pizza rolls

Another recipe for you...this one is REALLY good.
I modified it from a once a month cooking cookbook. You can bake these up and then freeze them and then just reheat them in the oven when you are ready to eat them. We thought they were better with ranch but pizza sauce is a good dip too.

Pizza Rolls
1 Pizza crust rolled out to 14x24 inches
1 pound ground turkey or other meat
1 can mushrooms, chopped finely
3 cups mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan or Romano cheese
2 tsp each of pizza seasoning, basil, oregano

You can use pre made pizza dough/crust or you can make your own. Roll it to a 14x24 rectangle. Brown your ground turkey and add the herbs to flavor it. Next add in mushrooms and remove from heat. Spray pizza crust with olive oil, cover with meat and mushroom mixture. Top with shredded cheese. Push toppings slightly into the dough. You will be rolling the dough up jelly roll style so if you don't do this step you will have toppings all over the place.
So next, roll up the dough from the 24 inch side. Pinch the last edge in so that it stays rolled up. Cut roll into 24 1-inch slices. Place on jelly roll pan and bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes or until the dough starts to get golden brown. Remove from oven and top rolls with Parmesan or Romano. Another thing you can do that I didn't do the first time is to brush them with olive oil or garlic butter after you bake them.
If you want to freeze any of them just let them cool and then place in a freezer bag until you are ready to use.

Very tasty little treats!! :)
