Instead of making pizza at home, give store-bought dough an upgrade by preparing these cheese-stuffed rolls. They can pull double duty as a meatless entrée or as a hand-held appetizer. The deli does most of the work. You’ll only need to invest about 10 minutes to cook the broccoli and stuff the dough before baking the rolls. While you roll-out the dough, steam the broccoli in the microwave. Place the florets and 1 tablespoon of water in a microwave-safe bowl; cover the bowl tightly with a plate and cook 2 to 3 minutes or until tender. For an easy weeknight dinner, assemble a mixed greens salad while the rolls bake to complete the meal.


Whole wheat pizza dough

12 oz, refrigerated

WW Light part-skim mozzarella string cheese

5 piece(s)

No -salt-added canned tomato sauce

20 tsp, (2 tsp per roll)

Cooked broccoli

6 oz, florets

Dried basil

½ tsp

Olive oil

2 tsp


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Bring the pizza dough to room temperature. Coat a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Halve each string cheese crosswise to make 10 pieces and set aside. Cut the pizza dough into 10 equal sized balls and roll out to form an approx. 5x3-inch rectangle. Spread 2 teaspoons of tomato sauce on each piece of dough, leaving an ½-inch edge. Sprinkle the sauce with dried basil and place the halved string cheese along with a few small broccoli florets near the edge. Roll the dough and press the outside edge to seal. Repeat to form 10 rolls total.
  3. Place the rolls, sealed edge-side down on the baking sheet. Brush rolls evenly with olive oil. Bake 16 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5-10 minutes before eating.
