Equipment

  • Rolling Pin
  • Pastry Brush
  • Baking Sheet

Ingredients

  • 1 (16 ounce) loaf frozen bread dough (or one roll refrigerated pizza crust)
  • 1 (8 ounce) jar pizza sauce (divided)
  • 2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese (or sliced)
  • 1 (6 ounce) package pepperoni slices optional topping
  • 1 (2.25 ounce) can sliced black olives optional topping
  • 1 egg beaten
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ Tablespoon Italian seasoning

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Let the dough thaw out for about an hour (if you're using refrigerated pizza crust, you can skip this step).
  • Roll out the dough with a rolling pin so that it is about 1/4 inch thick. Spread about 1/2 cup sauce over the bread.
  • Place Mozzarella cheese and pepperoni slices over the sauce. Then add any other toppings you like. We like black olives.
  • Carefully roll up (you'll want to roll it so it's long and thin rather than short and thick) and place on a baking sheet. If you use a bread loaf, you may have to cut it in half to fit it on the baking sheet.
  • Brush with beaten egg, then top with grated Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning, we love the flavor it gives the crust.
  • Bake for 20 - 25 minutes. Keep an eye on it so it doesn't burn.
  • Let cool for 5 minutes then cut into slices.
  • Dip in remaining pizza sauce (or preferred dipping sauce).

Notes

Some of our favorite topping ideas:
  • Pepperoni, olive, and cheese (pictured above)
  • Ham and Pineapple
  • Meat lovers (sausage, salami, bacon bits, and pepperoni)
  • Veggies (we love sliced peppers, mushrooms, and artichokes)
  • Alfredo sauce instead of pizza sauce
