Alli's Pizza Rolls
A rare Friday recipe from Chef Alli, just in time for the weekend; these are awesome!
2 loaves frozen bread dough, thawed
1/2 lb. sliced ham
1/2 lb. sliced hard salami
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup of your favorite marinara sauce, warmed
Grated parmesan, for garnish
On a lightly floured work surface, roll each loaf of bread dough out into a rectangle approx. 8 inches x 12 inches. Layer one half of ham and one half of salami over each rectangle, slightly overlapping each meats in each layer.
Top ham and salami with 1 cup of mozzarella on each rectangle. Starting at the long side of each rectangle, roll dough into a into a long roll, tucking filling in with your fingers as you go, rolling tightly. Cut roll into slices about 1 1/2 inch in width and place onto a greased baking sheet. Bake, in a preheated 375 degree F. oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Garnish with grated parmesan, if desired, and serve with your favorite marinara sauce on the side.
Rolls can be frozen on cookie sheets, then placed into a freezer bag and stored in the freezer. This way, you can pull as many from the freezer as you'd like and bake.
To bake from frozen: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place frozen pizza rolls onto greased baking sheet and place baking sheet into oven. Reduce heat to 375 degrees and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.
