Bacon cheeseburger rollup

daddy daughter date 035

I like to think of this as our wintertime burger--it's fast, easy, no grill needed...and it fits the bill when you're wanting the burger taste, but not the burger calories!

1 pillsbury classic pizza crust
8 oz uncooked lean ground beef (7% fat)
1/2 C hormel bacon pieces (or 7 pieces of turkey bacon cooked crisp and crumbled)
1 C reduced fat cheddar cheese
1/2 small onion, diced

In nonstick pan, cook ground beef with onion--let cool.
Meanwhile, spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray and roll out pizza crust. Gently flatten dough with your fingers (the goal is to make it a little thinner, but not TOO thin). 

Once the meat has cooled, sprinkle it over the dough, leaving approx 1/2-1 inch around the edges. Sprinkle bacon and cheese over meat. 

Starting from one edge, roll up horizontally like you would when making cinnamon rolls (you want to have a long roll, not a shorter one), Pinch the seam together and place underneath the rollup on the cookie sheet.

Bake at 425 degrees for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown.

Let cool for a few minutes, and then slice to serve! We usually cut into 9 slices--1 slice per serving. Dip in whatever sauce you like. Perfect for little fingers! :)

SERVING: 1 slice  5 pt+

This was good. While I love my carbs, I'm getting to the point where I'd rather have less of a bun. This was perfect!
