Pizza Rolls

Book club starts at 7:30 and as luck would have it, I was scheduled to host during one of my busiest work weeks.  I got off the subway at 7:10 and still hadn’t picked up any ingredients.  By 7:25 I was in my apartment after running through the grocery store to pick up the four items needed to make the easiest thing I could think of: pizza rolls.  I had never made them before but have seen plenty of variations on Pinterest so I just went with it.  Luckily, it worked and every pizza roll was eaten by the end of the evening…not bad for a 5 minute dish!

I’m sure when you read pizza rolls, you’re thinking Totino’s from the freezer aisle.  That’s not these.  But don’t knock those frozen babies – that was the drunk food of choice for my apartment senior year.  It’s amazing how quickly a group of four girls can tear through a large bag (90 count) of those after a night at the bars. Anyway, this is a different take that’s just as easy to make:  Fill Pillsbury crescent rolls with shredded mozzarella and pepperoni.  Bake according to package directions.  Heat up marinara sauce in the microwave.  Serve.  It may not be fancy, but it’s good.
