Pizza Roll & Cajun Fries

I know it’s only Tuesday, but if you ask me, it’s never too early in the week for pizza, especially if it includes a side of cajun fries!

Pizza Dough and Toppings

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups bread flour
  • 1/4 cup AP flour
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 1/2-2 tbsps granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 5-6 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 package of active dry yeast
  • Oil, for greasing

Toppings:

  • Pepperonis
  • Sausages or sausage links, lightly peppered and sea salted
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 tsp parsley
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder

Directions:

  1. Mix flours into a large mixing bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, add sugar, salt, and oil to the warm water. Add yeast to water mixture and stir. Cover for 2-3 minutes to let bubbles rise.
  3. Pour water mixture into flour. Knead the dough for roughly 3-5 minutes, or until softer and less sticky.
  4. Roll dough into ball and place in a lightly oiled bowl. Cover the bowl with a towel and place in a warm spot. Let dough rise for 1-1 ½ hour.
  5. Cook pepperonis and sausages on stovetop (do this roughly 10 minutes before dough is done rising).
  6. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Lightly grease pizza stone with olive oil if necessary.
  7. Separate pizza dough in half. Refrigerate half for use at a later date.
  8. Combine parslet, oregano, basil, and onion powder in a small bowl. Set aside.
  9. Roll out dough onto pizza stone and cut in half.
  10. Fill dough with cheese, sausage, and pepperonis. Close the sides and end pieces of the dough together to form a log shape. Flip dough over to hide creasing. Repeat with other roll.
  11. Top unbaked pizza roll with parsley mixture. Repeat with other roll. Cook for roughly 10-13 minutes or until pizza roll is golden brown on top.
  12. Serve with marinara/pizza sauce.
