No, its not healthy, but its easy to put together and get on the table and everyone likes it.

Refrigerated pizza dough (the kind that comes rolled up in the tube that pops open)
provolone cheese slices
Italian seasoning
spaghetti sauce

1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Unroll the pizza dough into a rectangle. Place about 3 slices of ham on the dough, spaced out across the dough, then 2 or 3 slices of salami, then some pepperoni and then the cheese. Sprinkle on some Italian seasoning.
3. Roll up the dough, kind of like making cinnamon rolls, and pinch the seam and ends together. Place on greased cookie sheet, seam side down, and bake about 30 minutes, until golden brown.
3. Let stand a few minutes before slicing. Use the spaghetti sauce as dip.

What I do: Sometimes I have used turkey and you can basically put whatever in it depending on what you like, this is just what we usually do. I've used mozzarella, but provolone is better. It seems that making one isn't quite enough for our family, but 2 is plenty, enough for lunch the next day too. Don't let it burn, but you'll want to leave it in long enough that the dough in the middle will be cooked.

Chicken Pineapple Fajitas

8 6-inch flour tortillas
4 1-inch slices pineapple
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 small, red or orange peppers, seeded, cut in strips
2 tsp Jamaican Jerk seasoning
1/8 tsp pepper
1 TB cooking oil
fresh cilantro
fresh lime juice

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Wrap tortillas in foil
and heat in oven. Meanwhile, coat a 12-inch nonstick
skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high. Add
pineapple slices; cook 4 to 6 minutes, until browned,
turning once. Remove. Cut pineapple into bite sized pieces.

2. Cut chicken in strips; toss with sweet peppers; jerk
seasoning, and pepper. Heat oil in skillet; add chicken and
peppers. Cook and stir over medium-high 4 to 6 minutes,
until chicken is no longer pink.

3. Remove from heat. Combine with pineapple and serve on warmed tortillas with chopped cilantro and lime juice.

What I did: I used pineapple tidbits, from a can instead of fresh. I couldn't find the Jamaican jerk seasoning, so I just made it w/o. It probably would have been even better with it. Justin requested sour cream, so you could add that too.
