PIZZA ROLLS

i stopped by a friend’s house a couple of months ago, we were sipping wine, wanting a snack and she pulled out of the freezer and cooked up pizza rolls. the real deal packaged frozen ones i used to eat when i was a kid and hadn’t had in ages. i forgot how delicious they actually are and decided to re-make them, with more wholesome ingredients, for the office. they were a hit, and so simple! – joanie

we made a veggie and meat version but you could easily simplify and make all the same kind.

what you’ll need:
• whole wheat pre-made pizza dough (we got our at trader joe’s!)
• marinara sauce
• pepperoni sliced into bite size pieces
• mozzarella cheese
• 2 zucchini chopped and sautéed until they release their juices, about 4-5 minutes, sprinkle with a little salt.
• red onion, very finely chopped
• basil
• parmesan cheese
• olive oil
• pesto (we made our own, but buying it is also great!)

• preheat your oven to 450 degrees and start by rolling out your dough, trying to make it as thin as possible without creating holes. i did this on the cookie sheet so i wouldn’t need to transfer. once you have it rolled out you can start topping! we used an olive oil base for our veggie option and marinara for the pepperoni.

• add your toppings as desired but be warned, don’t over do it! i made this mistake and had to pull some off so that i could make a proper roll without everything coming out of the sides. after topping, i cut the pizza dough into squares and then folded two sides of the square into each other and pinched the edges up. places the roll seam side down on the cookie sheet. it might take you a minute to get the swing of the roll making but don’t worry about it being perfect.

• before baking, brush the top of the rolls with a little olive oil and place in the oven to cook for 8-10 minutes. we sprinkled parmesan on top about half way through baking but that’s an added bonus.

• remove from the oven, let cool, sprinkle with more cheese, freshly chopping basil and serve with pesto and marinara for dipping.

enjoy, they’ll be gone in a flash!

    They look delicious! How would you proceed if you wanted to freeze them?
    Would you sprinkle parmesan on raw preparation? Defrost before cooking?

    good question! i would freeze them before the brushing of the olive oil and the sprinkling of the cheese and then once you’re ready, defrost them on a baking sheet before brushing them with olive oil and baking. let me know how it turns out!
