1 teaspoon garlic salt
2 teaspoons basil
1 cup sliced pepperoni, chopped
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Divide pizza dough in half. Roll each half into a rectangle, about 1/4 inch thick and 12 inches long. Sprinkle each half with equal amounts of garlic salt, basil, cheeses and pepperoni. Starting at a short end, roll dough up tightly to form a log. Slice into 1-inch pieces. Place rolls on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes or until browned on top. Serve with warm marinara sauce for dipping.
These pizza rolls are a big hit with kids, and work well as an appetizer or a main dish. On my last trip to the grocery store, I found Pepperoni Minis by Hormel--cute little miniature pepperonis that are perfect for this recipe (no chopping required). To save time, you could use prepared pizza dough. I resort to this time-saving method often, although I think the homemade stuff is so much better. Feel free to adapt the recipe to include any of your favorite pizza toppings.

This is an original recipe, although I'm sure I'm not the first person to come up with the idea.
