I know, I know…I’m such a slacker. It has been well over a week since my last post. As for my last post with food, well…there’s really no excuse. But sometimes you need a vacation from your vacation. Am I right, or am I right?
I just want to send another big thank you to Erin with Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts for doing her wonderful guest post of the vanilla bean shortbread. She is truly a rockstar and pumps recipes out like no ones business…I’m jealous. I’m sure you know by now that one of my favorite baking ingredients is vanilla bean. She is awesome! Check the post out if you haven’t already.
Lastly, one more thing I want to mention before I talk about these pizza rolls. Even though I have not been blogging for too long, one AMAZING thing about the food blog world is how close knit everyone is. Most of whom you might have never laid eyes on in your life! So I just wanted to call to attention this post by What’s Gaby Cooking (love her stuff too!). Please go check it out, and please donate if you can to help Jennie (another food blogger) through Bloggers With Out Borders. Jennie just lost her husband to a sudden heart attack at a way too young age. I couldn’t imagine what she is going to, but even a small donation will help the unexpected costs.
It’s hard to even jump from a subject like that to something normal. I don’t have much to say about these pizza rolls aside from the fact that they are AWESOME and EASY. I typically am a die hard about everything from scratch. But I went ahead and took the easy road and used pre-made pizza dough…which was a good call. As to where I found them….through non other than Pinterest. If you haven’t discovered it yet, you must. It’s ah-ma-ZING!
Stuffed Pizza Rolls
Printable Pizza Rolls
1 roll refrigerated pizza dough (regular or thin works…or make your own) marinara/pizza sauce
2 T grated Parmesan cheese
1 T olive oil or melted butter
1/2 t garlic powder
1 t dried Italian seasoning mozzarella cheese Pizza toppings of your choice: ie, ham and pineapple, pepperoni slices, sausage, etc.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Unroll the dough onto a lightly floured surface and stretch it out to where it is around a 12” by 8” rectangle. Using a pizza slicer, cut the dough it into 24 squares.
Place your cheese and desired toppings on each square (no marinara, that is for dipping). Don’t put too many toppings where you can’t close the roll. Put toppings on half of the squares and cover with one of the empty halves. Pinch all around the square and seal each ball shut. Place seam side down into a lightly sprayed 8×8 pan or pie dish.
Once all the rolls are in the dish, brush the tops of them with olive oil or melted butter. Generously sprinkle the top with garlic powder and Italian seasoning, then the parmesan cheese.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until tops are golden brown.
Serve with warmed pizza sauce or marinara for dipping.
