When I saw these I wasn’t sure how Brooklyn would like them. She is not a fan of the frozen pizza rolls. She doesn’t like the sauce that’s inside. These rolls, don’t have any pizza sauce inside so I thought I’d give it a try. And when I can get them to cook with me, I occupy their time and as I’ve said before, the kids seem to enjoy the food more when they’ve had a hand in making it!
1 roll refrigerated pizza dough
1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix
2 T grated Parmesan cheese
1 T olive oil or melted butter
sharp cheddar cheese (I used 75% sharp cheddar and 25% mozzarella)
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (I used the crumbled bag of bacon bits in the dressing isle)
about 1 C shredded, cooked chicken.
3/4 C mayo
3/4 C milk (I used skim milk)
First take 1 teaspoon of your ranch dressing mix and combine it with 1 1/2 T parmesan cheese. Set aside. Combine the remaining ranch mix with 3/4 C mayo and 3/4 C milk and place in the fridge to chill.
Preheat oven to heat specified on pizza dough package. Usually it’s 400-425 degrees.
Unroll your pizza dough onto a lightly floured surface. Pat or roll the dough so it’s about 12″ by 8″. You’re going to want to cut it into 24 squares, so just eyeball it if you need to. Use a pizza cutter to slice the dough into 24 squares.
Place cheese and desired toppings on each square.
When all of your dough squares have cheese and toppings on them, carefully lift up each square and wrap the dough around the toppings.
Grab the four corners first and then squeeze the seams shut. Then place them seam side down in a lightly sprayed pie pan (or similar sized dish). Brush with melted butter or olive oil and sprinkle with the parmesan-ranch mixture.
Place them in the oven. Set your timer for 10 minutes and check on them after that. They may take up to 15 or 20 to be done. Take them out when they’re lightly golden on top.
I made a batch with a muffin pan as well.
Serve them warm with a side of freshly made ranch dressing for dipping.
I was concerned at first that one pan wasn’t going to feed the entire family, but it did. These were pretty good. I’d sure give these a try again!
Have a great day. Stop by often and feel free to leave comments. We love hearing from you.
