Cheesy pizza wheels recipe

Yields 8-10 servings depending on size

Ingredients:

  • 1 (11 ounce) can pizza dough (found in the refrigerated section of grocery store)
  • 1/2 cup pizza or tomato sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian herbs

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Roll the pizza dough out into a large rectangle. Spread the tomato or pizza sauce evenly over the top of the dough and sprinkle the shredded cheese and dried herbs over the top.
  3. Gently roll the dough up trying to keep it as tightly rolled as possible into a log shape (as if you were making cinnamon rolls). With a knife, cut the dough into rounds and place on the cookie sheet.
  4. Bake 15 minutes or until the dough is completely cooked and the cheese is melted. Allow to cool slightly and serve warm with extra tomato or pizza sauce.
  5. Tip: You can add any toppings you want to add such as pepperoni, black olives, onions, sausage or extra cheese.
