Cheesy Pizza Bombs
In Maddi's Fridge, Cheesy Pizza Bombs are a frozen food that are more of a treat than a nutritious meal. Luis, Sofia's little brother, reeeeally wants his mom to serve Cheesy Pizza Bombs for dinner. Below is my version:
Makes 8 - 3 inch Cheesy Pizza Bombs
One pound pizza dough, preferably homemade
Unbleached all-purpose flour, for work surface
4 - 6 Tablespoons tomato sauce
dash of dried oregano
dash of dried parsley
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Favorite pizza toppings (olives, pepperoni, bell pepper, etc.)
A rimmed baking sheet greased with olive oil or lined with parchment paper (the reason we call them Cheesy Pizza Bombs Is because they are messy!)
Preheat the oven to 425°F.
On a lightly floured work surface, roll dough out to a 10-by-6-inch rectangle.
Spread the tomato sauce on top. Sprinkle dried oregano and parsley to taste. Sprinkle the cheese on top. Add your other favorite pizza toppings. Starting at one of the long sides, roll the dough up into one big super-cheesy pizza log, pinching it closed where the second long side meets the log.
Cut the log into eight pieces. Place the pieces cut-side down on a well-greased rimmed baking sheet. Leave at least an inch spacing between the pieces. Bake until the cheese is bubbling, 10 to 12 minutes.
Cool and share with a friend!
