Salt and Pepper Rolls


The ultimate dinner roll is within your grasp. We flavored these rolls with coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper, but feel free to experiment with sprinklings of 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


  1. 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.
