  • 1 pounds - pizza dough, preferably whole wheat
  • 16 slices - pepperoni
  • 8 - mushrooms, halved
  • 1/2 - large green bell pepper, cut into 16 pieces (1-inch)
  • 4 ounces - smoked fresh mozzarella OR smoked Gouda, cut into 16 cubes (1-inch)
  • 1 cups - lower-sodium marinara sauce, divided
  • 1 tablespoons - extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoons - dried oregano OR basil
  • Directions:

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

    Cut pizza dough into 8 equal portions. Let rest on a lightly floured surface while you assemble the skewers.

    Thread 2 pepperoni, 2 mushroom halves, 2 pepper pieces, and 2 cheese cubes alternately onto eight 6-inch skewers.

    Stretch and pat each portion of dough into a rectangle approximately 4 inches by 6 inches. Spread 1-1/2 teaspoons sauce on each portion of dough. Place one skewer on each piece of dough, wrap the dough around the skewer and pinch to seal.

    Place the skewers seam-side down on the prepared baking sheet. Brush with oil and sprinkle with oregano (or basil).

    Bake until golden, about 15 to 17 minutes. Serve with remaining marinara for dipping.
