What you need to make stuffed pizza rolls
You only need a few ingredients to make these pizza rolls: refrigerated pizza crust, shredded mozzarella cheese, toppings (we used mini pepperoni slices), and marinara sauce for dipping.
You can use any type of fillings you’d like. Ham and pineapple, sausage, chopped veggies, or just leave them with plain cheese. If you don’t have any shredded mozzarella, you could use cubed cheese, too.
We also love to top these pizza rolls with brushed olive oil or butter and a mixture of Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and grated Parmesan cheese.
If you have a favorite homemade pizza crust recipe, you could use that, too (we just used pre-made crust to save us some time).
How to make stuffed pizza rolls
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Unroll your pizza dough onto a lightly floured surface. Pat or roll the dough so it’s about 12 x 24 inches. Cut it into 24 squares with a pizza cutter.
Place cheese and desired toppings on each square. (Do not add marinara sauce, it’s for dipping after they are cooked.) After adding toppings to each dough square, carefully lift up each square and wrap the dough around the toppings. Pinch to make sure each ball is sealed shut and then place them seam side down on a lightly sprayed pie pan or square pan.
Brush the tops of the dough balls with olive oil.
In a small bowl, mix together garlic powder, Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle the mixture on top of the brushed rolls.
Cook for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown on top. Keep an eye on them so they don’t overcook. Serve warm with warmed marinara sauce on the side for dipping.
Make ahead of time
If you know you have a busy night ahead of you, you could prepare the stuffed rolls (all the way to the brushed with oil and seasonings) and refrigerate them, covered, until you’re ready to cook them.
