Salt and Pepper Rolls
Play with different seasonings on these rolls, such as crushed fennel seeds or red-pepper flakes.
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 pound pizza dough, thawed if frozen
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, with rack in lower third. Place 2 tablespoons olive oil in an 8-inch square baking dish. Divide pizza dough into 16 pieces. Form each piece into a tight ball and place in dish, turning to coat with oil. Cover dish with plastic wrap; set aside in a warm, draft-free place until balls double in size, 40 to 45 minutes (or refrigerate overnight; bring to room temperature and let rise before baking). Season each roll with salt and pepper and bake until golden brown, 35 minutes. Brush rolls with 1 tablespoon oil and let cool slightly. Serve warm.
