Homemade Pizza Rolls

January is the month of Resolutions,
and also the month of breaking resolutions
in the name of Super Bowl Parties.
Luckily it's only one day, but 
we love to indulge in the countless
appetizers and dips, and whatever other
delights make their way to the party.

We also find this as a good opportunity
to experiment a little bit in the kitchen.
This week, we stepped in the kitchen to 
recreate a childhood favorite;


You will need:

1 package of square wontons
Pizza sauce (we made our own. Recipe below)
Olive Oil

For the Pizza Sauce*

1 Container of baby tomatoes
Olive Oil
½ Tbs. Red Pepper Flakes
½ Tbs. Paprika
1 Tbs. Italian Seasoning
1 Tbs. Minced Garlic

*Side note: I tend to sort of measure and taste,
 so these measurements are an estimate of the amounts
 I actually used, but I have made this recipe three
 times, and it has turned out AMAZING every time.

Coat the bottom of your sauce pan with olive oil and 
turn on Medium heat. Add all of our seasonings. 
Stir them into the oil. Then add your tomatoes. 
Cover your pan with a lid and simmer tomatoes
 for about 7-10 minutes, or until your tomatoes are soft,
 or can press down with a fork. 
(see picture below. Tomatoes will wilt)

Pour contents into a mixing bowl, to blend with
 an immersion blender, or into a food processor/blender.  
Blend the mixture until the consistency resembles that of a sauce.


Pizza Roll Mixture

1 block of mozzarella
1 link of peperoni
Pizza Sauce

Preheat the oven 425 Degrees

Mince up your cheese and peperoni into tiny cubes. 
Then add your *cooled* down pizza sauce to the mix.
 You do not want to add hot pizza sauce to
 the mix to prematurely melt your cheese.


Lay your wontons onto your baking sheet lined 
with parchment paper. Taking a spoon, place a small 
amount in the middle of each wonton. You do not
 want to put too much in the middle so the wontons 
do not overflow while backing. Then, taking some 
water, line the edges of the the wont, and fold it over, 
pressing the sides of the wonton to seal. Repeat this until 
your baking sheet is full. Taking a basting brush, dust a
 small amount of olive oil onto each pizza roll.

Bake in the oven for 10-14 minutes, or until golden. 
You make also broil them for a little bit after baking for a little crunch.

 Remove from oven, and
