I’m trying to get my reins back into blogging, so please bear with me if my writing is rough around the edges. I’m stammering and trying to communicate my varied thoughts into a single post. I guess I need to take a step back and streamline my thoughts and slowly transition into delivering a good post. I remember the following quote by Steve Jobs when I think about this recipe —

“Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end.”


This recipe is not just simple, its quick and easy to make if you have few readily available ingredients. But just as the quote goes it’s worth it in the end. The recipe doesn’t score any points in appearance but the taste sure supersedes any drawbacks. In my opinion if a recipe is described quick, easy, and tasty then I can overlook the drawbacks. Wouldn’t you? If you decide to try it, do let me know if you agree with me.

Cheese Stick Pizza Rolls


  • Part-skim Mozzarella Sticks -- 8 oz
  • Pizza Dough (store bought/homemade) -- 1 pound
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil --as needed
  • Garlic Powder
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • Pizza Sauce -- 1/4 cup
  • Tomato Sauce for dipping


  1. Heat the oven to 425°F. Line baking sheet with a Silpat or parchment.
  2. Slice cheese stick into 1/4 inch width logs. Roll the pizza dough on floured work surface into a rectangle 8"x16" shape. Slice the dough into strips 2"x8". Spread pizza sauce on top of the dough. Arrange mozzarella logs on top of the sauce. Roll the dough and seal from all the sides. Gently roll it a few times against the surface. Repeat with remaining strips.
  3. Place the rolls on the baking sheet and let them rise for half hour. When ready to bake, brush the top of the rolls with olive oil, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and top with shredded parmesan cheese. Place them in the middle rack of the oven turning the heat down to 350 immediately. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until golden. Cool the rolls few minutes before serving with additional tomato sauce for dipping. Enjoy!
