Ingredients

1 pkg
active dry yeast
1 c
very warm water(100 degrees)
2 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1 Tbsp
sugar
1/2 tsp
salt
2 Tbsp
olive or vegetable oil
2 tsp
minced garlic, divided
1 Tbsp
melted butter
1 1/2 tsp
italian seasoning
pizza sauce
shredded mozzarella
grated parmesan cheese
chopped pepperoni

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Sprinkle dry yeast into warm water. Stir to moisten and let stand until foamy, about 5 mins.
2
In medium bowl combine flour, salt, sugar, 1 teaspoon minced garlic and 1 teaspoon italian seasoning.
3
Add yeast and water mixture to dry ingredients followed by the oil. Mix well. Turn out onto floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 mins. More flour may be added if dough is too sticky.
4
Place dough back into bowl and let rest for 10 mins. On lightly floured surface, roll dough out into a 9 X 14 rectangle.
5
For Garlic & Cheese rolls:
Add remaining teaspoon minced garlic to melted butter and brush over dough keeping 1/2 inch from edges. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning, parmesan and mozzarella cheese (the amount is up to you, I use a about a tablespoon parmesan and at least a 1/2 cup mozzarella).
6
Begin rolling dough along a 14 inch side and roll tightly, turning seam side down to seal edges. Cut into generous 1" slices and place on greased cookie sheets. Let rise while oven is preheating.
7
For pepperoni pizza rolls:
Roll out dough as before. Spread with a thin layer of pizza sauce(again, the amount is up to you) keeping 1/2 inch from the edges. Sprinkle with the cheeses and then chopped pepperoni or other favorite pizza toppings. Roll up and slice as before.
8
Bake at 425 degrees for 8 to 12 minutes until golden and cheese is bubbly.
