HI LEIGH JANTAC. WELCOME AS A NEW FOLLOWER!
Last week Leslie and I found something we really liked and came up with a recipe for Pizza Friday, our version of a PULL APART PIZZA. I have seen several variations, (using cut up Rhodes dinner rolls, cut up Pillsbury biscuits...) but our idea is easier, and (probably) tastier.
Our local Super Target carries a "6 Count Mini Pull Apart" roll in the bakery dept. ($2.99) It was great when we had it last week dipped in marinara sauce, so this week we made pizza.
PIZZA PULL APART
Michelle (me) and Leslie
The rolls have 3-4 sections. Pull apart the sections and tear each section into 3 to 4 pieces. Layer in a sprayed 9x13 pan. (You can use a smaller pan and make the "pizza" thicker.)
I drizzled a bit of marinara sauce sauce on it to keep it moist. (O.K. Really it was Hunt's 4 Cheese ;0)
I could have put other pizza toppings on it now, but Doug wanted cheese. So... I generously sprinkled it with (pre) grated mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle the cheese in a way that it melts the pieces together. (If you are building more than 1 layer, put cheese between the layers/pieces.)
I baked it at 350* for about 15 mins., until the cheese was melted and the "crust" was hot.
It took less than 5 minutes from start to oven. And that included going downstairs for a can of sauce. I served sauce on the side for dipping. We had a salad and strawberries.
Almost everyone loved it. (Total credit goes to the Garlic Rolls.) Doug thought it was too garlicky. Emily just did not like it. Debbie thought it was a bit too bready. (She's not a big bread eater.) For everyone else, it was a HIT!
These Target rolls (located by the Naan bread at our store.) are on my "What I buy" grocery list. Perfect (easy) side for soups, stews, pastas, salads...
