Pizza Roll

Hubby and I had a party to go to. It was actually the finals for our Beirut league. Yes, we play in a Beirut league. I always called it Beer Pong, but here they call it Beirut. Anyways, the finals were coming up and we knew it was going to be a long night of drinking, so I wanted to make some food that would help soak up the alcohol.

The pizza roll was a huge hit. I baked it the day before and cut and refrigerated it overnight. Then I popped it into the oven to reheat it. I served it with ranch dressing and marinara sauce.

I followed the recipe from Allrecipes.com except for a few minor changes. I made 2 loafs (since there were 20 teams of 2 people each) and they were gone in an instant.

Pizza Roll (from Allrecipes.com)
1 (10 ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust dough – I used refrigerated French Loaf
1/4 pound Genoa salami, thinly sliced
1/4 pound pepperoni sausage, sliced
1/4 pound provolone cheese, sliced
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
I added some Italian seasoning on top prior to baking

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a large baking sheet.

Roll pizza crust dough into an approximately 10×14 inch rectangle on the baking sheet. Layer with Genoa salami, pepperoni and provolone cheese. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese to within 1/2 inch from edges of the dough. Roll jelly roll style. Seal the edge with a fork.

Bake in the preheated oven 25 minutes, or until golden brown (I covered with foil the last 5 minutes so it wouldn’t brown too much on the top). Slice into 1 inch pieces to serve.

    Looks like a perfect salmon recipe! I still haven’t been to Penzey’s, but will make it there one of these weekends!

    So how powerful was the cilantro flavor? I’m not a big fan of cilantro, but Steph is. I might try to make this if it isn’t to powerfully flavored with cilantro.

    I don’t know if we can be friends Scott. Cilantro is awesome. Honestly, it was more garlicy than cilantro flavored, but I’ve heard that people who don’t like cilantro really can’t stand it and I love it, so I don’t know if that’s a fair assessment… I say give it a shot. If you don’t like the pesto, eat yours without it.
