Pizza Wraps

Pizza Wraps

This recipe and photos was shared by Mom's Pantry follower Jaime Nasdeo. She found the recipe in the Kitchenaid manual, and inspired by a recipe she had seen somewhere, she created a family favorite: Pizza Rolls.  (See below for dough recipe)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray your cooking sheet with pam, so that the pizza rolls will not stick. Roll out 1/2 of the dough recipe (below) into a rectangle shape. Add your favorite pizza sauce.

Top with your favorite toppings.

Roll into a log.

Use flour on either the knife or on the pizza log to provide easy (easier) cutting through the dough at about an inch apart to maybe an inch and half. Each piece you cut you want to lay on its side showing the different layers on top.

Add a pinch more of cheese to the top.

Ready to bake? Oven is heated up? pop in oven for like 9-13 minutes (depending on your oven)

How to tell they are done? The dough is a golden yellow-ish brown and your cheese is melted with just a HINT of turning golden brown.

How much dough makes how many? Enough single batch of dough makes one large pizza, or 1 log, so at about 1"- 1.5" wide you are looking about 6-10 wraps.

Jaime says: "They go fast!! and I mean really fast.. so I would make a double batch (enough to make two logs) if for a family of 3-4 depending on age of those in the family. I have a family of 6 (2 adults and 4 kids ages 10-5 years old) and I make about 4 logs with only 5 or 6 left over.. if I want enough to freeze for a later date I have to make 8 logs, but the family helps me in the kitchen on those days."

Pizza Dough (from Kitchenaid manual)

*this makes a double batch of dough, so you can freeze what is left over for another day (you can 1/2 the recipe to make a single batch)

2 pkg of yeast
2 cups warm water (105 to 115F)
1 tsp salt
4 tsps olive oil
5 - 6 1/2 cups flour

Dissolve yeast in warm water in a warm mixing bowl. and salt, oil and 5 cups of flour. Mix until dough comes together and away from the sides of the bowl. Add more flour (up to 1 1/2 more cups) as needed to make dough the proper consistency.

Turn out onto a floured board, and knead. 

Place dough in a greased bowl, turning to grease the top. Cover, let warm in warm place, free from draft, about 1 hour or until doubled in bulk. Punch dough down.

It's ready now to make Jaime's pizza wraps, or your own homemade pizza.
