  6. Spoon the pizza sauce over the cheese in a thin layer, spreading it evenly with the back of the spoon.
  7. Starting from one long edge, tightly roll the dough into a log, sealing the seam and ends.
  8. Using a sharp knife, slice the dough into 1-inch thick rolls and place them in the prepared baking dish, with the cut side facing up.

Baking

  1. If desired, sprinkle additional grated Parmesan cheese over the tops of the rolls for extra flavor.
