Homemade Pizza RollsPosted in : baking, food, foodie, funny, humor, pizza, recipe, snack, snacks, Uncategorized on by : Jeanette Rueb
Since it’s football/sports-that-I-care-about season again, you’re probably going to see an influx of snack foods. This week brings you your first installment, courtesy of PB Bars and now some homemade pizza rolls.
Honestly, this recipe is one I just kind of winged, based off of something I had at a Superbowl party, last year. According to my dear friends and boyfriend, the end result was great, even if it was a little messy. I definitely plan on making these again.
The ingredients are pretty basic:
• 2 cups Pasta sauce (I personally recommend something with a bit of body; if it’s watery, the rolls will be a bit fall-apart-y)
• 1 bag Shredded cheese (I used a 3-cheese mix)
• 1 bag Pepperoni
• 2 tubes(?) crescent rolls (the ones I bought made 8 rolls each)
Follow the preheating instructions on the tubes(?) of crescent roll dough, and get your oven ready for action. After that, get yourself a little workspace of some sort. I found that my friend’s cutting board worked pretty well, since I did this at a friend’s house (these ingredients travel well, which is good, since these are best served fresh out of the oven).
Place one triangle of dough on your workspace and spoon about a tablespoon of sauce onto the widest part of the triangle, leaving room around the edges so it doesn’t drip off. Top off the sauce with some shredded cheese (apply liberally), followed by three pieces of pepperoni. When you’ve gotten that far, your creation should look something like this:
Roll it up tightly (without breaking the dough) from the bottom, like you would a normal crescent roll, and place it on a baking pan. I lined mine with parchment paper because I’m lazy and hate cleaning my cookie sheets.
Once you’ve convinced eight pizza rolls to share a cookie sheet, pop them in the oven for however long the package tells you to cook the rolls for (mine said 12-15 minutes, and I used Pillsbury; the extra moisture pushed the time closer to 15 minutes). When they come out, they should be golden-brown and smell delicious. Let them cool for a couple of minutes before moving them from the cookie sheet to a serving plate, and let the game begin!
