Roll our your refrigerated pizza dough until it’s about 1/4 inch think, then cut it into 3″ rounds.
Fill with chopped cooked broccoli and shredded cheddar cheese.
Brush the edges of the dough with beaten egg, then fold in half and press to seal. Brush the outside of the dough with egg and then sprinkle the tops with Parmesan cheese.

It’s the weekend, and it’s hot!! So who wants to turn on a hot oven and make their house warmer? Not me! So one of my favorite salads will be on the menu tonight, it’s great tasting as well as cool and refreshing….
Cucumber and Tomato Salad
- 3 cucumbers sliced about 1/4-inch thick
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar (I use Splenda)
- 3 large ripe tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons red onion, minced
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbled reduced fat feta
- Put the sliced cucumbers in a large bowl, sprinkle them with the salt, then set them aside for 30 minutes. Spread the cucumbers out on a double layer of paper towels, pat them dry, then put them back in the dried bowl.
- Whisk together the vinegar, olive oil, mustard, and sugar in a small bowl, then pour the dressing over the cucumbers and toss until the slices are evenly coated. Cover the mixture and place it in the refrigerator.
- Half each tomato and scoop out the seeds. Coarsely chop the tomatoes into large chunks, then add them to the cucumbers, along with the onion, parsley, and pepper. Toss the ingredients to blend them evenly. Transfer the salad to a serving dish and top it generously with the feta.
