Pizza Rolls

Every year our family friends have a tailgate party at their house for a Chicago Bears game. This year they decided to have it for the first Bears game of the year. It is always nerve wrecking when you are a Chicago fan for the first game because you never know how the season is going to go. The Bears showed up today, so the season is getting off to a great start! Go Bears!!

Everyone always brings a dish to the tailgate party. I was looking at a lot of different appetizers to bring and I settled on Pizza Rolls. I have never made anything like these before. You basically make a pizza and then roll it up into a log. It was super easy until it came time to cut the log. The ingredients did not want to stay in a nice pinwheel very well. But I haphazardly put them together and they came out pretty good once they were baked. When I took them out to serve, they were gone in under five minutes! Everyone really liked them. And they are very kid friendly. I mean what kid doesn't like pizza?
