As a kid, pizza rolls were an integral part of my diet plan. I liked to overcook them ever so slightly, so that the cheese oozed out just a little, and the crust hardened in a mess of burnt cheese deliciousness. Morning, noon, or night… it was always pizza roll time.
I miss pizza rolls. But the reformed, adult version of myself no longer allows such processed food to exist in the home, and thus I suffer a pizza-roll-less existence. Woe is me.
But no mas! I recently discovered the joy that are wonton wrappers, and began researching the endless possibilities of recipes I could use them in. There were lasagna bites, taco cupcakes, even fresh crab rangoons (sounds tedious). While those recipes sounded dreamy, I only had a jar of tomato sauce, shredded cheese, and some Italian salami and thus thirteen year old Jaclyn rejoiced: Pizza Rolls, at last.
