Pizza Rolls are Perfect for School Lunches
Pizza Rolls might be our new favourite school lunch item!
Our family loves to make homemade pizza. I have a great recipe that came with our bread machine, and it takes minutes to dump in the ingredients.
You can also buy frozen pizza dough in the grocery stores and I’ve seen it in Apple Valley Pies Plus Outlet in Berwick (behind Union Street restaurant).
After we make our individual-sized pizzas, we always have leftover dough. This is when I make items for school lunches.
In the past, we have made pizza pockets:
And we have made Pizza Bites using muffin tins.
This time, we decided to make pizza rolls – something similar to a jelly roll, but pizza!
Here’s how we made the pizza rolls:
Roll the dough into a rectangle, and cover it in pizza sauce. Then add your toppings.
Roll the dough like a jelly roll.
Then slice it into 1″ pieces. Turn sideways and put on a cookie sheet.
I baked them at 375F for about 20 minutes, until they were golden.
Time may vary depending on the thickness of your rolls. I also find that anything on my stoneware takes longer to bake.
Once cooled, I froze them in a ziplock bag, and when needed, I will pop 2 of them into my child’s sandwich container for a school lunch.
They can heat them up in the microwave, or eat them cold!
