pizza rolls-

This recipe for pizza rolls is going to become a family favorite. The dough is so quick to make, easy to work with and is soo soft. The pizza rolls are loaded with cheese, pizza sauce and pepperoni pieces.


  • You want to use good quality flour for the dough, works the best. I use either Sapphire flour or Canadian flour when making this recipe.
  • If you will be using regular all-purpose flour, start out with about 3 2/3 cups flour and just continue adding flour as needed. The dough shouldn’t stick to your hands.
  • You can either shape them around like you would dinner rolls or long oval-shaped.
  • The butter topping is optional; you can just use an egg wash as a substitute.


This is a freezer-friendly recipe. Those of you that have an extra freezer, double or triple the recipe. Once rolls are completely cooked, add to a freezer bag and freeze. Thaw once ready to be enjoyed and bake a few minutes to add freshness. Tastes as if you just baked them.

We always have frozen pepperoni rolls to thaw for busy evenings.


These pepperoni rolls can be stored covered in the refrigerator up to 3 days. To enjoy, just reheat the rolls in a toaster oven until warm.
