This post brought to you by Sister Schubert’s ~ These Stuffed Pizza Rolls are filled with our favorite pizza toppings, pizza sauce and plenty of gooey cheese. During the holiday season we cooks have to be ready to serve foods that will suit every guests taste. That’s no small fete and it’s always a challenge. Especially when it comes to the youngest ones and the picky palates around the table. Every gracious host and hostess knows the importance of planning special memorable dishes for everyone to enjoy. Don’t we all associate special meals and favorite dishes with the loved ones who made them? It’s one of the most heartwarming parts of my family’s holiday meal celebrations.
Knowing that even the pickiest eaters in our family love pizza, gives me the perfect opportunity to make it extra special using Sister Schubert’s Parker House rolls in place of the crust. These stuffed pizza rolls can be assembled the night before then tightly wrapped and stored in the fridge. Just before baking, unwrap and brush liberally with seasoned butter then sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese. You can serve them hot straight from the oven as an appetizer or along with the main dish meal. They’re so tasty that everyone will be reaching for one of these gooey and delicious stuffed pizza rolls.
