Cheesy Pizza Rolls
Hey there! I was going to say Happy Monday but I guess it is Tuesday. geez . . anyway, as the temperature here was a mere zero degrees, I needed something warm in my belly and these little pizza rolls were perfect for some comfort food! This recipe is for this month’s Recipe Redux’s pizza party theme!
I made this recipe just like you would make yummy cinnamon rolls, oh how I love cinnamon rolls. A little twist on your basic pizza and something a little different than my usual pizza pockets.
The dough was super simple and just needed three ingredients: self-rising flour, Greek yogurt and ground flaxseeds.
Just mix together dough ingredients and shape into a ball. The flaxseeds provide some extra fiber since we are not using 100% whole wheat flour.
I shredded up some zucchini to add to the rolls. I love zucchini and they are a great addition to any baking recipe, like my Zucchini Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins!
Roll out the dough and add sauce!
I also like to add a sprinkle of nutritional yeast which is full of B vitamins, protein and iron! Great to add on salads, too!
Feel free to add any pizza toppings, that is . . if you are scared to try the shredded zucchini, bawahahaha!
Cut about 1-inch slices and place them in a baking dish. Top with some extra cheese!
Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 to 25 minutes.
Here are my Cheesy Pizza Rolls! Enjoy!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl combine flour, flaxseed and Greek yogurt together. Fold dough into an oval. Roll out on a floured surface into a 12 by 7-inch rectangle and roll flat. Top dough with sauce, zucchini and top with cheese. Beginning at the 12-inch side, role up dough and pinch edge together to seal. Cut into 8 to 10 slices.
