Happy Monday friends! 😊 I know it’s cold, it’s Monday and you’ve probably been up since the early morning but keep on reading here , I’ve got something special to share that’s going to make you feel all warm and cozy inside and super hungry! 😉
Pizza rolls! Delicious, saucy, pizza-y and cheesy pizza rolls 😊
Allow me to elaborate. This is my perfectly easy go to pizza dough recipe, rolled and filled, then sliced and baked cinnamon roll style. Only with pizza filling and yummy veggies 😍😍
The first time I made these my family went nuts over them! I added sausages and tomates, extra sauce and lots of oregano. My family requested them to be made again asap so I doubled the recipe and added mushrooms the second time around 😋😋
I love the self satisfying feeling of taking the plastic wrap of off your dough and see it all puffy and beautifully risen 😁
I don’t measure my rolled out dough but something I have to point out is that this is going to be rolled up after you’ve spread all of your sauces and fillings so make sure you don’t roll it out too thin or else the rolls will not hold together. Unless you’re just using cheese and say pepperoni, you can roll the dough out slightly thinner and you’ll be fine. This is combined with the fact that you’re going to have a layer of bread in between your fillings so be generous with your sauce and cheese! 😉
One other thing, if you’re using lots of chunky things like meats or chopped veggies, try not to leave the pieces too big and roll the logs (once filled) as tightly as you can so everything stays snug and secure inside ☺
Fun, scrumptious and ridiculously good cheesy, pizza rolls 😄
