Rice Cake Pizzas Recipe

Ordinary rice cakes get a taste lift with some simple pizza toppings. I keep small portions of the beef mixture in the freezer to quickly thaw for fast snacks.—Gayle Richardson, Great Falls, Montana
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total: 30 min. YIELD:14 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 package (4-1/2 ounces) plain or cheese-flavored rice cakes
  • Italian seasoning to taste
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained

Directions

  • 1. Spread tomato sauce over the rice cakes. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning.
  • 2. In a large skillet, cook the beef, onion and green pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Spoon over rice cakes. Sprinkle with cheese and olives. Place five pizzas on a microwave-safe plate.
  • 3. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 30 seconds or until cheese is melted. Repeat with remaining pizzas. Yield: 14 servings.
