Italian Tomato Rolls

READY IN: 42mins
Recipe by Bonnie G 2

I LOVE trying differant flavor bread and rolls so when I found this in Taste of Home knew I had to try it. Tender chewy rolls with pizza sauce and basil for extra excitement. Prep time does not include rising.

Haven't tried these yet but when I do I think, from the comments of the reviewers, I will add some of King Arthur's Pizza dough favor (item # 3799). That might be just what that little extra these rolls need.
