First Start with the filling.
- 1/2 onion, chopped finely
- 1/2 green pepper, chopped finely
- 1/2 red pepper, chopped finely
- 1 cup mushrooms, chopped finely
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1/2 c finely chopped pepperoni(optional)
- 1 1/2 cups marinara sauce or tomato sauce. Reserve the sauce when you make
- spaghetti and meatballs.
Saute the veggies in the oil until they are softened. About 5 min. Add the pepperoni and marinara sauce. Let mixture cool.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Second. The biscuits.
- 2 cups all purpose flour or use 1 cup whole wheat and 1 cup white
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
- 1/2 cup cold butter
- 3/4-1 cup milk
- 2 cups grated mozzarella
Combine first five ingredient in a large bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture until it is the size of oatmeal or small peas. I like to use a pastry cutter for this. If you do not have a pastry cutter you can use two knives or your fingers. Check out the technique on the video. Add the milk using the smaller volume and adding more if needed. Stir until mostly combined. Turn dough out onto countertop. Gently kneed the dough until it is well combined. Roll the dough out until it is about a 9 x 13 rectangle. Spread the cooled sauce evenly over the dough. Sprinkle mozzarella over sauce. Carefully roll the dough up. Cut it into 1 inch slices and place onto baking sheet pan(watch the video for a great tip on how to cut your slices so they are the same size).Bake at 350 degrees for 15 or 20 minutes until they are golden brown.
