For the dough

  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 3 ½ cups All-purpose flour

  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 cup Pizza sauce (homemade or store-bought)
  • 1 cup Mozzarella Shredded
  • 50 slices Pepperoni

Instructions
 

For the dough

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the warm water, yeast, and granulated sugar until the yeast has dissolved.
  • Cover the bowl and allow the mixture to rest for five minutes.
  • After five minutes, add the salt and olive oil, then gradually add in the flour while mixing at low speed until a dough is formed.
  • Remove the dough from the bowl and place onto a lightly floured surface.
  • Use your hands to gently knead the dough for 4-5 minutes.
  • Place the dough in a large bowl that has been lightly greased with oil or cooking spray.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave to rise at room temperature for at least an hour, or until the dough has doubled in size.

For the pizza rolls

  • Once the dough has doubled in size, release any air bubbles by punching down the dough a few times then divide the dough in half.
  • Place both halves on a lightly floured surface, then roll each half into a large rectangle, about 12 inches in length.
  • Lightly brush olive oil over both dough halves, then spread ½ cup of pizza sauce over each half.
  • Sprinkle ½ cup of shredded mozzarella cheese over the sauce on each half, then top with pepperoni slices.
  • Working slowly and carefully, tightly roll each rectangle until each rectangle forms a log.
  • Transfer both rolls onto a single prepared baking sheet, then chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (or the appropriate temperature if using a pizza oven).
  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Remove the rolls from the refrigerator and slice into 12 1-inch slices.
  • Place 12 slices on each baking sheet, then sprinkle with ground basil and garlic pepper.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until slightly browned.
  • Remove from the oven and cool slightly before serving.
  • Serve with extra pizza sauce for dipping and enjoy.
