Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 15oz Can of tomato sauce
  • 1 6oz  oz can of tomato paste
  • 2 cloves minced/crushed garlic
  • 1 tbsp ground oregano
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp ground paprika
  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tube pre-made pizza dough
  • 1 cup pepperoni slices
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1 cup butter melted
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup corn meal

Instructions

  • Start by first making the pizza sauce.  In your mixing bowl, combine together the tomato sauce, tomato paste, minced/crushed garlic, oregano, Italian seasoning, paprika, and sugar. 
  • Mix well to combine and set aside for about 10-15 minutes to really let the flavors blend.
  • While your sauce is resting, preheat your oven to 425F/218C.
  • Open your tube of pizza dough and unroll.  If your dough has any holes or gaps in it, pinch those closed.  
  • Mix together your melted butter and your garlic powder.  Using your pastry brush, brush your dough with this mixture, giving it all a nice even coat.  You should have plenty of garlic butter left over. Save it for now as we will be using it later in this recipe.
  • Spread a thick (but not too thick) layer of pizza sauce on your dough. 
  • Top your sauce with your pepperoni slices, spacing them out evenly over your dough.
  • Sprinkle with about ¾ of your mozzarella and 1/8 of your Parmesan cheese. 
  • Roll up your dough tightly along the long side, as though you’re making cinnamon rolls.  You will end up with a long pizza tube when you’re all done.  Brush a bit of melted butter along the seam and pinch closed.
  • Using your sharp knife, carefully slice your roll into 1-inch thick slices. 
  • Dip each slice into butter on both sides.
  • Dip one side of your roll in the cornmeal and place on your parchment lined sheet, cornmeal side down.
  • Continue dipping and dusting and placing on your baking sheet, making sure your rolls are about 1-inch apart.
  • Sprinkle the top of your pizza rolls with the remainder of your Parmesan and mozzarella cheese and slide into the oven for approximately 15-20 minutes. 
  • Warm up the remaining pizza sauce in the microwave (you should have plenty left over) and serve alongside your pizza rolls as a dip.
