Stuffed pizza rolls

My family loves these pizza rolls. My oldest boy tells
me I'm the best cook when I make these. :)
1 roll refrigerated pizza dough (or make your own)
marinara/pizza sauce
2 T grated Parmesan cheese
1 T olive oil or melted butter
1/2 t garlic powder
1 t dried Italian seasoning
mozzarella cheese
Pizza toppings of your choice: ham and pineapple,
pepperoni slices, sausage, etc.

Preheat oven to heat specified on pizza dough package.
About 400 degrees.
Unroll your pizza dough onto a lightly floured surface.
Pat or roll the dough so it's about 12" by 8". You're
going to want to cut it into about 24 squares.
Use a pizza cutter to slice the dough into 24 squares
Place cheese and desired topping on each square.
When your dough squares have cheese and toppings
on them, carefully lift up each square and
wrap the dough around the toppings.
Pinch to make sure each ball is sealed shut and then place
them seam side down in a lightly sprayed pie pan.
Brush the tops of the dough balls with olive oil or
melted butter and then sprinkle with the garlic
and Italian seasoning and top with Parmesan cheese.

Cook them in the oven for about 15-20 minutes or
until golden brown on top

Serve warm with warmed marinara sauce on the side for dipping.
