Pizza Biscuit Rolls

O.K. anything that remotely resembles pizza is bound to be a big hit. Use some of the red sauce from the spaghetti and meatballs recipe under "Kid Friendly Suppers". I cut the veggies up really small so that they are't obvious. Lets get to it.

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.

These treats freeze well and are great for an on the go snack or to pack into a lunch kit for school.
Serve them with a green salad, some raw veggies or a bowl of steaming soup.

My kids love them. Hope they please your crowd too.
