Jalapeno Cheese Bites
1 Packet (about 300 to 310g) Fresh Pizza Dough (available at Whole Foods Market)
2 Jalapeno Peppers, halved, seeded, blanched, and sliced
1 to 1 ½ tsp Olive Oil
Coarsely Ground Black Pepper
1 tsp Mixed Dried Herbs (Oregano, Parsley, Basil)
100 g Tex-Mex Shredded Cheese Blend
Baking sheet, lined with parchment paper
Center a rack in the oven and preheat the oven to 400˚F/200˚C.
Press down the dough on a lightly flour surface. Then pull and stretch the dough into a rectangular shape.
Spread the oil onto the dough, and gently press it into 14 by 8 inches rectangle. Then sprinkle some sea salt, mixed herbs, ground black pepper, and scatter the cheese, and Jalapeno peppers.
Roll up the dough as tightly as you can. Pinch both ends, and slice the log into ¾ to 1-inch rounds. Place the rolls on the baking sheet, cut side up, and bake for about 18 to 20 minutes, or until the cheese has melted, and light golden brown in color.
Makes about 14 Jalapeno Cheese Bites
