Pepperoni Rolls

We have always been a huge fan of Pepperoli's from Mazzios but they are so greasy it about makes you sick. Well we found an inspiration recipe to make them a little healthier and not nearly as greasy.

Inspiration: Tidy Mom & Supermom chef

1 can refrigerated pizza crust (we used the Pillsbury kind)
garlic salt
Italian seasoning
1 cup sliced pepperoni (used the mini pepperonis)
1 cup shredded cheese (we used the Italian blend which is Parmesan, provolone, romano, fontina, and asiago cheese)
pizza sauce

Preheat oven to 425
On a large cutting board or wax paper (we just used cutting board) put flour on and roll out pizza crust.
Season crust with garlic salt and Italian seasoning
add pizza sauce to crust

top with cheese and pepperoni
start with a short end, roll crust into a TIGHT log
slice into 1" sections
place in lightly greased glass dish and bake for 13 minutes.
Serve with pasta sauce for dipping.

Recommendations for next time
1) more pizza sauce (it made it so good!)
2) go easy on the pepperoni (think we put a few too many)

Other than these 2 things it turned out delicious! Just like pepperolis but without all the grease. This could easily be altered to make other pizzas as well.
