These Pizza Rollups are so easy, I wore them out last fall.  I made them 3 times a week because I got lazy and he’s over it now.  Although, the first couple of weeks he loved them and encouraged me to make them ‘every day’.  So I think he holds some blame there, too.  😉

Seriously, though, they can’t be any easier:  Take a flour tortilla.  Sprinkle an ounce or so of your choice of shredded cheese (we do mozzarella) on the tortilla (just one side).  Heat in the microwave for 25 seconds (or until cheese is just melted).  Take it out, and add a layer of pepperoni (about 6 or 7 slices) leaving some room at the edges.  Fold opposite sides toward the middle so it looks like an open-ended burrito.  The whole thing takes less than 2 minutes.  Serve with pizza sauce for dipping.

One trick about the apples… notice how they’re tucked into one another like a weave pattern??  This is the best way I have found to get a whole apple into a flat sandwich container.  See, my Kid doesn’t like to eat whole apples.  The peels get stuck in is teeth, etc.  So, I have to cut them and this pattern fits even those huge organic Honeycrisp apples.  Apples are his favorite, so we do this a lot!
