Spinach-Stuffed Whole-Wheat Bread

--Favorite Cardio-Fusion Diet Choices--



The easiest ad hoc dinner preparation possible because all ingredients can be stored till needed: Frozen whole-wheat pizza dough, two bags of frozen chopped vegetables and one jar of tomato sauce. If some fresh vegetables are available they should be added as well.


The stuffed whole-wheat bread is refreshing and light and served like an Italian Calzone with hot tomato sauce. It is so delicious because of its loosely packed vegetable filling (spinach and broccoli) and dry fluffy crust.

Getting Started with Cooking Greens









Take frozen ingredients out of freezer and let warm up: Pizza dough and vegetables.

Preheat the stove to 400 degree F



1 20 oz package frozen chopped spinach

1 20 oz package frozen chopped broccoli

˝ red bell pepper chopped

˝ green bell pepper chopped

2 onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teasp coriander

1 teasp oregano

1 teasp basil


1 pkg whole wheat pizza dough

1 jar whole wheat flour


Preparation of the stuffing:

Mix all ingredients and cook for 10-20 min until broccoli stems soften

Let cool down, drain excessive fluid


In the meantime

Preparation of the dough

No need to work the yeast dough, use as it comes

Spread whole-wheat flower on table and start to rollout the dough to a 10 x 14 in sheet fitting on the baking sheet to be used.

Loosely roll up the dough on rolling pin, place on the baking sheet and spread out.


Making and Baking the bread

Place stuffing in the middle of the dough sheet

Fold the dough sheet one side at the time over the filling. This will result in a double layer of dough on top of the bread.

Bake for 25-30 min on upper rack until crust is lightly brown.

After baking let cool down for 15 min


Prepare a side salad, heat 1 – 1.5 cups of tomato sauce and serve while warm.

Portioning the Leftover for Freeezing




Easy to prepare and delicious to eat. A thinner rolled-out dough affords a longer bread.


I cut down in portion size because, served with 1 1/3 cup of tomato sauce per serving, this bread is filling although very light and refreshing.

Just right length for the baking sheet

Just made it fitting the baking sheet size.


Portioning for a regular dinner.

Divided into 6 medium-sized Portions.





Look at that bread, its color and bursting shape! Wonderful to look at and amazing to eat.


For calorie intake reduction: Use a small slice and only 1 cup of tomato sauce. This portion size compares well with those of other ‘Favorite Cardio-Fusion Diners’.

Smaller portions for weight control.

The 11 small servings will last a long time.
