My mom gave my little dude a fruit roll up the other day. He had no idea what to do with it. It was sticking to his fingers and his 4 adorable teeth just couldn’t seem to rip a piece off. He might have to try fruit roll ups again later if he ever gets any more teeth. If not he’ll just have to stick with pizza roll ups! ( He doesn’t really like sweet as much as savory anyway so he might be okay with this…he is my “husbands son” tear. I am determined to help him learn to love chocolate and peanut butter if it is the last thing I do! But that is another story)
If you want a fast and easy dinner that everyone will love I would suggest these little pizza roll ups! They are so easy to make, everyone can personalize their own bites…and they are fun to make if you have little helpers in the kitchen. Right now my little helper plays with my pots and pans on the kitchen floor while I bake but soon he will be rolling up his own pizza creations!
Here is what you need for your basic roll ups:
4 Mozzarella Cheese Sticks (Cut in half and in Half again so you have 4 smaller strips for each cheese stick…see pictures below if you are confused)
2 Crescent Roll Tubes
1 Package Pepperoni
1 Jar Pizza Sauce
Pre-heat your oven to 375
Unroll your crescent roll and spread some pizza sauce on it. Add your pepperoni and any other ingredients followed by your cheese. Roll from the wide end to the small end and place in your baking dish.
Then make your buttery delicious herb topping:
2 tbsp butter melted
¾ tsp dill weed
¾ tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp garlic salt
Mix everything in with the melted butter and then spread it all over the rolls.
Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes or until the dough is golden and cooked through.
Tips from Kj:
Add parmesan cheese to your butter topping. We were out but I love putting this topping on any and every kind of roll I make. It adds an extra pop of flavor to every bite!
The sky is the limit with your filling options. Think of your favorite pizza and put it in your roll! Pin It
