Margarita pizza dough rolls stuffed with mozzarella, rich tomato sauce and fresh basil is the ultimate easy snack or lunch.

Weekends are just made for pizza, aren’t they? In the Ryder household, we have pizza pretty much every single weekend. Whether we make it ourselves or order in, we are indulging in some sort of cheese-topped-dough weekly. And I’m not even a little bit mad about that.

Margarita pizza rollsThese Margarita pizza rolls are the much easier, more laid-back cousin of my ultimate favourite pizza, the Margarita. To me, you can’t do much better than good, crusty-yet-chewy dough, flavourful tomato sauce, good mozzarella and fresh basil. A Margarita pizza is a classic for a reason. These Margarita pizza rolls have all the same characteristics but all those delectable flavours are presented in these adorable rolls. These gloriously stuffed rolls are perfect served as a side dish, as an easy snack or a casual lunch but let’s be honest. Eating them straight out of the oven with the cheese melting all over the place is the only way I really want to be enjoying them. Dipped into some more of that glorious pizza sauce, they are simple perfection.

    Could I add other pizza toppings to the filling? I’m thinking mushrooms and bacon would be awesome.

      Most definitely. I would just cook off any vegetables first as they might release a lot of water which wouldn’t be great inside the pizza rolls.
