Garlic and Parmesan pair together wonderfully to make these tender and tasty rolls.

2 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 minced garlic cloves
1/2 cup thinly sliced fresh basil
1/2 cup grated fresh Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Unroll refrigerated pizza crust dough on a lightly floured surface; pat into a 15 x 10-inch rectangle. Combine melted butter, salt, and garlic cloves, brush evenly over dough. Sprinkle evenly with thinly sliced fresh basil and grated fresh Parmesan cheese.
Starting at long edge, roll up jelly roll fashion. Cut into 12 slices (1-inch). Place slices, 2-inches apart, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 425-degrees for 12 minutes or until golden.
