This easy cheesy recipe gets a fiber boost from broccoli. Thinking about whipping up a more date-friendly version? Ditch the garlic and it'll STILL rock!

3 cups small broccoli florets
1 package Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crust refrigerated dough
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1 tbsp. minced garlic
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Place broccoli in a large microwave safe bowl. Add 2 tbsp. water, cover, and microwave for 4 minutes, or until tender. Drain any excess liquid and blot dry.

Thinly and evenly stretch or roll out dough on the baking sheet into a large rectangle, at least 14 inches by 10 inches.

Spread dough with pizza sauce, and sprinkle with garlic. Evenly top with broccoli, and sprinkle with cheese.

Bake until crust is golden brown and cheese has melted, about 10 minutes. Slice and enjoy!

Hot, gooey, and full of classic pizza flavors... This dip is more than just party ready -- it's a party all by itself!


One 8-oz. tub fat-free cream cheese
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
3/4 cup pizza sauce
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 cup frozen ground-beef-style soy crumbles (like the kind by Boca or MorningStar Farms)
1 cup finely chopped mushrooms
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
3/4 cup finely chopped bell pepper
15 slices turkey pepperoni (Hormel's is best!), chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8" X 8" baking pan with nonstick spray.

In a large bowl, stir cream cheese until smooth. Add mozzarella cheese, pizza sauce, and 1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder. Stir until uniform.

Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add soy crumbles and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 tsp. garlic powder. Cook and stir until hot, 2 - 4 minutes.

Add the hot soy crumbles to the large bowl, and stir well. Remove skillet from heat and clean, if needed. Re-spray and return to medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, onion, and bell pepper. Cook and stir until softened, 6 - 8 minutes.

Transfer cooked veggies to a medium bowl, and blot away excess moisture. Stir veggies into the cream cheese mixture.

Add half of the chopped pepperoni, and stir well. Transfer to the baking pan.

Top with remaining chopped pepperoni. Bake until hot, about 15 minutes. Mmmmm!
