Prep time:

Total time: 
Serves: 6
  • 2 (10-12") pizza doughs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3 ounces pepperoni, thinly sliced
  • 1½ tablespoons chopped fresh oregano (or 1½ teaspoons dried)
  • 1½ teaspoons chopped fresh basil (or a dash of dried on each dough)
  • 1½ teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • Parmesan cheese
  • olive oil for brushing the rolls
  • tomato sauce for dipping
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a small skillet. Add the garlic and cook over medium high heat for about a minute until it's toasted and fragrant. Remove from the heat.
  3. On a floured surface, stretch one of the pizza doughs to about ¼ inch thick.
  4. Brush it all over with the olive oil and garlic.
  5. Scatter 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese over the garlic & oil.
  6. Lay half the pepperoni slices over the mozzarella. Sprinkle with half the herbs, half the crushed red pepper, and Parmesan cheese to taste.
  7. Starting at one end, roll the dough. Fold the sides in as you go and keep rolling all the way to the other end. The dough might tear slightly as you roll it. No worries. If it doesn't tear at all you'll need to pierce the top of the roll in a place or two to let the air escape.
  8. Gently lift the roll and place it on the prepared baking sheet.
  9. Repeat the process with the second roll.
  10. Brush the tops of the pizza rolls with the olive oil.
  11. Bake the rolls for 15 minutes or until the outside is a pretty golden brown.
  12. Slice and serve with the pizza sauce.
