Pizza Rolls

After 7 years of marriage, I have discovered that "leftovers" are not a popular item on the dinner table.  I came across this recipe idea some time ago and it is always a hit with my family.

PIZZA ROLLS

Leftover tomato meat sauce
1 cup or so of shredded mozzarella cheese
Handful of pepperoni cut up
Generous sprinkle of grated parmesan cheese   
1 loaf frozen bread dough (AKA my BFF)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Combine all ingredients (minus thawed out bread dough) in mixing bowl.


Feed pepperoni to the masses that have come to "help."



Spread mixture onto stretched out bread dough.  (Poking fingers in the top is optional.) 


Starting from the bottom, roll lengthwise like a jelly-roll.



Slice roll and place on greased baking sheet. 


Continue feeding pepperoni to anyone who is left in the kitchen while the pizza rolls bake for 20 - 25 minutes in a 400 degree oven.  


Thankfully some assistants aren't as hands-on as others! 


Finished!

  1. Wow, that's a really awesome idea! Does it matter what kind of bread dough you use?

  2. I cheat and use frozen white bread dough. But I'm sure anything would work.
