I know, trust me! These babies were so good! This recipe was so easy, but definitely popping with flavor. This recipe came about because I was tired of sauce. Read on...
Hubby, bless his little heart loves his sauce. I mean the man adores it! Every time I make my own pizza, or we order out, we have to have the "sauce" on it due to hubby, yet the kids and I love white pizza. Go figure...
So, I figured I could "one up" the little guy and he would never know it.
I am here to tell you, we did it! A killer dinner, we each had 2 rolls, and I served it with a side salad. Hubby, (you know the sauce guy), absolutely loved it! I mean it's fried, it's pizza inside out what's not to love? Right?
Now I did have a step by step of me on my island making the pizza rolls. My amazing child video taped it, edited to make it fast since my You Tube subscribers have said I am very long winded. I made it just like the new and coming videos. She uploaded the video for me...
Then I came on the laptop. YOU GUESSED IT! Bye, bye video! I have NO IDEA what I did, NONE! It's gone, it's somewhere in internet land. I could kick myself for not taking actual "pics" of the how to. So my friends, my apologies...
However, this recipe is absolutely delicious, with or without video!
Ready for this very simple recipe? Here we go;
Prep time: 1/2 an hour
Fry time: 5-7 minutes
Yield: 8 pizza rolls
1lb pizza dough (I bought it, you can certainly make your own)
1-1/2 cups mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup Grana Padano Cheese (like a mild Pecorino)
2 oz - 1/2 of package of thinly sliced pepperoni
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 tbsp dried parsley flakes
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
Enough Vegetable oil for frying
-Cut your dough round into 4 pieces, set aside.
-In a small bowl, add your olive oil and all your spices and mix well, set aside.
-On a floured surface, roll out the pizza dough till you get a 4 x 8 rectangle. Or their abouts, it does not need to be perfect.
-Mentally divide the dough in half in your mind. You will be folding the dough over the ingredients, so make sure you leave enough space in between and on the sides so you can fold over, and then cut.
*See this is where the video so would of helped - <Didi sighing> *
-Baste 2 strips of the olive oil mixture onto the dough.
-Add the Grana Padano or sliced sharp cheese. Then the pepperoni, and finally the mozzarella cheese.
-Fold the side dough over the filling. Using a pizza cutter, cut the rolls. Set aside.
-In a large stockpot or deep fryer, bring oil to 350F.
-Fry 3 rolls at a time till golden on one side, flip over and let fry until the other side is golden as well.
-Remove onto paper lined plate. Continue with the rest.
Serve with garlic aioli like I did with a side salad, or you can serve "sauce" <gulp> like hubby's favorite and enjoy!
