Homemade Pizza Rolls Recipe~ Great Snack Or Delicious Lunch!

Sharing is caring!

Growing up, pizza was my absolute favorite food, although spaghetti was a close second.  Strangely enough, after all these years, I still haven’t had enough!  I now make pizza almost weekly for my family.  However, instead of the frozen kind that I grew up on, I prefer a variety of homemade styles.  Today, I want to share our Homemade Pizza Rolls Recipe with you.  This works great for an after-school snack but I also make for lunch alongside a salad or fruit.

It All Starts With The Crust

I start this recipe with a base of my Easy Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe. Once my crust has doubled in size, I plop it onto my counter in a pile of flour.

Then I simply roll it out.  Honestly, the thinner the better.  I actually suggest you divide the dough in half and use one half for each pan to avoid the crust from taking away from all the flavors.

Time For The Homemade Pizza Rolls Magic

After the crust is rolled, give an even coating of your favorite pizza sauce.

Next, take a variety of sliced and shredded cheeses (mozzarella, sharp cheddar, and Parmesan are my go to) and layer over sauce.  Basically, there’s no limit.  It’s cheese and you can never have enough!

Then it’s time to layer on your toppings.  This time, we went with extra large pepperoni slices and sausages for the kids.  My husband loves when I add onions, peppers, and mushrooms.  Be sure to sprinkle over the top with garlic salt and seasoning salt for added flavor.

Now for the hard(er) part.  Carefully work the dough and roll into a long tube shape.  Make as tight of a roll as possible.

Once completely rolled, pinch edges together to help it stay in place.  Then, take a serrated knife and cut into about 1 1/2″ slices.

Divide wedges into two greased 9×13 pans.  And then into the oven they go.

I used to make something like this YEARS ago only I would not slice it. Baked as a log then when almost done sprinkle cheese on the top. But I really like the ideal of cutting these in pieces it would bake a lot faster. We used frozen bread dough to make ours.
