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.

- Roll out each piece of dough. Add cheese, some pasta sauce and pepperoni. Close up dough and turn over. Repeat with remaining dough.
- Combine butter, Italian seasoning and garlic. Brush tops of rolls with the butter mixture.
