Pizza Rolls

We had a friend in who liked my pizza rolls before, so I tried making them a little fancier this time: with a breading type thing.

Rolls:

  • frozen bread dough
  • pepperoni
  • block of cheese

Coating:

  • pasteurized egg mixture (substitute real egg if you have it on hand)
  • olive oil

Topping:

  • parmesan
  • bread crumbs
  • pepper
  • salt
  • garlic powder or salt

The topping should be mixed in a bowl in whatever proportions taste delicious to you, but I suggest lighter on the salt than you think you need because the pepperoni is salty.

So basically, you roll out the bread dough super thin and then cut it into squares – it’s easier than ripping and flattening because then the edges stick together better. Cut up little squares of cheese and put one of those and a pepperoni in each bit of bread dough. Wrap them up, trying to make them as seamless and dumpling-like as possible.

Dip them in the egg mixture, then in the topping. Stick them on a non-stick baking sheet. Start preheating your oven to 375°F at some point while you’re filling a tray – these can take a while, especially the first time you make them.

When the sheet is full stick it in your preheated oven for 15 minutes.

Best served still quite warm.

Cookie-Free Blogging

IMG_1204I was getting fudge supplies, and T brought up her favorite cookies: the only cookies she likes, really, after a somewhat traumatic stint working in a cookie shop in high school. So we got ingredients for them. And today I made them. They’re supposed to make four dozen? I made two dozen, because I am apparently bad at ’rounded tablespoon.’ And making sure edges don’t touch. Like, I wanted to make these the way T remembered them enough that I actually measured shit.

And now you know why I don’t do cookie recipes.
