Pizza Buns


Pizza Buns
This is my go to recipe for school lunches and easy appetizers. 
Totally yummie!

I wrap them individually in saran wrap and freeze them for lunches.  I have served them at our Mad Hatter Tea Party, this Poker Night Birthday Party and shared the recipe once before. 
Everyone loves them!  I hope that you will too.

Pizza Buns
The goods:
5.5 oz tomato paste
1 1/2 – 2 cups shredded mozzarella
40 rounds of pizza pepperoni
2 rounds of white bread dough
I use my 1.5 lb breadmaker to make the dough and split it into two batches. 
That is enough to make 24 pizza buns.
Pizza Buns
Begin by spreading the dough into a large rectangle.
Pizza Buns
Spread half of the tomato paste over the dough.  Leave one edge of the dough free of toppings.
Pizza Buns
Sprinkle with 3/4 – 1 cup of mozzarella.
Pizza Buns
Layer with 20 pieces of pepperoni in two rows.
Pizza Buns
Now begin rolling the dough into a log.  Work towards the edge with no toppings.
Pizza Buns
Stretch the final edge over top of the roll and pinch the dough together.
Pizza Buns
Slice the roll into 1″ segments.  Repeat these steps with the second round of dough.
Pizza Buns
Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
Pizza Buns
Go ahead.  Betcha can’t eat just one 😉 
If you’re looking for them to last more than an hour…

    I’ve been trying these for my l.o. For some time. Still can’t get to slice them easily. ¿Any suggestions? I’ve been thinking of freezing them before baking, but not sure if the cold would affect dough.
