Another Win From MBR!

Happy Monday, Kitschies!  Can you believe it's August already?  While I can believe it because it's been so freakin hot, I can't believe it's actually that time of the year again.  In just two weeks, my baby is going to be in Kindergarten!  KINDERGARTEN!!  *sigh*  I'm super excited and super sad all at the same time.  How is it even possible my little boy is in school?!

I have a super YUM recipe to share with you today.  I snagged this recipe from the most beautiful and talented Mrs Bettie Rocker.  I've made this recipe twice and BOTH times I wish I had made more!  Consider yourself warned...

Stuffed Pizza Rolls

1 roll of refrigerated pizza dough
2 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese
1 Tablespoon olive oil (or melted butter)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
mozzarella cheese
your favorite pizza toppings, chopped
marinara sauce for dipping

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roll pizza dough out to about 12in by 8in, then cut into 24 squares. Fill each square with mozzarella cheese and your favorite pizza toppings toppings.
2. Bring ends together and pinch to form a ball. Place seam side down in a greased pie pan.
3. Brush tops with butter/oil and season with garlic and Italian seasonings.
4. Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve with marinara sauce for dipping. 
What I really love about these is you can fill them with whatever you want!  The hubs does NOT do olives, so I made his with pepperoni and green chile.  And the boys had some cheese and some pepperoni and cheese.

I hate my oven.  It cooks very unevenly, so part of the batch got super dark - the other, not cooked enough.  If you check out Becky's post, you can see that her pizza rolls look better.

See what I mean?  *sigh*  I don't care, though...they ALL got eaten.  And I could've easily made another batch and they would've all disappeared, too.

If you haven't already, go check out From the Kitchen of: Mrs Bettie Rocker...she posts some AWESOME recipes and she shares her little boys with us from time to time, also.  She was one of my first blog loves - and my love affair with her continues.

This recipe looks awesome. I will have to see if I can get my guy to eat it. We love pepperoni pizza but I often want more variety of toppings then him. This might be a great substitute. OH, btw, I did finally 'perfect' my chicken enchilada casserole. Its a bit of effort but still easier than rolling each individual enchilada :P Yay!

WTF YUM. I *have* to attempt making these, which is more like me forcing someone else to make them for me :D
