easy cheesy rolls

as we all know, i am obsessed with trader joe’s 99-cent pizza crusts, so i’m on a mission to find more uses for them. (watch out – i have some scary ideas. i’ll start out easy on you.)

first, i am pleased to report that the dough freezes royally.

just before leaving for vacation i tossed an extra bag of whole wheat dough and half a bag of left-over shredded mozzarella in the freezer. i figured i could either throw it away then, or throw it away later if freezing didn’t work…

well, IT DID. but instead of pizza, this time i wanted something to serve with my soup. like rolls.

i started by rolling out the dough.


then i brushed it with a little olive oil and sprinkled a layer of mozzarella and random dried herbs.


roll up the dough (i know, it doesn’t look at all appetizing yet… hang in there)


slice it about an inch thick, and lay each on a cookie sheet. (i have to line mine with parchment because it’s old and it sucks.) then bake until the cheese is all browned and dough looks done. i think it took mine about 20 minutes? i should get better at watching the clock, huh? since i’m writing a COOKING BLOG here!! (sorry)



great with soup, also fabulous served to friends with marinara dipping sauce and a football game.
