Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Brick or Ricotta can be used in this recipe.


  1. Cut each dinner roll into three equal pieces; shape into balls. Cover and let rise for 1 1/2 hours.
  2. Heat oven to 375°F.
  3. Combine the butter, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and Italian seasoning in a large bowl. Toss dough in butter mixture. Arrange dough balls around edges of a greased 10-inch ovenproof or cast-iron skillet. Top with remaining dough balls, leaving space between each roll for rising. (Center will be unfilled.) Cover with plastic wrap. Let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until rolls just begin to brown.
  5. Meanwhile, combine the ricotta, shredded brick and 1 teaspoon garlic powder in a bowl. Spread cheese mixture into the center of the skillet. (Pan will be hot!) Layer with pepperoni and cubed brick.
  6. Combine the pizza sauce, onion powder and remaining garlic powder. Drizzle pizza sauce in three lines.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until rolls are golden brown and filling is bubbly.

Do you have questions when shopping for cheese? Ask the cheesemonger! A cheesemonger specializes in the buying and selling of high-quality cheese, usually available in the specialty section of a grocery store or cheese shop. Knowledgeable and passionate, a cheesemonger is a go-to resource for cheese varieties and pairings, proper cheese storage and handling, its cooking applications and cheese brand information.

Brick cheese is a Wisconsin Original. Traditional aged or German-style brick has a beige smear on its surface; the color darkens, and the flavor intensifies with age. Trimming the rind reduces its aroma and flavor.
