Homemade Pizza Buns Recipe
- 1 lb. Pizza dough, at room temperature
- 2 Tbsp. Olive oil
- ¾ cup Classico Riserva Roasted Garlic Pasta Sauce
- 1 cup Cheese, grated (Mozzarella or cheddar, your choice)
- 3 Tbsp. Kraft 100% Parmesan Aged Grated Cheese
- Pre-heat oven to 425ºF.
- Roll out pizza dough to 12-inch square. Can lightly floured surface so dough dos not stick
- Brush rolled out dough with oil and then layer pasta sauce, toppings (optional), and cheeses to within ½ inch of edges
- Roll up up pizza dough to create a log and cut into 1-inch-thick slices. Place, cut sides down, in baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
- Bake 15 to 18 min. or until golden brown.
- Cool for 5 minutes then use a knife to gently cut apart the pizza buns to serve.
Make sure the pizza dough is at room temperature for easy rolling. If it is too cold it will not stretch out. If you are short on time warm the dough in the microwave on 50% power for 20 second intervals flipping each time until it is soft. You can customize these homemade pizza buns with any toppings you desire. Add in pepperoni, diced onions or peppers, fresh basil to add in more flavour and create variety.
