Pizza Rolls

Time for another Friday night, pizza night installment! This time, it's pizza rolls!

The idea is basic, easy and fun. My kids LOVE these! Especially since my 6 year-old and 4 year-old think they have "whipping cream" on top. (The middle of them somtimes rises a bit, making it look like a whip cream swirl.) Who am I to crush their little dreams? Whipping cream pizza rolls they will have!

*These can be made using a basic pizza crust/bread dough, OR you can follow the directions for the Wicked Foccacia Bread and have a more flavorful crust/dough. Um, yum.

Pizza Rolls
  • pizza dough
  • cheese
  • toppings
  • shirley J pizza & pasta seasoning /  or your own pizza sauce
  • tomato paste
  • water
  1. Roll the dough out into a rectangle (like you are making sweet rolls). Sprinkle cheese (don't go overboard on the cheese! Otherwise you'll have a big, greasy, mess!) over the top of the dough. I usually use shredded mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Next, cover with any topping you like. You can do half of the dough in some toppings and half in another if you prefer. Do NOT add the sauce to the pizza rolls!
  2. Roll up lengthwise, so you will have one big long roll. Try to seal the end as best you can. Using a knife, cut into about 1" pieces. Place on a greased cookie sheet, or a preheated pizza stone. Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until cooked through.
  3. Serve with pizza sauce to dip! To make the pizza sauce, mix 2 T. pizza & pasta seasoning, 1 can tomato paste (I think they are 6 or 8 oz.) and then one can full of water.
These also freeze well. Put in a freezer bag, and then remove as many as you need. Wrap in a paper towel and microwave for about 1 minute. Perfect for kids lunches or a quick dinner.
