
1 roll of pizza dough
1/2 lb lean ground beef
your favorite marinara
shredded mozarella

Roll pizza dough out onto a cookie sheet.
Spread beef and mozzarella over the uncooked dough.
Take the longest edge and start rolling, lengthwise. (Don't roll from the short end or you'll have a really fat, raw pizza mess.)
Cook at 350 for 25 minutes or until brown on top.
Dip into marinara!

Black Bean Pizza:
1 roll of pizza dough
1 or two cans of black beans (I put these into the food processor until mushy)
Mexican shredded cheese
Chicken fajita meat (we buy this in a bag at Walmart)

Roll pizza dough onto a cookie sheet and follow package directions for cooking.
Once browned, spread onto pizza dough.
Sprinkle with chicken then with cheese.
Put under the broiler for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Jonathan liked it with guacamole on top.
