I love Pizza Scrolls, perfect for school lunches or a snack on the go! You can make a large batch and freeze them too! Pizza scrolls are super easy to make! These can be made with bought puff pastry sheets. Making them this way is a great idea for the kids to get involved in cooking their own dinner. My kids love making these.
1 (fresh) store bought pizza dough or 1/2 recipe basic pizza dough
1/3 cup marinara sauce (plus more for dipping)
1 tablespoon fresh oregano, minced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2-2/3 cup shredded mozzarella
24-30 thinly sliced pepperoni
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal (medium grind)
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Place dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to about 1/8 inch thick. (try to get the dough to 9"x12" (or larger if needed).
Spread marinara sauce sparingly over dough and top with oregano and garlic.
Sprinkle mozzarella evenly over sauce and finish by topping the dough with the pepperoni. (I like to slightly overlap the pepperoni over one another)
Starting at one end, carefully roll dough into a large, tight log and place onto a cutting board, seam side down.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Remove from refrigerator and cut 1"-1 1/2" pinwheels from the log.
Dredge one cut side of each pinwheel in the cornmeal until well coated and place (cornmeal side down) onto a baking sheet lined with parchment or using a little bit of cooking spray.
Sprinkle top of each wheel with a small amount of Parmesan and bake for 16-20 minutes or until golden brown. (in the last 5-7 minutes check the bottoms to make sure they're not burning)
Allow to cool for 5 minutes and serve with extra marinara sauce for dipping.
