Pizza Rolls

My mom made these while I was growing up, except she made the dough by hand, and I though I would try making them for our lunches. I just used the pre-made dough, and they were super quick and easy! 


Ingredients:

Pillsbury Pizza Crust
1/2 cup pizza or spaghetti sauce
1 package pepperoni
1 cup cheddar cheese

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 400 F.
Unroll the pizza crust on a clean counter or pan. Try to make it as rectangle as possible. Spread pizza sauce, pepperoni and cheese on the crust. Roll the crust up (if you roll it on the long side you will have more rolls but they will be smaller. If you roll it from the short side you will have fewer rolls but they will be bigger.). Pinch the edge of the roll into the rolled dough under it. 
Using floss, cut the crust into even rolls (about 1 1/2 inches thick).
 If you don’t know how to use the floss to cut, place the floss evenly under the place you want to cut. Bring the two strings up to the top, cross them and pull. They will form a loop that squeezes into the dough and cuts it. I prefer this technique over knives because a knife smashes the roll and misshapes it.  
Place each individual roll in a greased 9×13 pan. When all the rolls are in the pan, press them down a little, and place them in the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the crust is a golden brown color.
