‘Boli Rollies

Since I didn’t give you a recipe for last Friday, I’ll give you two today. You lucky people, you.

‘Boli Rollies
1 batch of pizza dough
1/2 cup pizza sauce
3/4 c shredded mozzarella

Preheat oven to 425F. Roll pizza dough out into a thin rectangle (8″x13″ maybe? give or take). Spread sauce over dough, leaving 1/2″ edges free. Top with 1/2 c of shredded cheese. Roll topped dough up from the long end, sealing edges with water. Cut roll crosswise into 1 1/2″ slices. Place slices, cut side up, about 1″ apart in a 9″x13″ pan (actually, we used a large, round cast iron pan for ours).


Bake at 425F for 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and top immediately with remaining cheese. Pop all that under the broiler if you like browned cheese.

We made these for lunch today, which means we needed to make them portable. There aren’t many options for packing warm lunches, are there? Unless we’re talking a Thermos for soup, that is. I put our ‘boli rollies in Tupperware, heated a rice bag in the microwave, then popped it all into a cooler for insulation. It worked…okay. Better than nothing.
