These pizza rolls are another inspiration from the Old Chicago’s menu. (What can I say? Pizza speaks to me.)
They are spectacular for taking to a casual social gathering – (sports ball viewing parties, etc). Flavorful, gooey, wonderful…
Is it weird that I am totally enamored with how pretty they look in the pan?
Call off your diet and let’s get to cooking!
- Ranch Dressing
- 50 large slices of pepperoni or 100 of the mini slices.
- 2 cans of Pilsbury buttermilk biscuits
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
- All-purpose pre-mixed Italian Seasonings
- 2 cups shredded Pepperjack cheese
- ½ cup shredded Parmesan
- 2 eggs, beaten
- Pizza sauce
- Preheat oven to 425.
- Open up the scary popping biscuit can and remove a single biscuit. Flatten and stretch the biscuit until it's about 50% wider than usual.
- Place a teaspoon sized dollup of ranch dressing in the center of the biscuit
- Place a slice of pepperoni on the dollup of ranch.
- Sprinkle with about a tablespoon of Pepperjack cheese, and then dust lightly with garlic and onion powder.
- If you looove pepperoni or are using the mini-sized slices, add another piece over the cheese.
- Gather up the edges of the biscuit (pretend like it is a little pouch of goodness) and pinch together until it is sealed tightly.
- Place the pouch-o-goodness seam side down in a 9 x 13 baking pan.
- Rinse and repeat the process with biscuit pouches until you run out of biscuits or run out of pans to hold them.
- Brush the biscuit pouches with beaten egg.
- Sprinkle biscuits with Parmesan and Italian Seasonings.
- Bake for 18-25 minutes or until golden brown.
- Serve with a side of pizza sauce.
