Stuffed Pizza

These pizza rolls are a fun and interesting alternative to the normal pizzas that we enjoy around here. I used our standard pizza dough but I rolled it out thinner and then spread it with toppings/fillings before rolling. This one happens to be a sausage, cheese, and onion pizza roll...but nearly any combination would work. These are also great because each one can be individualized to meet each diners' taste.
Once they are filled and rolled they should be placed seam-side down, brushed with egg, topped with sesame or poppy seeds, and baked at 500 until golden. I would also suggest having a little extra sauce on the side for dipping.

Pizza Dough

¼ cup white wine
1 tsp. salt
1 cup warm water
1/2 Tbsp yeast
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp olive oil

In a bowl combine everything except flour. Let mixture sit for 4-5 minutes. Next, stir in flour ½ cup at a time until mixture comes together and forms a ball. Continue adding flour until the dough is not sticky. Turn out onto floured counter and knead until dough forms a smooth ball. (2-3 minutes) Rub a small amount of olive oil on dough and place in a large bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and then cover with a towel. Place in a warm spot for 1-2 hours. Dough should double in size.When you are ready to make the pizza, roll out dough and add desired toppings. Bake pizza in a 500 degree over until cheese is browned and bubbling.
(I never follow a recipe when I make this you may have to tinker with the measurements until you get it the way you like it.)
(This is a breeze if you have a stand mixer. Simply combine all ingredients except flour and mix with the dough hook. Then gradually add in flour until the dough forms a ball and pulls away from the sides of the bowl. After that just leave the mixer on for 4-5 minutes to knead the dough. Follow above instructions from this point on.)
