    Cheesy Pizza Rolls

    Source of Recipe

    Cast iron Skillet

    List of Ingredients

    1 loaf (1 pound) frozen pizza dough, thawed
    cup pasta sauce
    1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
    1 cup coarsely chopped pepperoni (about 64 slices)
    pound bulk Italian sausage, cooked and crumbled
    cup grated Parmesan cheese
    Minced fresh basil, optional
    Crushed red pepper flakes, optional


    Preheat oven to 400.
    On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 16x10-in. rectangle. Brush with pasta sauce to within 1/2 in. of edges.
    Sprinkle with 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, sausage and Parmesan.
    Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into eight slices.
    Place in a greased 9-in. cast-iron skillet or greased 9-in. round baking pan, cut side down.
    Bake 20 minutes; sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese.
    Bake until golden brown, 5-10 minutes more. If desired, serve with minced fresh basil and crushed red pepper flakes.

    If you have a favorite homemade or store-bought fresh dough, swap it for the frozen dough.
    Give rolls a little room in the pan to stretch their wings. They will expand in the oven.
    Prefer a crisper pizza crust? Bake an additional 5 to 10 minutes.
