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.

tips on how to make pizza rolls-

  • 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 round like you would dinner rolls or long oval shaped.
  • The butter topping is optional; you can just use an egg wash as a substitute.

can I freeze pizza rolls?

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 Ziploc 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.

how long are pizza rolls good for?

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

    I made these today to send along with my kids to a weekend church camp. They were amazing. I’m going to mix up a triple batch for my freezer now. I made them in muffin tins and that worked great. Have you ever tried freezing them before baking?

      This is the sweetest comment, Jean! We are heavily involved in our church and your comment is very special. Feeling very humbled our recipe was used. 🙂 Thanks for visiting our online home.
      I’ve never tried freezing them before baking, not sure how to the dough will perform once it’s frozen. Sorry- that wasn’t very helpful.

    You have the ingredient yeast written twice, does that mean we need 2 TBSP of it? Or is that a typo?

      Yes, that was an error, it is fixed now. Thank you!:)

    Can the dough be made the night before? I made a batch this afternoon and they were delicious. I would love to make the night before and use the dough for cinnamon rolls

      Hi Amy,
      Unfortunately, I have never made it the night before so I am not 100% sure. I think that should work though. 🙂 If you do give them a try overnight, I’d love to hear your input. <3
