Easy Pizza Rolls Recipe
Before you start this easy pizza rolls recipe, preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Then lightly grease a baking sheet and set it aside.
Have you ever tried those refrigerated crescent rolls in a tube? In the same section of the store, you can find refrigerated pizza dough crust in a tube. You just unroll it and use. So easy! Unroll a tube of refrigerated pizza crust onto a large cutting board.
Spread ⅔ cup of pizza sauce over the dough. You don't want to use too much or it will come out of the sides when you roll the dough.
Sprinkle with 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese.
Carefully roll the pizza dough to make a log shape.Pinch the ends of the dough and slice into individual pieces using a pizza cutter or knife.
Bake at 425 for 15-20 minutes until the cheese is melted and rolls are a light golden brown. If the rolls start to brown early, just pop some foil on top for the remainder of the cooking time.
When they come out of the oven, sprinkle with a dash of dried basil. Serve with a side of pizza sauce for dipping. For a fun variation, try adding some chopped pepperoni before you roll up the dough.
I love these pizza rolls from Spaceships and Laser Beams that kids can pack in a lunch box. They use crescent rolls and cheddar cheese, but the results are every bit as tasty as our pizza rolls.
