As the school year begins anew, it’s always nice to stock the freezer with some easy grab-‘n-go options for school lunches and those hectic evenings filled with extracurricular activities. One of my family’s favorites is homemade pizza rolls. They don’t seem to last long, so I always make a double or triple batch.
- 1 (16 oz) homemade or frozen pizza dough, thawed
- 2 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- Assorted toppings: pepperoni, sausage, Canadian bacon, onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, olives, pineapples . . .
- 8 ounces mozzarella, grated
- marinara sauce (optional), for dipping when serving
Preheat oven to 400°
Roll dough into a 14-inch circle and brush with olive oil.
Cut circle into eight wedges. Add cheese and desired toppings, then roll-up each wedge from outside to center.
Place rolls on parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool completely before freezing.
Reheat in the oven or microwave. I like to serve these with marinara sauce for dipping, but that is optional.
