Recipe: Pizza Rolls on a Stick

I love this idea from Christy at from glitter to gumdrops.  Check out her blog for her inspiration and her clever take on a graduation gift.  I think this would make a good appetizer when served with a marinara sauce. 
Roll out dough - I purchased at the super market bakery - and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.  You can buy it shredded or do it yourself which I did.
Make three rows of pepperoni and sprinkle garlic powder, oregano and basil over the top.  I also added some fresh basil from the garden.  Leave spaces between pepperoni so cheese will help dough adhere to itself.
Roll as tight as possible from the long side after spreading a line of water along the three other edges to seal the edges and keep the roll from separating during baking.
Slice into 3/4 inch rounds and place on a Pam sprayed cookie sheet.
Bake at 425 degrees for about 10 minutes. Do not overcook.
Insert pointed end of skewer into the pizza roll while it is still hot.  Skewers are available at most super markets.  You can serve with a marinara dipping sauce. [I later checked out a site Christy mentioned on her blog and would probably spread the marinara sauce over the bread dough first.]
Or as Christy did, wrap in individual bags and place in a styrofoam lined bucket to give as a gift.  She has all the details on her blog.  You can purchase clear cellophane bags for this but I simply used plastic sandwich bags.
