“Kind-a” Pizza Rolls - Gluten-Free Option

Again, I changed directions mid-stream.  It was supposed to be biscuits today.  Then I remembered some rolls that my good friend Cathy over at The Dutch Bakers Daughter made. Of course, my rolls will never look as good as hers.

AND it’s Super Bowl Sunday!

I have made different flavors or cheese rolls and thought it was time to step it up a bit.  Unfortunately, my dough was a bit soft, so I had to mush it out and scrape it into a roll.  Then I just scooped the ‘rolls’ one by one and shaped with a damp spatula.  So they may not look like much, but they are GOOD!

I guess I am willing to try baking almost anything as the gluten-free version because I like baking before I had to go gluten-free. 

The taste like pepperoni pizza without the sauce.  So serve sauce on the side, if you like.  I like them as is. So there goes the  name “kind-a”
