This was absolutely delicious and perfect for the pizza oven.

Ingredients:

1/2 red pepper, sliced

1/2 yellow pepper, sliced

1/2 onion, sliced

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 pork tenderloin, butterflied and pounded flat

1 1/2 c. spinach leaves

1/3 c. shredded mozzarella

Preheat oven to 350.

Saute the peppers and onions in some olive oil. Add the garlic and cook until the peppers are tender. Season with salt and pepper.

Season the pork tenderloin with salt and pepper on both sides.

Lay the spinach leaves evenly over the pork.

Top with the pepper mixture.

Add the mozzarella cheese.

Roll up the pork tightly. Skewer the roll with toothpicks about 1 1/2 inches apart so the roll will hold its shape.

Slice between the toothpicks to create individual pork rolls.

Heat a pan and place some olive oil. Sear the pork rolls until browned, about 2 minutes per side.

Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until done.

Let the steak rest before removing the toothpicks.
