PIZZA STUFFED ROLLS
I love recipes that can be used for a variety of occasions. These Pizza Stuffed Rolls are incredibly delicious. My entire family LOVED them. The gooey cheese when you split apart or bite into each roll is my favorite part.
We dip them in marinara sauce, which you are in luck because I have THE BEST EVER Marinara Sauce Recipe here on the blog! Or you can dip them in some PERFECT Homemade Alfredo Sauce, which based on the reviews, is one of the best out there too ;)
You definitely need to put this recipe on the menu! My kids could not stop raving about them, which when that happens- I know the recipe is a winner!
These are perfect for any occasion and work great as an appetizer, main dish or side dish.
