The Ree Drummonds Pizza Pigs in a Blanket recipe is a fun spin on the classic
Pigs in a Blanket are usually mini cocktail veners that are wrapped in crescent-shaped rolls, brushed with butter, and baked. Drummond’s took the classic appetizer and put its own pizza-flavored spin on it and it’s super easy to make.
Drummond showed off how to make his easy Pizza Pigs in Blanket recipe on an episode of The Pioneer Woman and started with a disclaimer. “I just use — not exactly impressive, but very handy — pizza dough that comes in a roll, sold in the refrigerated section,” she admits. “We all know what I’m talking about.”
After opening the can of pizza dough, he patted it into a 14-by-10-inch rectangle, then cut the dough into 32 rectangles. To assemble the appetizers, Drummond placed a spoonful of marinara sauce on each rectangle, then topped it with a slice of mozzarella, a sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes, and a slice of pepperoni. She placed a mini hot dog on the dough and turned it upside down, then placed it seam-side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
leading lady The star brushed each rolled-up treat with egg wash and sprinkled Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning on top “for a little crust.” She baked the appetizers in a 425-degree Fahrenheit oven for 15 minutes, then placed them on a platter and served breakfast with a marinara dipping sauce. “It’s great like a football game on TV,” she said. “It’s great for anything.”

Drummond Invented an Easy Pizza Roll Recipe
Drummond shared his easy pizza roll recipe in a 2016 blog post leading lady The website described how he made “Crazy Rolls” from leftover cinnamon roll dough. “I was working without a recipe, and I had no plans,” Drummond wrote. “The idea came together in about 5 minutes. I had a similar idea to start a blog 10 years ago.”
leading lady The star found that the dough wasn’t perfect for pizza rolls and shared, “I decided the next time I make these babies, I’d use a real pizza dough with a little more chew to it. This dough pizza was a little too soft to pass for.”
Drummond rolled the dough into a rectangle, smeared it with olive oil and sprinkled on the salt. Then he applied pizza toppings: marinara sauce, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, and Jared pesto.
The Food Network host rolled out the dough and cut it into slices, then placed the rolls on a baking sheet and baked them in a 400°F oven for 15 to 18 minutes.
