This is my go to recipe for school lunches and easy appetizers.
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.
Begin by spreading the dough into a large rectangle.
Spread half of the tomato paste over the dough. Leave one edge of the dough free of toppings.
Sprinkle with 3/4 - 1 cup of mozzarella.
Layer with 20 pieces of pepperoni in two rows.
Now begin rolling the dough into a log. Work towards the edge with no toppings.
Stretch the final edge over top of the roll and pinch the dough together.
Slice the roll into 1" segments. Repeat these steps with the second round of dough.
Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
Go ahead. Betcha can't eat just one ;)
If you're looking for them to last more than an hour...
