My kids LOVE pizza. Yes, I realize most of you could probably make the same statement about your own kids - or even yourself. Even the toddler loves it. He'll scarf down more slices than I can - it's like somehow his little brain knows this is a special treat and he better just enjoy it.
The other day my husband and I were watching tv and a commercial for Totino's pizza rolls came on. He made the comment that he'd never had a Totino's pizza roll, and I think my jaw hit the floor.
I need the cone of safety here, because I'm going to make a confession.
I. Love. Totino's.
*hangs head in shame* Honestly, I do. I haven't eaten them in years - seriously, years...but there was a time that I am not proud of where I lived off their reduced fat pepperoni rolls, tricking myself into thinking I was doing something HEALTHY. Bahahaha. Oh, naivety...
But really, they are freaky good. Addictively (is that a word?) good. Oh so bad for you good. Full of everything that's wrong with American food...right?
Still though - how does a grown man make it through life without ever popping one of these pepperoni morsels of goodness in his mouth? Since I'm not willing to go out and bring them into the home, I decided I would find a make at home version so he could at least get a little idea - a glimpse - of what he'd been missing all these years.
Enter Dashing Dish and her awesome recipe. The only thing I did differently was to omit the sweetener - I just didn't think it would be necessary.
This recipe is easy - you can tweak it a hundred different ways, use a hundred different fillings, and control exactly what you put into it. My kids loved these. My husband loved them. They are yummy little snacks, and would make a great appetizer. Throw some at your kiddos for lunch with some veggies on the side and they'll think you are awesome.
