Bacon Ranch Stuffed Pizza Rolls

These make a great kid food, but they're still perfect for adults too. They'd even make a good appetizer or lunch. They are always a hit with my family!

Bacon Ranch Stuffed Pizza Rolls
-Adapted from Our Best Bites-

1 can of refrigerated pizza dough (or homemade)
1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix
2 Tbs. grated Parmesan cheese
1 Tbs. melted butter
1 1/2 c. cheese, cubed (I used 75% sharp cheddar and 25% mozzarella)
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 c. shredded chicken
BBQ sauce or good quality ranch dressing (or a mixture of both!)

Combine 1 tsp. ranch dressing mix with 1 1/2 Tbs. parmesan cheese. Set aside. Preheat oven to heat specified on pizza dough package. Usually it’s 425 degrees.

Prepare 3 bowls: shredded chicken (tossed with a few tablespoons of ranch or BBQ sauce if desired), crumbled bacon, cubed cheese

Unroll pizza dough onto a lightly floured surface. Pat or roll the dough so it’s about 12″ by 8″. Use a pizza cutter to cut it into 24 equal squares. Place cheese and desired toppings on each square.

When all dough squares have cheese and toppings on them, carefully lift up each square and wrap the dough around the toppings.
Grab the four corners and then squeeze the seams shut. Then place them seam side down in a lightly sprayed mini muffin tin. Brush tops with melted butter and sprinkle with the parmesan-ranch mixture.

Place your rolls in the oven and bake for 7-9 minutes. Serve with a side of ranch dressing or BBQ sauce for dipping.

(NOTE: These make a great freezer meal. Freeze stuffed dough balls in muffin tins before baking, then remove and place in a ziplock bag. Baking time may take a few extra minutes.)
