Pizza in a Pinch: A Miss Murder Cheat

So it was 108 degrees, I was super exhausted, and my favorite pizza place was having phone problems.

I know. First world problems. I realize I’m blessed to have so little to worry about on some days.

So I made pizza. Ish. Quickly, easily, and cheaply.

Step 1. Assemble your motley crew of ingredients. I had cheese sticks, pepperoni, and egg roll wrappers.

Bake for 10-15 minutes, depending on how done you like the wrappers to be. But it was far too hot to turn on the oven. I think the house would have exploded if I tried. So I fried mine in olive oil for about a minute and a half on each side.

The recipe is also exceptionally kid-friendly as long as an adult does the frying. You can do the same things with won ton wrappers, but it’s trickier. Egg rolls are the way to go for this one.

Enjoy!
