POP – A – WHEELIE
I just can’t get enough of that basic dough recipe! Now, I transformed it into “pinwheel” shapes and decided that all those beautiful colors of the Colombian bus matched all the ingredients perfectly! So, I just had to include it in the photo. Besides, that bus is a gift from our son-in-law purchased when both he and our daughter visited his family in Medellin (Med-a-jeen). That is an authentic replica of the buses that are used in his country. Pretty exotic, eh? And, as you can see, it’s doing a “wheelie” over the snacks. Here’s a “wheelie verdict ” from our son-in-law: “Mmmmm…….very, very good. Thanks, Mom.” Lucky, ain’t I?
Basically, there are 4 different fillings for these: (1) broccoli & asiago cheese, (2) salami & provolone, (3) virginia ham & swiss cheese, and
(4) tomato & mozzarella cheese.
Make the basic dough ( recipe is on this blog under the “extraordinary pizza”, or, “pizza my heart” instructions). Cut a piece of dough about 4″ long and about 2″ wide. Roll it out into a long log about 16″ long and about 4″ wide, if you can; basically, as thin as you can make it and still have control! You want to be able to roll it up kinda like you would make a sushi roll.
To each “log” spoon or place the fillings along one long side. Place the cheeses down first and then just layer the other half of the filling on top of the cheese. Roll up from the long side and try to keep the seam side up. If need be, you may need to dampen the edge to hold the log together.
Using a dough cutter or sharp knife, make 1/2″ to 1″ slices. Place cut side down onto a Pam-sprayed baking sheet. Bake in a pre-heated oven at about 400 degrees for approximately 15-20 minutes, until golden brown.
Enjoy the “fiesta”!!
