Stuffed Pizza Rolls

Pizza dough stuffed with your favorite ingredients and dipped in marinara sauce. 24 Pizza Rolls

Pizza is definitely one of my favorite meals and is always a meal that pleases everyone at the dinner table. These Stuffed Pizza Rolls taste just like traditional pizza but all of the toppings are stuffed inside pizza dough and baked.

These can made as an appetizer, lunch, or even dinner for your family in less than 30 minutes. These rolls are a great way to get your kids involved in the kitchen. My kids love to help me make these pizza rolls because they can customize each roll with the ingredients they enjoy and they feel like they have “helped” with dinner. Kids love finger foods, and dunking them in pizza sauce makes dinner that much more fun.

Here’s your lineup: Pizza dough, diced mozzarella, and pepperonis. Feel free to use whatever toppings you want here – chicken, bacon, ham, pineapple, or sausage to name a few. I love olives so I always throw some in his pizza rolls.

  • Roll out and cut your dough into 24 squares and place your toppings in the center of each square.
  • Bundle all that cheesy deliciousness up in the ball of dough, brush with some melted butter, garlic, and seasonings, and then bake until golden brown. Look at that gooey inside.

Plan ahead: I never know when I am going to need a quick dinner. These pizza rolls freeze beautifully. Just freeze the uncooked balls individually and when you need them, bake the frozen balls until golden brown (may take a couple more minutes).
