Pizza Rolls
Pizza Rolls
I have a few disclaimers about these crazy rolls, which I made yesterday on a whim since I had half a batch of cinnamon roll dough leftover from Saturday. 1. I was working with no recipe whatsoever

Ingredients
  • 1 whole pizza crust (or you can use thawed frozen bread dough!)
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • marinara sauce
  • grated Parmesan cheese
  • sliced mozzarella cheese
  • jarred pesto
  • string cheese
  • other optional ingredients: pepperoni, cooked italian sausage, olives, onion, etc.
  • extra marinara sauce, for dipping
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Roll out the pizza dough onto a floured surface until it's a large rectangle. Smear with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Spread the surface with marinara sauce, then sprinkle generously with Parmesan. Lay a couple of layers of mozzarella slices all over the sauce. Smear pesto all over the cheese. Lay on any other pizza ingredients (pepperoni, etc.) that you'd like.
  2. Unwrap string cheese and lay it in a line at the top of the dough. Roll it toward you so that the string cheese winds up in the middle of the roll of dough. Slice into 1 inch pieces and place in a baking dish or iron skillet. Allow the rolls to rise for 20 minutes.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes, until the bread is golden and the fillings are bubbly. Remove and serve immediately with extra marinara sauce.
