Tonight is the big "Idol" S12 premiere--with Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, and Keith Urban replacing the aforementioned J.Lo and Steven--and since tonight's auditions take place in New York, a city known for its fantastic Italian cuisine, Sarah is going with Italian pinwheels for her kickoff recipe. Check out her spicy snack suggestion for what is sure to be a spicy premiere episode!
4oz package prosciutto, chopped
1.5 tbsp sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup shredded parmesan
1 package refrigerated thin-crust pizza dough
1 egg, beaten
marinara sauce for dipping
parsley for garnish
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Combine the prosciutto and next six ingredients through the egg white in a large bowl. Mix until well-combined.
Lay out the pizza crust on a floured surface and spread the prosciutto mixture evenly on top. Starting with the longest side, roll the pizza dough into a log and pinch the sides closed. Refrigerate until nice and cool.
Using a serrated knife (dip in water to prevent sticking) slice the log into half-inch slices. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and brush with the egg wash. Bake until golden brown, around 15-20 minutes.
Spoon the marinara sauce into a small ramekin for dipping and sprinkle with the parsley.
