Stuffed Pizza Rolls

For General Conference weekend, I wanted to do something fun for dinner. Not that Jacob gets it (he thinks we are watching church on T.v. which I guess we are in the eyes of a 3 year old). So we made these. They are fabulous. A little bit of work, but fun for the whole family. I got the recipe from my Our Best Bites cookbook. Or you can go to their website here. I love their recipes and especially their cookbook! Enjoy!

Stuffed Pizza Rolls
1 roll refrigerated pizza dough* (or make your own)
Marinara/pizza sauce
2 T grated Parmesan cheese (sorry, I don’t know how to make that)
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 oven to heat specified on pizza dough package. Usually it’s 400 degrees. If you make your own dough, 400 is usually a good heat as well. Unroll your pizza dough onto a lightly floured surface. Pat or roll the dough so it’s about 12″ by 8″. You’re going to want to cut it into 24 squares, so just eyeball it if you need to. (I got 20 squares out of mine.) Use a pizza cutter to slice the dough into 24 squares.

Place cheese and desired toppings on each square. (Note that you’re not putting the marinara sauce on the dough- it’s for dipping after) Just eyeball how much. You just need to be able to enclose the toppings in the dough so keep that in mind.

When all of your dough squares have cheese and toppings on them, carefully lift up each square and wrap the dough around the toppings. Pinch to make sure each ball is sealed shut.

Place them seam side down in a lightly sprayed pie pan (or similar sized dish). Brush the tops of the dough balls with olive oil or melted butter (I’ve used both and there’s not much difference in result) and then sprinkle with the garlic and Italian seasoning and top with Parmesan cheese.

Cook them in the oven for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown on top. Keep an eye on them! Doughs vary, so I’d check them after even 10 minutes.

Serve warm with warmed marinara sauce on the side for dipping.
