Monday Menus

Kennon has been cooking something almost everyday lately. Last week she made whole wheat banana chocolate chip muffins, chocolate mint cookies, and even these pizza rolls. I had nothing to do with any of it. Maybe it’s because her mother is too busy to cook right now  and someone has got to pick up the slack so they don’t have to live off crackers and cold cereal. I really do plan to start cooking again once the move is completed. So Kennon has been using my favorite recipe blog to find recipes. Here’s the  blog.  It’s called Sisters Cafe. They are Mormon sisters who post something almost everyday. I have loved pretty much everything I have tried. It is indexed well so it’s easy to look up new recipes or continue to use my favorites on the blog. These pizza rolls are a new favorite. It sounds difficult but come on. My 13 year old made these all by herself and they looked exactly like the photo. And they tasted amazing. Hopefully I can make them as good as Kennon. So don’t be scared because it sounds difficult to roll up little pizza rolls and make your own dough. If a 13 year old can handle it so can you. And they are worth it. Sorry that I can’t post the photo of the pizza rolls but after wasting 10 minutes trying I give up. Here is the Pizza roll recipe including picture. I also posted the recipe here for you.

Pizza Rolls

Dough recipe: 1 c. warm water  1 tsp. sugar  1 Tb. yeast  3 Tb. olive oil   2 1/2 c. flour  1 tsp. salt.   Put warm water in bowl and stir in sugar and yeast. Let it proof for 10 minutes. Stir in the rest of ingredients and knead 10 minutes. ( We used our Bosche) Let rise until double.

Roll pizza dough out into a large rectangle. Using a pizza cutter, cut into 12 pieces.

Layer the following toppings in the center of each square of dough; about 2-3 Tb total of toppings on each.

Toppings: mozzarella cheese, shredded or cubed    pepperoni, cut into fourths     1/2 green bell pepper, diced small    1/2 small onion, diced small      1/4 cup chopped olives

Or use your favorite toppings.

Now stretch and fold the dough around the toppings, pinching to seal edges. This is the tricky part – the more toppings you use, the harder it gets to tuck them all within the dough! (fyi: pepperoni and cheese or ham and pineapple are much easier, as you can imagine.) But remember a 13 year old had no problem. Now place seam side down in a lightly greased casserole dish or glass baking dish. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle generously with garlic salt and Italian seasoning. (oregano, basil and thyme, etc) Bake in a 400 degree oven for 25-30 minutes or until rolls are light brown. Serve with your favorite marinara sauce for dipping. Dig in and have fun!
