Recently while shopping our weekly groceries I came across this new Pepperidge Farm deli flat thin rolls. These are perfect to make sandwiches, burgers and  pizzas in a more healthy way without compromising the taste.

This pizza is simple,easy and quick to make with very less ingredients . So, here I am sharing our pizza recipe which we have tried over the weekend with this bread and it was the best pizza I have ever had without consuming much calories…:).

Ingredients:

For toppings:

  • 4 Pepperidge Farm deli flat rolls (I use the 100% whole wheat)
  • 1 green pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper,thinly sliced
  • 1 small purple onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 garlic, roughly crushed
  • 3 tablespoon tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • salt to taste

Preparation:

  • Heat oven to 350 deg fahrenheit.
  • Split each roll into layers. Place on a sheet and toast the slices until they’re lightly browned.
  • Meanwhile prepare the toppings, start with peppers. Heat 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil in a pan, add peppers, onions, salt and cook for 2-3 minutes. In between add Worcestershire sauce for flavouring the veggies. Once done keep it aside.
  • In the same pan add the rest 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil, red chilli flakes and garlic. Cook for a couple of seconds without burning the garlic and then add the spinach and cook for 2-3 minutes or until they are slightly wilted. Take out the garlic clove before topping on the bread.
  • Spread tomato sauce on each slice of bread, top the bread slices with pepper mixture, spinach and cheese.
  • Bake the slices in oven for just until the cheese is melted.
  • And serve!

Ciabatta Sandwich with Turkey Burger  

 I love sandwiches and keep modifying with different ingredients every time. There is no rule to follow for perfect sandwich, only thing you can do is add and subtract what you like and dislike. At least it hold true for us.  We made this sandwich with ciabatta bread which is an italian bread and turkey burger. And this sandwich was really filling, we enjoyed this with some kettle roasted potato chips and coke.
