High points for creativity... pizza ROLLS!

Did you ever forget to pull out the meat for dinner?  And not realize it until dinner time? 

That's when creativity is born.

I forgot the chicken.  It's frozen solid, in the deep freeze.  No way of thawing in the 20 minutes before the guys get hungry.

What do I have?

provolone cheese
tomato sauce
stuff to make pizza crust (always!)


I know how to make cinnamon rolls... why can't we have pizza rolls?

And a new idea was born.  At least new to this house.

Think I know what will be on the lunch menu around here once in a while.

Pizza crust
Tomato sauce
1/2 tsp italian seasoning
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
Shredded mozzerella
Provolone cheese slices (or mozzerella)

Roll the pizza dough out in a  jelly roll pan.

Spread the tomato sauce on the whole thing.

Sprinkle the seasonings on the tomato sauce.

On the long end of the pan, line the cheese and pepperoni.

In the middle of the pan, add a line of pepperoni.

Sprinkle mozzerella over the whole pizza crust.  (add a little parmesean if you have it)

Start on the side with the provolone and roll the crust like you would cinnamon rolls.

Cut the log into 8 pieces.

Arrange the rolls into a pie plate.  Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
