This recipe takes advantage of prebaked pizza crusts and packaged sliced ham, cheese, and turkey from the supermarket.

Ingredients

frozen pizza crust dough

10 oz, prepared and baked according to package directions

lean deli-sliced honey ham

4 oz, (4 slices)

low-fat Swiss cheese

4 oz, deli-sliced

deli sliced turkey

4 oz, breast, fat-free

fresh spinach

4 cup(s), fresh, baby leaves

balsamic vinegar

5 tsp

olive oil

4 tsp, extra-virgin

fresh tomato(es)

2 medium, cut into 1⁄4-inch-thick slices

uncooked vidalia onion(s)

1 small, or other sweet onion, thinly sliced

basil

¼ cup(s), fresh leaves

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Place pizza crust on a baking sheet.
  2. On a cutting board, arrange the ham slices next to each other in a single layer with the short ends closest to you. Top each ham slice with a slice of cheese, then a slice of turkey. Roll up each stack of cold cuts jelly-roll style, then cut each roll into 6 pinwheels, making a total of 24 pinwheels.
  3. Combine the spinach with 2 teaspoons of the vinegar and 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large bowl; toss to coat. Top the pizza crust with the spinach. Arrange the tomato slices and onion slices over the spinach. Top with the cold-cut pinwheels, cut-side up. Drizzle the pizza with the remaining 3 teaspoons vinegar and 2 teaspoons oil. Bake until the crust and toppings are heated through, 8–10 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle the pizza with the basil and cut into 6 slices. Yields 1 slice per serving.

Notes

We make pinwheels out of the cold cuts, but you can also simply chop the cold cuts and toss with the spinach, vinegar, oil, tomatoes, and onion in a large bowl. Spread the mixture over the crust and bake as directed.If you prefer, you can sprinkle the pizza with thinly sliced basil. Simply stack several basil leaves on top of one another, roll up, and cut crosswise into thin strips.
