It’s Friday night and that means pizza for us, but today I’m mixing it up a bit with these pizza pull apart rolls – they are fun to make and you get to dunk these tasty rolls in your favorite pizza sauce! They are also easy, since you make and serve them in one skillet. I’m pretty sure we won’t have any leftovers 🙂
I think my cast iron skillet is my new best friend. Over the last few months I’ve made several recipes like Lemon Pull Apart rolls, Orange Pecan Pull Apart rolls and even an entire pizza. The skillet cooks evenly every time and cleaning them is easy too. I just use a brush and water to scrub and then make sure to dry it well with paper towels. Last step is rubbing some oil on it and you are good to go. You can even watch a video tutorial on cleaning and care of cast iron skillets.
Well, our weekend company is just about here and I need do final preparations. Besides serving these pizza rolls, I’m planning on some tasty beverages and a side of veggies with dip. A really easy night in the kitchen.
Hope you enjoy the pull apart pizza rolls recipe!!
No double dunking!
Pull Apart Pizza Rolls
Pizza pull apart rolls make the perfect snack or dinner option. They are little, light fluffy pillows topped with Italian seasonings, cheese and pepperoni tucked in between.
- 11 frozen Rhodes dinner rolls (thawed on a plate but still cold-takes about 2 hours-cover with plastic wrap)
- 2 1/2 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
- 2 oz. diced mozzarella cheese
- 1/4 cup diced pepperoni
- 1 cup pizza sauce
- After the rolls are thawed, cut them in half and place in a 10" cast iron skillet that has been sprayed with PAM
- Place rolls in 3 rings as shown in picture
- Tuck the pepperoni and mozzarella cheese between the rolls
- Cover with plastic wrap.
- When the rolls start touching (about 90 minutes), combine the melted butter with the spices and brush over the rolls
- Cover again and let rise until double (about 90 minutes)
- Preheat oven to 375 and before placing in oven sprinkle the 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese over the rolls
- Bake until golden brown (mine took 20 minutes)
- Serve immediately with warm pizza sauce for dunking.
CAUTION: Skillet will be very hot
