Pizza Roll Time


During the summer, I tend to experiment with new recipes because I have more time on my hands. Here recently, I have been cooking up some pizza rolls, and they have been a hit. You can use any ingredients you’d like, but the fam seems to be partial to both pepperoni and pesto rolls. I made homemade dough with the Fleischmann’s Pizza Crust Yeast. It was soooooo easy – promise!  One packet of yeast makes about a dozen pizza rolls depending on how thick you slice them. So, without further ado, here are the recipes.


Pesto Pizza Rolls:

1 batch of Fleischmann’s pizza dough

2/3 cup store bought basil pesto

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 cup mozzarella cheese

2/3 cup grated parmesan


Traditional Pepperoni Pizza Rolls:

1 batch of Fleischmann’s pizza dough

2/3 cup Ragu Roasted Garlic Sauce

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 cup grated mozzarella cheese

5 ounce bag pepperoni

1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Dust surface with flour and roll out dough into a rectangle. Next, spread pesto, sprinkle with garlic powder, 1/2 cup mozzarella, and 1/2 cup parmesan cheese. Now, carefully roll the dough into a log and saran wrap it tightly. ****Don’t skip this next step or you will have a gooey mess on your hands. Place the log in the freezer for about 20-30 minutes. Remove from the freezer and cut the log into 12 slices. Place the 1 inch slices into a 9 x 13 greased pyrex dish, top each slice with the remaining 1/3 cup of parmesan cheese, and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. These are especially yummy when you drag them through our ranch dressing.

Follow the same steps for the Traditional Pepperoni Pizza Rolls as used in the Pesto Pizza Rolls. The only difference is that you will use 2/3 cup of sauce, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1 cup of mozzarella, and 5 ounces of pepperoni for your filling before you roll the dough into a log. Freeze and slice. Then use the parmesan cheese to top each roll once it is placed in your greased pyrex dish. Baking instructions are the same, and I strongly recommend dipping these in our ranch dressing too!

These are simply delicious. Add a side salad, and you can call it dinner! Hope you enjoy!autumn signature
