Pizza Rolls - crowd-pleasing pizza gets a little makeover into these fun party appetizer, snack or light meal pizza rolls made with a homemade pizza dough and pizza sauce, sausage, pepperoni and cheeses and then brushed with a flavorful buttery mixture. Surprisingly simple yet super satisfying!
Line baking or cookie sheet with parchment or foil paper. Lightly grease and set aside.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Then roll pizza dough into a rectangle about 10 X 14 inches. Add marinara or this homemade pizza sauce followed by toppings (sausage , pepperoni, cheeses, and fresh basil.)
Starting with the end nearest you, roll the dough up snugly like a jelly-roll around the filling, finishing the roll with the seam side down. Do not forget to pinch the seal so they don’t come apart when baking.
Slice with knife or pizza cutter into 1-inch pieces. Place rolls on prepared sheets.
Combine melted butter, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning in a small bowl. Quickly brush over rolls.
Bake rolls for about 15 minutes or until lightly brown and rolls are cooked through. Sprinkle with extra Parmesan cheese and pepper flakes , if desired, this is purely optional. Serve with warm pizza sauce for dipping.
