Pizza Rolls

 I found this recipe recently HERE and I love it. Not only cause it taste oh so yummy but they are super handy to be able to freeze and stick in Henry's lunch for work!
  • Dough:
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 1/4 cups warm water
  • 1 tablespoon instant yeast
  • 6 1/4 cups flour
  • Filling: 
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 cups pepperoni, finely chopped
  • 5 cups cheese, grated..I used half cheddar and half mozzarella
  • Topping:
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten for eggwash
  • Italian seasoning
  • cornmeal for sprinkling in cookie sheet (optional)
  1. To make the dough: stir together sugar, salt, oil, and warm water.
  2. Add flour and yeast and mix well. Start with 4 cups of flour and keep adding as needed.
  3. Knead well for 5 minutes.
  4. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled in bulk.
  5. Divide dough into 2 pieces and roll each out into a rectangle, approx 1/4" thick.
  6. Spoon half the sauce on each rectangle of dough, then sprinkle pepperoni and cheese on top.
  7. Roll up as you would for cinnamon rolls and pinch edges to seal.
  8. Place rolls in a parchment lined pan sprinkled with cornmeal. If you don't have a pan large enough you can make these rolls in smaller sizes. 
  9. Brush slightly beaten egg over the rolls and sprinkle with Italian seasoning.
  10. Bake at 400º for 30 minutes, till golden brown.
* These rolls never seal completely for me and they kind of fall in after baking but nobody here seems to mind if some of the filling oozes out and the rolls flatten a bit:) 











Oh, and if you do decide to make these, make sure to watch out for the cheese thief! :)

  1. Lol @ Silas helping himself to the cheese. How adorable and smart. :)

    Ever since my Grandma Jean gave Chloe and Hayden and I the Mennonite Girls Can Cook book, we have baked from it almost exclusively. Actually, we think the book would be better titled "Mennonite Women Can Bake," because y'know, the baking is the highlight. :D If you haven't yet, you should try their perishky (fruit pockets) recipe. It is so much yum. Those could easily be frozen for lunches as well.
