Stuffed Pizza Rolls

This was a really fun change from the regular pizza that our family eats. Our family really enjoyed being able to dip these in whatever sauce they liked. I liked the easyness of preparing the meal and the ease of cleanup. I also really liked that I can use the bread stick dough and Alfredo sauce that I usually make.

Bread Stick dough allow to rise one time                                             
1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese                                             
Pizza toppings of your choice, we used Canadian Bacon, 
Pepperoni and Olives                                 
1 tablespoon olive oil or melted butter
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 
1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Marinara, Pizza Sauce or Alfredo Sauce                         

After the bread stick dough is done rising, roll it out on a surface you can cut on into a rectangle of about 12 x 8 inches.

Cut the dough into about 24 squares, I usually use my pizza cutter for this. I didn't cut these very well, cutting straight isn't one of my talents, but they still worked out. Place the toppings you've chosen onto the dough squares. Make sure to include about 1 tablespoon of shredded mozzarella, and that you'll be able to close the dough up so the toppings don't escape. Don't put the sauce in there, it's for dipping! Carefully lift up each square and wrap the dough around the toppings and pinch to seal. Place the balls seam side down in a lightly sprayed cooking dish, I used two 8 x 8 square glass dishes. 

Brush the tops of the balls with the oil or the butter. Then sprinkle with the spices and Parmesan cheese. Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 to 20 minutes. It's recommended to check these at 10 minutes and adjust accordingly, which is smart. Ours only needed about 12 minutes to cook. Serve right away, using warmed Marinara, Pizza Sauce, or Alfredo Sauce to dip the rolls in.
