Veggies Packed Pizza Rolls

It’s Friday and you know what that means…Pizza! I feel like I could post pizza recipes every day:-) (also see Pepper pizza, Grilled zucchini pizza bites) Here’s one that of course my kids love cause they contains traditional ‘bread’ crust. I like it cause I can sneak a bunch of veggies…so I guess you could call it a win-win!

Sauce:

  • 1 jar of your favorite clean marinara sauce (I just use passata sauce and add my garlic, salt and herbs)
  • 2 cups of chopped veggies (spinach, bell peppers, mushrooms, onion, tomatoes, carrots, zucchini)

Chop veggies and saute for 3-4 minutes or until slightly tender. Blend in a high powered blender with marinara sauce.

  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese (can use more if you like it cheesy)

Crust:

  • 2 cups flour (I use whole wheat, but you can do 1/2 wheat and 1/2 all-purpose)
  • 2 1/4 tsp rapid rise yeast
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons raw sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup very warm water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  1. Combine 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together the warm water and the oil and add to the dry ingredients. Mix until well blended, about 1 minute. Gradually add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Dough should form a ball and will be slightly sticky. Knead on a floured surface, adding additional flour if necessary, until smooth and elastic, about 4 minutes.
  2. Place dough in a large, lightly greased bowl, and cover with plastic wrap.  Allow to rest for 30 minutes in a warm, draft-free place.  Dough should almost double in size.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  4. Remove the dough from the bowl and place on a lightly floured work surface.  Use a rolling pin to roll the dough into a ½-inch thick rectangle, about 12 by 10 inches.
  5. Begin by spreading about 1 cup of sauce over the dough, leaving a ½-inch boarder around the edges.  If it seems like it needs more, then add 1 or 2 Tbsp at a time.   Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
  6. Begin rolling the dough until you have one large roll. Slice into 8-12 slices and place in a greased muffin tin.
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until rolls are golden brown and cooked through the middle.
