If you’ve ever been in a hurry or just plain tired at night (always my issue), then you know that a home cooked meal can be a rather daunting prospect. Have no fear. This easy meal will be a crowd pleaser and will take almost no prep. You can prepare your own pizza crust or use a store bought tube.
I believed I’ve mentioned that I tend to shoot from the hip in the kitchen, so I would be lying if I said I stick to the following ingredient list. I made my own pizza sauce with a bit of pesto for a little extra pizazz, but store bought works fine also. Adjust to your tastes as needed and have fun.
1 tube or homemade pizza crust
1 small pack of pepperoni slices
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/8-1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
3 TBSP pizza sauce
garlic salt to taste
1 egg + 1 TBSP milk, beaten together for egg wash
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and grease a cookie sheet, sprinkling with cornmeal.
Roll pizza dough on a counter top sprinkled with cornmeal, forming a rectangle. Spread the pizza sauce on the dough, stopping 1 inch from the edges and top with cheeses and the pepperoni. Sprinkle with garlic salt, if desired.
Brush egg wash along the long edges and what will be the outside seam of your bread, then roll, short edge without egg wash first, into a log.
Place seam side down in the center of greased cookie sheet and brush the outside of the rolled bread with egg wash. Sprinkle with garlic salt, if desired.
Place in your 375 degree oven for 25-35 minutes, until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven, cool slightly, slice and enjoy!
