Picture of Pizza Rolls
Good for any occasion (including the SuperBowl), pizza rolls are just a classic.  And while they are easy to buy, they are pretty easy to make and personalize!

Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies
  • Pizza Dough - 13.8 oz store bought pre made
  • Pizza Sauce - I used about 6 oz of a 14 oz jar
  • Mozzarella Cheese - I used about 4 oz of a 16 oz bag
  • Pepperoni or filling of choice - I had an 8 oz bag and probably didn't use half

Other Supplies:
Recipe will make 20 Pizza Rolls

* These are the ingredients and amounts I used.  I hope everyone will make it with whatever ingredients they like best whether it be a certain store-bought brand or fresh homemade ingredients :)

Step 2: Prepare

Picture of Prepare
To start off, your pepperonis are too big to fit into your Pizza Rolls.  You can buy them in smaller pieces already (I'm sure) or cut them up.  I wanted nice small pieces so I cut them into 4 strips and then cut those strips three more times to get 16 little pieces from one pepperoni.

To get the dough ready, spread it out.  If it is store bought, it should fairly easily spread into a nice rectangle.  You are going to cut this into 5 strips and cut each strip into 4 pieces, making 20 rolls.  After you cut them, get them ready to be made into rolls by carefully stretching the squares so they are more of a rectangle.  

Sometimes your dough might be too thin.  I found this wasn't too hard to fix.  Take your square that needs fixing and fold it like you would a piece of paper and press it together. (folding it twice gets it back into a nice square)  As long as it doesn't have any holes now, you can lightly stretch it into a rectangle.

Lay these out.  I just did a couple at a time.

can you freeze them before you cook then to make them last longer

I believe everything on its own can be frozen, so I don't see why not :) But I'm not sure on the cooking time then.

Little mini calzone! Top work, they look delicious
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  tudgeanator1 year ago
Very delicious :)
Mmmm. I've got to try this with homemade pizza dough (got any recipes? I haven't been happy with most of the ones I've found....).

I wonder how well these would freeze.

as they cook poke holes in them to prevent them from bursting

I pretty much just made the exact same thing a few weeks ago, except I used crescent rolls and stuffed them way too much, so there was definitely spillage, but they were SO good. I will try the real pizza dough next time though with your cutting method!
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  StoryAddict2 years ago
Mmm! Sounds good! I debated using something other than pizza dough, but thought I should go with this route and try to reduce the chances of failure on my part!
It was a bit extra salty since it was the "buttery flavor" kind, but even room temperature, they were still really good. I highly recommend it for party platters.
Thank you. I'll try these. Soon!

I think I will try fillo dough or puff pastry instead, because pizza dough sits like cement in my gut :-(
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  realife112 years ago
Sounds like a good idea :) Let me know how they turn out!
realife112 years ago
Great, I was just going to go tomorrow and buy some, but instead I think I will try these. Good job!
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  realife112 years ago

Bursting is the result of too much pressure inside them. Either wet down the edge with egg wash (egg mixed up with a tablespoon of water) or you can crimp them with the tines of a fork for a more... ravoli look.

Also be sure to squeeze out as much air as you can, as it can expand and blow out seams.

Good job!

Thanks for the tips and thanks for looking!

You could probably make these bigger for pizza pockets, I'd think you'd just need to increase baking time.
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  Zanaji2 years ago
For sure! Those would be tasty too :)
