Pizza Rolls

My friend Julie made this for her family and they loved it!  I think this is excellent for this little hands to pick up!! :)  And... who doesn't like pizza?  YUM!

She said it does take a little effort, but she made 2 13x9 pans of it and froze some of the leftovers! What a great idea!

* 1 2/3 cups warm water (70 to 80 degrees F)
* 2 tablespoons nonfat dry milk powder
* 2 tablespoons sugar
* 2 tablespoons shortening
* 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
* 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
* 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast

* 1/2 cup chopped onion
* 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
* 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
* 1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
* 1 tablespoon olive oil
* 1/3 cup pizza sauce
* 1/2 cup diced pepperoni
* 1 cup shredded pizza cheese blend
* 1/4 cup chopped ripe olives
* 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

- Mix the first six ingredients on dough setting in the bread maker. (I used my Kitchen Aid with the dough hook. Once it was kneaded, I let it rise until doubled.) You could also use frozen bread dough - thaw and rise.

- Saute the peppers, onions, mushrooms in the oil until tender. Cool.

- Divide dough into two balls. Turn dough onto a floured surface. Let rest 5 mins. Roll into a 10x16 in. rectangle.

-Top with sauce, veggies, pepperoni, and cheese. Add any extra topping you like.

-From the long side of the rectangle, roll up. (Like cinnamon rolls.) Pinch seam. Cut each roll into 12 pieces. Place 12 rolls in each 9x13 pan.

-Sprinkle with parmesean, cover and let rise until doubled. Bake 18-22 mins. at 375.

-Serve with extra pizza sauce for dipping.
