Pizza Rolls

These are one of our family favorites. I make them quite often for our family, or potlucks, or lunch get-togethers. (I don't know if this picture scares you or encourages you, I overcooked them a little bit.) I made them for dinner last night and Lexi saw me rolling out the dough and said dissapointedly, "Oh, are we having pizza?" And I said, "Not pizza, Pizza Rolls." And her face lit up and she said, "Oh, those are the goodest thing ever!"

Pizza Dough
This is a great pizza dough recipe that I originally got for homemade pizza. So you can use it for that too. Just mix it, roll it out, and spread with pizza toppings. I've made the pizza rolls with Rhode's bread dough too, but like this better.

1 1/2 cup water
1 1/2 Tbsp sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp yeast
1 1/2 tsp salt
3-4 cups flour

Mix and knead above ingredients. Roll out on floured surface.

Pizza Rolls

Pizza dough
5 oz cream cheese
1 lb shredded mozarella cheese
Pizza toppings (we like canadian bacon, green pepper, and onions)

Spread cream cheese on rolled out dough. Add your choice of pizza toppings, then cover with cheese. Roll up like a cinnamon roll and cut each about 1 inch (if you do it thicker they are doughy). Place on greased cookie sheet. Bake 425 for 15 minutes. Dip in Pizza Sauce, parmesan cheese, or ranch.

This looks like a fun recipe Ali. And what a cute comment from Lexi. Thanks for sharing it! The picture isn't scary one bit.

We made these for dinner last night and they were awesome. Loved them. We dipped them in heated marinara sauce. Yummm. These are going to be a regular menu item around here. Thanks for sharing Alison!

We finally made them, and they were great. I used pizza dough from Trader Joe's (their garlic & herb kind) and it was so yummy! Thanks again.
