Pizza Rolls

Lately, I have been making batches of pizza dough in my bread maker, then throwing it is ziplocs and freezing it.  I've been using this recipe off the bag of Bob Mill's Organic Flour: (I tried a few Whole Wheat Pizza Dough recipes, and I'm still on the look out for one that does not remind me of cardboard...help!)

Perfect Pizza Crust (well almost perfect, would be if it used whole wheat flour!) 
1 cup Warm Water (105-115 degrees)
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Rapadura (or Sugar or honey)
1 tsp Salt
21/2 Cups Unbleached White Flour
1 Tbsp Active Dry Yeast

Put in order given into bread maker.  
Set maker on dough setting. 
Push start, when finished,
Place in ziplock to freeze if not using right away.

I've done the same with 
Seasoned Ground Beef:

~chop some onion and garlic, (1/2 med. onion, 1 clove garlic)
~cook in a bit of olive oil, (about 1 Tbsp)
~add ground beef (1 lb)
~and a bit of grill seasoning, (1-1/2 tsp)
~cook it up,
~put in a mason jar, 
~and plop it in the freezer.

I've done the same with
~click here for the recipe
~put into mason jar and freeze

I've also been buying
  Mozzarella Cheese 
when it goes on sale:
~shred it, 
~then freeze it.

When I have a freezer full of these things, Homemade Pizza is a snap, and so delish!  I can't tell you the difference between homemade pizza and frozen store bought pizza.  I had no idea until I started making my own!

I wanted to make our pizza more fun and portable, so when I saw these Pizza Rolls at Tammy's Recipes, I knew I would copy her technique. These were a hit, especially with kids.  

~Roll out the dough about 1/8 inch thick.

~Sprinkle with garlic powder, Seasoned Ground Beef, and Cheese

~Roll up


~Put into a greased pan

~Bake 350 degrees about 15 minutes or until golden on top.

*You could bake these, then freeze and reheat for an easy snack.

*I recently used this same technique, but instead of seasoned ground beef and mozzarella cheese, I used seasoned taco meat and cheddar cheese, dipped in a sauce made of salsa mixed with sour cream. They were awesome!!


  1. so happy you stopped by my blog to say hello--nice to meet you!!

    Is that your kitchen on your blog header?? I am drooling over it.....LOVE!!

  2. i have made something just like this and LOVED it

  3. Hi, Amy. I'm loving the pizza roll idea. Nice easy finger food that I can freeze and pull out for lunches. Was reading a new blog today and came across this recipe. don't know what you've tried but though I'd let you know.


  4. Sheena-nope not mine, sure would love it to be, though!

    Pam-my girls keep calling them "pizza cinnamon rolls" -that so does not sound appetizing!

    Tamera-THANK YOU! I am going to try that one. I'll let ya know how it turns out.

  5. Those look awesome, my kids would just love this!

  6. I was just thinking "cinnamon rolls" too! These look like so much fun! Thanks.

  7. Have you ever tried using whole wheat pastry flour? I'm going to make these rolls tomorrow using that - I'll let you know how it goes!

  8. How delicious looking and what a great idea! My husband would absolutely flip over these - thank you for sharing @ SYST!

  9. Thanks for all the comments and thanks for reading!

  10. Amy, your pizza rolls look beautifully delicious!! :)

  11. I made this last week and it definitely isn't as pretty as yours but was so tasty! I'll be doing it again for sure:)

  12. WOW... a HUGE hit with the entire family. They'll be requesting these often. (The boys have already requested them for school lunches!) Thanks for sharing!

    I'm wondering if you couldn't assemble and freeze them BEFORE cooking, then go ahead and cook when you plan to eat them...
