These homemade pizza rolls are made from scratch with a few simple pantry staples. Make a big batch ahead of time and freeze for when your teen's big appetite needs a snack fast!

My kids love pizza rolls. Seriously we should have stock in Totino’s for as much as they would eat bags upon bags of pizza rolls!

I always try to find ways to make a homemade version of an item instead of buying the convenience version. This recipe is proof that you can make pizza rolls from scratch! And, better yet, your kids will love them MORE than the convenience foods at the grocery!

This homemade pizza rolls version takes some time up front but are easy to reheat and serve. They aren’t loaded with the additives and preservatives either.

Double or triple the batch and store in freezer bags for a quick go to snack. You can customize these as simple or as full of ingredients as you like.

Homemade Pizza Rolls Ingredients

  • Homemade Pizza Dough (Pillsbury pizza dough works too if you want to buy that instead)
  • 1/3 cup, Pizza Sauce
  • 1/3 cup, Mozzarella (shredded)
  • 1/3 cup, Diced Pepperoni
  • Pizza Fillings: Mushrooms, Black Olives, Onions
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 Tbsp, Water (for egg wash)

 

Homemade Pizza Rolls Recipe

Homemade Pizza Rolls Directions

  1. Prepare homemade pizza dough.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°.
  3. On a well-floured surface roll your dough into a large rectangle about 1/8” thick. Use a pizza cutter to cut rectangles to desire size.
  4. Top each one with about a ½ tsp of sauce, a sprinkle of cheese, pepperoni, and other toppings.
  5. Fold dough over and crimp closed on the three open sides, using a fork to press them together.
  6. Add rolls to parchment lined or greased baking sheet.
    I use a thin spatula to lift the rolls without breaking.
  7. Brush each roll with the egg wash to give it a crispy and golden exterior.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes until light golden brown.

I promise, these pizza rolls may not look like the convenience version but my teens say they taste even better!

What else can you do with pizza rolls?

Make any type of variety of roll you like! The barbecue chicken version is amazing! My bunch also likes the mexican version with taco meat and cheddar cheese.
