Homemade Pizza Rolls

It's another night at the ball field.

Thank goodness I only have one boy cherub to lug around!

I'm not sure that I could do this if I had 2 or 8 more boys!

At least I have a balance of ballet and baseball!

Because on game nights, it can be a little hectic,

and because it would be so much easier to grab dinner and run to the field,

I really try to make quick, easy, and tasty food!

I call it "homemade fast food!"

Isn't that ultra-creative?

Truly, what you spend at the fast food stop, you can have dinner that is so much tastier, more healthy, and usually have left overs for lunch the next day.

I called this "pizza roll ups,"

because that what it is

and I'm not really creative when I name food!

Homemade Pizza Rolls

1 Rhodes bread loaf, thawed
Deli sliced pepperoni or Canadian Bacon, chopped
Chopped onion, optional
Parmesan cheese, grated
Black Olives, optional
Pizza sauce

Thaw the frozen bread loaf.  This comes in a package of 3, I used only one loaf of the package for my family of 4.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Once the dough is thawed, on a lightly floured surface, use your hands to stretch the dough to a rectangle (maybe 10X12), or whatever you can easily get it to.  There's no right or wrong here.

Sprinkle the chopped pepperoni, onion, and black olives over the dough.  Evenly sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese.

Starting with the long side of the dough, roll up as though you are rolling cinnamon rolls.  Tightly seal the edge.

Using a serrated knife, cut the dough into 8 equal pieces.  Place them, cut side down, in an 8 X 8 pan that's been sprayed with Pam.

Bake for 25-40 minutes, depending on doneness and your desired browning on top.  I baked our closer to the 40 minute mark.

Remove from the oven and top with a little more grated Parmesan cheese.

Serve with a salad and pizza sauce to dip.
