I just love this recipe! It’s made with pizza dough. Now who is not going to like it ? Right? It can be made ahead and frozen. I use my made from scratch pizza dough recipe, but you can use frozen dough or buy dough from your local pizzeria. Any way these are really special!
I googled the recipe to see if I would be lucky enough to find it because I cannot remember where I got the recipe. I’ve been using it for years. There are plenty of recipes that are similar to this one. Most of them make a huge amount using 3 pounds of pizza dough. I cannot imagine making that many rolls. WOW!

One of the last demonstrations that I did for my classes this year was homemade pizza dough. It is really easy to make and my students were in awe! I use my Kitchen Aid mixer with the dough hook, but the dough can be made in a food processor or using the dough cycle on a bread machine. All three work well. You can also make the dough by hand, but it will take a little more work.
One of my favorite appetizers is spinach and artichoke dip. This pizza from Real Simple is a sister to the dip! I love it!

Really it is light yet filling. So if you are in the mood for pizza and don’t want to go the meat lover’s way this one is for you.
Our first ever pizza lab was a great success. I will have to admit that I was a little leery of doing this lab. I even had a couple of sleepless nights thinking of everything that might go wrong and how I could plan ahead for it all to go smoothly. Thanks to Antoine and his boss from Stevie B’s Pizza in Douglasville this lab was an incredible experience for everyone. If you have never made homemade pizza you will be surprised at how easy it is, how great it taste, and how much money you save! Antoine brought in pizza dough ready to stretch out in pizza pans. We used pans with holes in them which makes for quicker cooking and a more crisp crust. You can find them a your local Wal-Mart. Here’s how we did it.
