Stuffed Pizza Rolls

I was just browsing through some photos from last month and I found the photos of these Stuffed Pizza Rolls. I can't believe I forgot to post them!  I made them one day for my kids for lunch.  My kids are forever wanting me to buy the prepackaged pizza rolls, but I know those are so incredibly bad for them.  These might not be health food exactly, but I feel much better about serving them.  I think that they taste oh so much better too.

Here is what you will need:

Stuffed Pizza Rolls

1 roll Refrigerated Pizza Crust (thin crust)
Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
Pizza Toppings of you choice- I kept it simple this time with just pepperoni that I diced up per my childrens' request
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
2 Tbsp. Grated Parmesan Cheese
Warmed Marinara or Pizza Sauce, for dipping (I used my homemade pizza sauce)

Preheat oven according to refrigerated crust instructions, usually 400 degrees.  

Unroll your pizza dough onto a lightly floured surface.  Pat or roll the dough so it is about 12" by 8".  You are going to want to cut it into 24 squares, so just eyeball it if you need to.  Use a pizza cutter to slice the dough into 24 squares.

Place cheese and desired toppings on each square, just eyeball how much.  Keep in mind that you will need to be able to enclose the toppings in the dough.  Note: Do not put pizza sauce on squares!  It is for dipping!

When all of your dough squares have cheese and toppings on them, carefully life up each square and wrap the dough around the toppings.  Pinch to make sure that each ball is sealed shut and then place them, seam side down, in a lightly sprayed pie pan (or similar sized dish).  

Using a pastry brush, brush the tops of the rolls lightly with Olive Oil and then sprinkle with the garlic and Italian seasoning and top with the Parmesan cheese.  

Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown on top.  Keep an eye on them!  Doughs vary, so you might even want to check them after 10 minutes.  

Serve warm with pizza sauce on the side for dipping.
