Pizza Rolls Recipe
ITALIAN RECIPE: Since I've discovered these heavenly treats I’ve been dreaming up some new ingredients to add, like Pepperoni or Cherry Tomatoes.
The first time I made them, they completely fell apart as I was rolling and cutting. I still baked them, but they weren’t appetizing. It looked like something that came out of... you got it right? I don't need to end the sentence, do I?
I blamed the Flour.
The second time, I burnt them to a black crisp.
I blamed the Oven.
Third time’s a charm. Crispy on the bottom, tender on the inside, super cheesy, and packed with Mozarella Cheese.
I blamed myself.
Pizza rolls are easy and fast. It's basically Pizza... with a twist on the shape. That's all.
My homemade pizza crust is the dough you’ll be using, the traditional Neapolitan Pizza Dough Recipe.
Little TIP if you wanna try: roll out the super soft dough, make dents in it with your fingers, and brush with olive oil. Why? those last two steps are to avoid bubbles and sogginess. Just like you do with cinnamon rolls, you will top this dough with a filling before rolling it up.
Fill with your favorite pizza toppings. I simply used pizza sauce, ground basil and mozzarella cheese.
Roll it up into two logs and chill for 25 minutes.
Chilling will prevent your rolls from falling apart as you cut. Pizza sauce is liquid and it will create a huge mess and your fillings will go all over the place if you do not chill.
No questions asked, you gotta chill it!
During that time, preheat your oven. You want the entire oven to be hot and ready.
Cut the logs into 12 rolls each. Dip the bottom of the rolls in to cornmeal ( or Flour ), just as you do with my pizza recipes. Why? This creates a crunchy, crispy texture on the bottom.
Top with some parmesan cheese and bake into crispy, melty perfection.
