7 Days of Perfetto Pizza!
Day 2: Pizza Rolls

Welcome to day 2 of our week of pizza. Tonight I present something a little different and fun: Pizza Rolls. No, not like the kind that come in a box. These are roll ups. They're bite size goodness! It's a great cooking project for kids as it's super fun and easy. And of course, yummy!

16 oz dough
1/4 cup pizza sauce
1 cup shredded vegan mozzarella cheese
your favorite topping (cut up very small)

Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Roll dough out over floured surface. Roll into a flat rectangle. Spoon sauce over dough, staying away from the edges by about an inch.

Place cheese and topping on over sauce. Now, starting from end closes to you, begin to roll the edge of the dough over, all the way to the end. Press the rolled edge a bit so it sticks closed.

I split my dough into 3 and rolled them that way.

Next cut the rolled dough into 1-2 inch slices. Place on baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until dough is golden brown. Eat and enjoy!

Now how easy is that? I used basil and roasted tomatoes in mine. It works best with ingredients that are not to large or heavy. Have fun and get the kids involved. They'll love it!

7 Days of Perfetto Pizza!
Day 1: Calzones

I'm back to cooking and blogging. And what better way to reenter the world of competitive vegan blogging then with one of the most loved foods ever-Pizza! But oh my friends, that is not all. How can that be? Even better than one delicious pizza recipe. I'm going to give you 7! Yes, it's another week of recipes. First off, a stuffed pizza to stuff your face (and belly) with. Enjoy!

16 oz dough
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1cup shredded vegan mozzarella cheese
1/2 shredded vegan cheddar cheese
favorite pizza toppings

Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Divide dough into 4 parts. Lay a bit of flour down and roll out each part of dough over it. I used some corn meal and added garlic powder too it for extra flavor. Once dough is nice and flat, spoon equal parts of sauce and cheese over half of each of the 4 rolled doughs. Then place topping on top.

Fold over the other half of the dough, and seal the edges by pinching with your fingers or pressing down with a fork. Place on baking pan and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until dough is a golden brown.

(After baking at 350 for 20 minutes)

I made two. One was bbq chicken with fake chicken, onions and bbq sauce instead of tomato. The second one was olive and pineapple (my favorite toppings) with tomato sauce. They were amazing. We ate them all even though it was enough for 4 people. That's how awesome they were.
