These pizza rolls use the same crust recipe, but provide a fun little twist on pizza night.
Here's what you need for the crust:
1 cups warm (not hot) water
1 teas sugar
1 TBSP yeast
2 TBSP olive oil or melted butter
2 1/2 cups flour (I use half unbleached white and half white wheat flour)
1 teas salt
In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, combine the water, sugar and yeast. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes until puffy.
Mix in the olive oil or butter, flour and salt. Knead for 5 minutes until smooth (this is where a stand mixer comes in handy). Allow to rest for 10 minutes.
Now for the pizza rolls, you'll need:
1//4 cup pizza sauce, divided
1/2 cup shredded cheese
any additional toppings you'd like (we like pepperoni and/or sausage
After the dough has rested, divide it in half. Roll each half into a rectangle, about 9x13. Spread 2 TBSP of the pizza over each rectangle, leaving a little space at the bottom. If you don't leave that little space, all the filling will squish out when you roll the dough up. Two tablespoons may not seem like enough sauce, but any more will cause the rolls to be doughy.
Now place your toppings over the sauce and press down lightly.
