These pizza rolls are so very yummy and easy to make. They’re a great dinner idea for both kids and adults. You can make them with any preferred pizza toppings that you like or have on hand.
For the Dough:
1 1/4 cups warm water
2 packages active dry yeast
1 Tbs honey
3 Tbs good quality olive oil
4 cups all purpose flour + extra for kneading
2 tsp kosher salt
Mix the dough: Combine the water, yeast, honey and 3 tablespoons of olive oil in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook. When the yeast is dissolved, add 3 cups of flour, then 2 teaspoons salt, and mix on medium-low speed. While mixing, add up to 1 more cup of flour, or just enough to make a soft dough. Knead the dough for about 10 minutes until smooth, sprinkling it with the flour as necessary to keep it from sticking to the bowl.
Knead by hand: When the dough is ready, turn it out onto a floured board and knead it by hand a dozen times. It should be smooth and elastic.
Let it rise: Place the dough in a well-oiled bowl and turn it to cover it lightly with oil. Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and allow the dough to rise at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Making the Rolls:
Tear off small sections of the dough and stretch each one out to about the size of your palm. Put in a small amount of mozzarella cheese, 1-2 slices pepperoni or whatever pizza toppings you like. Fold the dough and pinch the bottom to make a pocket. Brush the tops with olive oil and sprinkle with a little garlic powder and place on a lightly greased sheet pan bake at 500 degrees for 6-7 minutes.
Dip in your favorite pizza sauce/marinara sauce. I have used both homemade or jarred and both are great.
