What's for dinner? - Easy Pizza Rolls

This was the second pan and I smashed them in.  If you leave more space they pop out much easier.

BIG HIT last week were these pizza rolls.  The recipe calls for thawed loaf of frozen bread dough.  I used some of my homemade pizza dough.   All the boys in the house ate them up.  We had only two leftover and just like she mentions in her cookbook, you can freeze or serve them cold in a school lunch.  We reheated and they tasted yummy the next day.  I doubled the recipe but my pizza dough makes enough for two pizzas - so I didn't double that. 

Easy Pizza Rolls

1 loaf frozen bread dough, thawed
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
pizza sauce
2 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup chopped pepperoni (I just laid pieces on in rows, each row about 2 inches apart)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Coat baking dish with cooking spray (I used 9 x 13 dish and a 8x8 dish).

Roll out dough into a rectangle, making it thin.
Spread cream cheese evenly over the dough.
spread pizza sauce, lightly, over the cream cheese.
Lay pepperoni and top with cheese and spices.
Roll up jelly-roll style (like you are making Cinnamon rolls) and slice.
Lay cut side down in pan with some space between because they do expand. 

Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown!
