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