There is nothing I love more than the smell of bread baking in the oven. Okay, maybe cookies baking in the oven...but bread is a close 2nd!! If you want to make your house smell oh so yummy and warm and inviting, please make these. Pizza rolls.
These are pretty easy to make and very versatile. You can stuff them with whatever filling or pizza toppings you like. Here is what you will need.
1 batch pizza dough (make your own OR buy pizza dough at the store)
mozarella cheese (grated or cubed)
pizza toppings (pepperoni, sausage, pineapple, peppers, mushrooms...whatever is your fav)
I used a 9 inch round cake pan to bake these. Slightly grease the pan. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Divide the dough into about 20-24 pieces. Take one piece and roll it out a little bit on a floured surface. Add some cheese and your favorite toppings to the middle. Form the dough around the toppings then pinch the whole ball closed. Place the ball in the pan, pinched seam DOWN. Continue until the whole pan is full.
Brush a combination of melted butter, garlic, oregano and basil on the top of the rolls. You can also brush with a bit of olive oil and your favorite pizza seasonings. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
Serve warm with a warmed up bowl of marinara sauce for dipping. I swear, my whole house smelled delicious when these were in the oven. Who needs candles when I can use my oven to make the house smell good?
These are great because you can put whatever you want inside. Have a bunch of meat eaters coming over? Fill with sausage and pepperoni. Do you have vegetarian friends? Make a pan full of veggie bites. Either way would be yummy. And if you are afraid of yeast and dough, the store bought pizza dough would work just as well.
Thanks for stopping by today, Friends!!
