4 Ingredient Recipe

Crust: Pizza dough is always available in fresh or frozen balls at the supermarket, otherwise you can use crescent rolls or even biscuits that can be combined together and rolled out.

Meat: Pepperoni is the star of this show, but slices of ham, finely ground cooked sausage, or even leftover meat can be chopped and added to this recipe.

Sauce: Use any jar of marinara sauce with the flavor profile you like best. Add some extra Italian seasoning, garlic powder, or a dash of red pepper flakes for an extra kick!

Cheese: Choose your cheese! This pizza roll-up needs lots of melty cheese to hold the roll together to get those perfect pinwheels! Other cheeses to add are a Mexican blend, cheddar, Monterey jack, or a combination of whatever is in the fridge!

Toppings: Keep the pieces small so the roll stays intact. We like sliced olives, mushrooms, onions, jalapenos, green chiles, bacon bits, and even basil leaves.

How to Make Pizza Roll Ups

  1. Roll out dough and cover with sauce (as per the recipe below).
  2. Add cheese, pepperoni, and other optional toppings.
  3. Roll pizza up from the longest edge and bake, seam side down until golden brown.
  4. Let rest before slicing and serving.

Tips For Success

If the dough is too sticky to handle, use a little flour to dust your hands with. Brush the top of the pizza roll with an egg wash and sprinkle chopped parsley on top for a nice presentation. Slice pieces about 3” each and wrap in plastic and keep in the fridge for grab-and-go snacks!
