We're taking the college student diet to the next level. It may require a little extra effort in the kitchen, but I promise it will be worth it. Our diets usually consist of one (or more) of the following: salad, alcohol, and pizza. Who says you can't get a little protein with your pizza rolls? Here at Spoon University, you'll always be a winner when you're eating one of these with or without a glass of wine. I also trust you to handle a hot oven without burning yourself.

    Cut cooked chicken strips in threes to get six chicken nuggets. #SpoonTip: Pop them in the oven to let them crisp up golden brown as you prep the dough.

    Take a strip of dough (portioned into squares now) and place a piece of chicken strip. Add a spoonful of pizza sauce and a handful of shredded cheese for that cheesy melt. Then top it off with a piece of pepperoni and wrap it up!
