So in my search for options, I stumbled upon this idea and the kids loved the idea. So last night I let the dough rise while we ate dinner and quickly finished them afterwards. They were super easy to make, the cutting/shredding was the most work. My kids like their pizza fairly plain so I didn't add more than the cheese and ham but the sky's the limit!
The dough recipe is actually one that claims to be Pizza Hut's recipe and I thought it came pretty close. I used the same recipe for bread sticks and they were good, I over baked them or I'd post a picture. Another day. I used my kitchen aid to make the dough which made it even easier, I hate getting my hands covered in dough.
1 1/3 cups warm water
1 tbsp traditional yeast
Let this ferment for 5 minutes, then add;
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp oil
4 cups flour
Stir the everything (but the flour) together until smooth. Add the flour one cup at a time. After about 2 or 3 cups of flour you will knead to switch to the dough hook attachment and let it knead for 5 minutes. Let the dough rise covered for about 1 1/2 hours. Divide into two balls and roll both dough balls into a rectangular piece.
Now prepare it like you would for your favourite pizza, but instead of baking it like a traditional pizza, roll it up jelly roll style. Then cut into 3/4" slices, I used fishing line because it gives me a nice clean cut without squishing all the fillings out. I let this rise for 20-30 minutes and then baked them in the oven at 350F until golden.
And that's all there is to it, hope you (and your kids) enjoy them!
