Sloppy Joe Pizza rolls are the perfect thing to serve to a crowd of grown hungry men or messy kids. They have all of the wonderful nostalgic sweet flavors of a sloppy joe, but are carefully wrapped up in a pizza roll ball. In other words, delicious Sloppy Joes without the sloppy!
For this recipe I made homemade pizza dough. Pizza dough is extremely easy to make, especially if you have a heavy-duty mixer. If you are short on time, store-bought pizza dough will work too. Did you know that if you pour a little bit of cold water into your hot oven after you put the rolls in, that it creates a steam that will make your crust crunchy and delicious? I always use this step when making any sort of bread and it results in a Paris Bakery Style Crust!
While strolling through Walmart and contemplating what to make for the afternoon game, I saw these gorgeous bell peppers, and knew they had to be included. I love adding bell peppers to my Sloppy Joes because it adds a little extra sweetness and crunch. I also picked up a can of MANWICH and RO*TEL, and was on my merry way.
Once home I quickly made the dough and the filling. To assemble the rolls, you want to first divide your dough into 9 equal parts. You should also spray your 9×9 inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.Next you will want to flatten the dough.
Place about a tablespoon of filling in the center of the flattened dough.
Carefully pull edges up and over filling. Pinch together and place seam down in the pan.
Allow rolls to raise again for about 15 minutes.
Once ready to bake, brush with olive oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
So, if you are looking for a easy and delicious game day recipe that brings all the boys to yard, this is it! Enjoy!
