Since we’ve been studying obesity as a chronic condition for several weeks, we are making healthier pizza rolls today.
Compared to Totino’s Pizza rolls,
these are much healthier with much fewer ingredients.
I adapted this recipe idea from Gunny Sack using our homemade white whole wheat dough and leftover cheese sticks I had on hand. It worked great and used up our extra resources: cheese sticks, pepperoni, Parmesan cheese and pasta sauce. It was quite frugal and easy for the kids to make right after a quiz since I had the dough made ahead of time.
I demonstrated how to wrap the pepperoni and cheese like a stork baby pinching the dough closed at the top.
After having them visualize the stork baby, they understood what I meant to pinch it closed. Kayon got the hang of it quickly.
Kiddos had a difficult time working with the stickier homemade dough vs. store-bought biscuits, but it worked as I worked in more flour on this humid day.
Very nice looking rolls, Kayon.
Healthier pizza rolls or unhealthy processed Totinos? Students got to decide. I think I know which one won.
