24 oz pizza dough

1 large egg, beaten

2 c ricotta cheese

12 oz Italian sausage, casing removed

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1 tsp red chili flakes, or to taste

Salt to taste

1/2 c thinly sliced green onions

1/2 c pecorino Romano cheese, plus more to finish


Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.

Take the pizza dough. Roll it out on a floured surface shaping it into a rectangle measuring 12×18 inches.

Using a brush lightly coat the dough with half of the beaten egg.

Next spread ricotta cheese onto the dough in rows leaving some space, between each row.

Place sausage between the rows of ricotta.

Season with black pepper, red chili flakes and a pinch of salt for added flavor.

Evenly sprinkle onions and pecorino Romano cheese over the dough.

Starting from the bottom tightly roll up the dough until you reach the end. Make sure to keep the seam at the bottom to prevent unraveling during baking.

Cut this rolled-up dough into 12 portions. Arrange them on your prepared baking sheet.

Brush the tops of each portion with the remaining beaten egg. If desired you can also add pecorino Romano cheese for cheesiness!

Place, in your preheated oven and bake for approximately 45 to 50 minutes or until they turn golden brown and are cooked through.
