Easy pizza rolls

Lately I feel like we've been eating the same 4-5 dishes over and over again. I'm pretty good about test-driving dessert recipes, but it's been awhile since I've tried something new in the dinner department.

So here's recipe #1 - Pizza Rolls from Let's Dish

These were really easy to make, making them great for a busy Saturday after a full day of errands.

Pizza Dough  (I was lazy and used the Pillsbury prepared stuff)
1 teaspoon garlic salt (felt like a lot of salt...)
2 teaspoons basil
1 cup sliced pepperoni, chopped (Yay for Hormel's minis - no chopping!)
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Mix the cheeses, spices, and pepperoni in a bowl.
Divide pizza dough in half. Roll each half into a rectangle, about 1/4 inch thick and 12 inches long. Sprinkle each half with equal amounts the pepperoni mixture.
Starting at a short end, roll dough up tightly to form a log. Slice into 1-inch pieces.

Place rolls on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes or until browned on top.
Serve with warm marinara sauce for dipping.
I think this took all of 20 minutes to make and was very tasty. I ran out of pizza dough before I ran out of the pepperoni mixture. I think if I made my own dough it'd work a little better, but this was good for a quick meal. The recipe feeds two generously, but we fed three without over-stuffing ourselves. Definitely one we'll make again!
