Servings: 16 pizza rolls


  • 1 batch homemade pizza dough or store-bought
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup your favorite pizza sauce I used store-bought.
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 1/2 cup pizza blend shredded cheese
  • meat of your choice I used 50 slices of pepperoni.
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1 tbsp fresh basil chopped


  • Split your pizza dough into two portions to make it easier to work with. Roll out each portion to a large rectangle, about 1/4-inch thick.
  • Brush the dough with olive oil and sprinkle with a little bit of salt. If you wish, you may dimple the dough with your fingers to decrease the amount of air bubbles you get when baking.
  • Spread the pizza sauce evenly across the pizza dough and sprinkle with italian seasoning, garlic powder, and onion powder. Top with cheese.
  • Roll the dough from bottom to top, starting from the shorter side. Place the logs onto a plate that has been lined with some parchment paper and refrigerate for a half hour.
  • Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 425°F and line two large baking sheets with silpats or parchment paper.
  • When your logs have finished chilling, cut them into equal 1-inch slices with a very sharp knife. Dip the bottom of each slice into the cornmeal (swirl-side), and place them cornmeal-side down onto the baking sheets. They should be placed on the baking sheet swirl-side up.
  • Bake the pizza rolls for 25-30 minutes or until risen, slightly browned, and bubbly. Remove from oven and garnish with fresh basil. Enjoy immediately, or store the pizza rolls in the fridge for 2-3 days.
