The plan was to bake the pizzas, put popsicle sticks in them, pour batter over them, stick the Pizza Rolls in the batter, wrap them in plastic wrap and freeze them — to make sure the Pizza Rolls would stick to the pizza — and then deep fry them to heat them back up. It was a complete failure right from the beginning when I couldn’t even get the popsicle sticks to stay in the pizzas.
Not wanting to waste a bunch of pizzas and Pizza Rolls however, I decided to use the mini pizzas as taco shells, fill them with Pizza Rolls, top them with mozzarella cheese, pizza sauce and freshly grated Sartori Parmesan cheese. Shout-out to Sartori by the way for constantly keeping the cheese drawer in my refrigerator stocked with all the amazing cheese they produce.
Not only did the Pizza Roll Pizza Tacos taste amazing, but as I was sitting on my patio eating them and enjoying a beer — yep, it finally stopped snowing here in Milwaukee — I think I actually figured out a way to make the Pizza Roll breaded pizza popsicle thing work, so it’s back to the kitchen for me!
