- 1 lb pizza dough
- 1/2 cup marinara or pizza sauce
- 3 oz sliced pepperoni
- 2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
- 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
- basil for serving
Line a 9×9” baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
Lightly flour a work surface and roll the dough into an 8×12” rectangle. Spread the pizza sauce over the dough to the edges. Top with the pepperoni, then 1 3/4 cups of the mozzarella cheese. Starting on the long side, roll the dough up to form a log. Trim the edges if uneven, then cut the dough into 9 equal slices. Place the slices, cut side down, in the prepared baking dish, making 3 rows of 3 rolls each. Cover the dish with foil and let it sit to rise for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375ºF. Place the rolls in the oven, still covered, and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and return the pan to the oven and bake for an additional 20 minutes. The rolls should be browned and the cheese melted. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of mozzarella and the 1 tablespoon of parmesan over the top of the rolls, then return to the oven until the cheese is melted, about 3 minutes.
Let the rolls cool slightly in the pan, then top with the basil and serve.
