Pizza Roll-Up

This is such a fun spin on traditional pizza!! It was super easy to eat....especially for our 2 year old. I was skeptical if it would cook all the way through or not, but it turned out perfect! I will definitely be making this again!

1 recipe quick pizza dough, found here
Any toppings you like for your pizza (we chose the traditional pepperoni and cheese)
1 T olive oil
1 egg

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Roll the dough on a lightly floured surface.
It should be a large rectangle, about 12x16 inches and about 1/4 inch thick.

Arrange any toppings you like for your pizza. We just did the traditional pepperoni with sauce, mozzarella and pepperoni. Just make sure that you don't go overboard on the toppings or it won't cook all the way through.

Roll the dough into a thin cylinder, gently tucking in the ends. Brush the entire roll with 1 T Olive oil and 1 egg beaten together and season with the salt & pepper, Italian seasoning and more cheese if you like (I used shredded Asiago...can't beat it folks!)

Place the dough, seam-side down, on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes until the top is golden brown.

Cool the roll for 5 minutes, then use a serrated knife to cut it into 3/4-inch slices. Serve with extra pizza sauce if you like. Enjoy!!
