If you’ve only had pizza rolls out of a box, you’re missing out. There’s a reason wrapping things in dough and cooking them is so popular world-wide; it’s simple, portable and utterly delicious. This taco pizza roll is the perfect example, and it's simple enough that you won’t be tempted to go out for the fast food version.
If you’ve ever had a make-your-own taco party, you know exactly what this entails and which ingredients you don’t want to skip. These roll-ups are just as simple and easy to personalize as tacos but even tastier, if that’s possible, because they are also pizza.

Taco-filled pizza rolls
4
15 minutes
15 minutes
30 minutes
1 lb. premade pizza crust
1 cup tomato-based salsa
1 can black beans
1/3 cup rotisserie chicken, shredded
Hot sauce (optional)
1/3 cup shredded cheese
1 egg, beaten
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Roll out the pizza dough to about 1/4 inch thick, and cut out 2- to 3-inch circles with a glass or a cookie cutter.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and lay out the dough circles, leaving a half inch of space between them.
Leaving a small border around the outside, place a 1/2 tablespoon-sized dollop of salsa on each circle of dough.
Top with a teaspoon of black beans, a teaspoon of shredded chicken, a dash of hot sauce (optional) and a pinch of shredded cheese.
Dip a finger in water, and wet half of the outer edge of the dough. Fold the circle in half, and pinch the edges together.
Brush the rolls with an egg wash.
Bake them for 14 to 15 minutes, or until browned and crispy on the outside.
