There is a place near ASU called Cornish Pasty. Someone in our group always orders the Royale with Cheese, but I thought that a shortening crust would be too much, so to lighten it I decided to use pizza crust. I found this recipe, but then blew it by making it with whole wheat pastry flour. It just didn’t rise well. But the filling worked and I’ll try it again.  here is what I used to make 8 pies:

1 lb ground beef

75 grams diced dill pickle

100 grams quartered grape tomatoes

60 grams diced onion

4 slices American cheese

Divide the dough into eight pieces and roll into a circle. Place fillings in the center and fold the dough over. Roll the edge inward and press down firmly. Place on parchment paper on a baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes. Serve with fat-free Thousand Island dressing for dipping.


I have found some 1/2-cup storage containers and have begun filling with just 64 grams of Dreyer’s Slow Churn Ice Cream. I feel that at 120 calories per serving I can have one after lunch and one after dinner.
