Nick and I were hungry and I didn't feel like cooking the other night. I had spent some time cleaning out our fridge, however, and found some pizza dough that needed to be used. We decided to make our own pizza rolls and we had some very creative ideas! These were fun to make and, although a little messy, would be a great activity to do with kids. You could certainly make your own pizza dough, but I used a Pillsbury roll of dough, which was easy and quick.
1 roll Pillsbury pizza dough (or make your own)
Fillings of your choice, such as:
cheddar and basil
parmesan cheese and minced garlic
shredded chicken and buffalo or barbeque sauce
Chinese chili garlic sauce and monterey jack cheese
roast beef and havarti cheese
Roll out your pizza dough and cut it into equal size squares, about 2-3 inches square. Work the dough with your hands to flatten it out a little bit. Add in a small amount of filling (be careful not to overstuff) and press the open ends together. You might have to work the balls a little bit to get the ends to seal, especially if you are using a saucy filling. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 12-15 minutes on a baking sheet sprayed with Pam. Enjoy!
