So have you every had those frozen pizza rolls? I've bought them. We eat them occasionally. They are extremely greasy, fatty and like a million calories for 4 of them. Not filling at all either.
These remind me of those but are like 10,000 times better! I love how they get crispy in the oven, with out all the fat. They are also super easy to handle without all the mess.
These were also very filling! I was completely satisfied with 1 of these bad boys and a side of watermelon.
I thought about making these more like enchiladas and pour a bit of pizza sauce over and a bit of cheese but decided these were much neater. It certainly would have made a pretty presentation that way though!

Pizza Roll Up Burritos
Adapted from Penny-Pinching Provisions
2 lbs. ground turkey, 93%
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
2 oz. pepperoni (about 50 slices), cut in half
1 (15 oz) can pizza sauce
1 tsp. dried oregano
10 slices mozzerella string cheese
10 - 100 calorie whole wheat tortillas
Cook turkey in pan until it's almost done. Toss in onion and pepper and cook for about 5 minutes or until ground turkey is no longer pink. Add pepperoni slices, oregano and pizza sauce and simmer for a couple of minutes to warm. Add about 1/2 cup pizza mix on tortilla. Place 1 piece of string cheese along the middle on top and roll. Place seam side down in 9 x 13 pan. I was able to put 9 in the pan, we just stuck the 10th one on a tortilla the next day for lunch. Bake in oven at 350 for about 15 - 20 minutes until cheese is melted.
