This fun appetizer is what would happen if pizza met a cinnamon roll and it is everything good. I took these to the super bowl party and I already have a few idea to change them up a bit. The best part about them, they are super quick to make and the ingredient list is short! Most of the time we already have at least half of the 8 ingredients in the house. One of the changes I would recommend when I make them next time would be to use a glass baking dish instead of a cookie sheet. It would be more reminiscent of a cinnamon roll and it could be topped with extra cheese. The more cheese the better right??
- Refrigerated Pizza Dough
- Tomato Sauce
- Shredded Cheese
- 1/8 melted butter
- ¼ tsp dried basil
- ¼ tsp dried oregano
- Pinch of salt
Begin by preheating the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
If the dough is already pre rolled, unroll it entirely and form it into a rectangle. If it is not pre-rolled, roll it into a rectangle about 13” x 9”.
Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce, cheese, and pepperoni across the rolled pizza dough. Similar to a cinnamon roll, begin rolling the dough into a log lengthwise. Once it is rolled, lightly pinch the end to seal the dough.
Cut about ¾ inch to 1 inch slices from the log and place on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil.
Mix the melted butter with the basil, oregano, and salt in a small bowl. Brush gently over the rolls.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the bottom is lightly browned.
Serve with extra tomato sauce for dipping.
