Author note: The basic tomato sauce is slightly tweaked version of Marcella Hazan’s Basic Tomato Sauce. Store bought tomato sauce also works for this recipe.

Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
Place the puff pastry on a cutting board (unwrapped and unfolded). Evenly distribute one layer of tomato sauce on top of the pastry. Add a layer of cheese and any other topping you would like. Lightly dust the top with dried oregano.
Starting with one end, tightly roll-up the dough (like a jelly roll). Once tightly rolled make sure the seam is facing down.
Crack the egg into a small bowl and whisk. Using a pastry brush, brush the top and sides of the pizza roll with the egg wash. Slice into 1/2 inch pieces and place onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
Place into the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve warm.
