Quick Dinner- Pepperoni Rolls

When I was growing up, and even now, my mom would take the time to make her own dough.  She would create delicious items, like pizza, pizza frite (fried dough) and a variety of stromboli that is frequently requested by friends and family.  I have followed in the stromboli making path as well, including one…

The restaurant’s main color…
