Can you feel the Super Bowl energy in the air?? I sure can! So I'm having one of my favorite bloggers, Shandra from Deals to Meals, share the all-star lineup of perfect Super Bowl foods…all using the same Best Basic French Bread recipe! Talk about a touchdown. In this post she'll show us her incredibly quick and simple Super Bowl Pizza Rolls. Take it away Shandra!
These quick and easy pizza rolls are a simple way to reuse my Best Basic French Bread! You roll the dough like a cinnamon roll, top with your favorite sauces and toppings, roll and place in a greased muffin tin. They puff up into these really cute pizza muffins that the kids will fight over. I drizzled mine with a garlic butter spread and it made these special for kids and adults. A simple appetizer for upcoming parties!
Easy Pizza Rolls
1 recipe French Bread Dough
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 pkg. (6-8 oz.) pepperoni
Onions, green peppers, pineapple, olives, sausage, etc.
2-3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 stick butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbls. fresh parsley, chopped
2 tsp. garlic seasoning spread (like Johnny's from Costco)
Make the French bread dough and let rise until the bread reaches the top of the bowl. Once the dough has risen once, pour onto a lightly greased counter top. With a rolling pin, roll half of the dough into a large rectangular shape (like you would for cinnamon rolls).
Spread a generous amount of the spaghetti sauce all over the rectangle of dough. Top the sauce with pizza toppings of your choice. Top with a sprinkled layer of cheese.
Roll up the pizza-topped dough, making a long snake-shape (like cinnamon rolls). Spray two muffin tin pans with cooking spray. Cut the rectangle into 12-16 slices, about a 1/2 inch thick. Place each rolled piece into each muffin tin.
Let the pizzas rise until they reached the top of the muffin tin. Preheat the oven to 350 and bake for 18-25 minutes, or until they are cooked through and golden brown on top.
While the muffins are cooking, melt the butter in a glass bowl. Add the minced garlic, parsley and garlic seasoning in the bowl and mix together. Once the pizza muffins are cooked, brush the top generously with the butter spread and serve warm or cold. ENJOY!
