Pizza rolls

I've talked before about hubby's love of frozen processed foods. One of his favorite things to do is to walk through the frozen food aisle in the grocery store and drool over the frozen the hopes that I'll say, "Oh, I can make those!" It worked for taquitos. :)

On Super Bowl Sunday, hubby really wanted pizza rolls, so I decided to try them.
There weren't as many recipes as I thought there'd be, and most of them just used regular pizza dough and seemed like mini calzones, or used wonton wrappers which didn't seem like the right consistency. But then I found this article, which described the process of perfecting the pizza roll.

I made the dough as described, using my pasta roller to get the dough nice and thin. For the filling, I used our normal homemade pizza sauce, mixed with pepperoni and mozzarella cheese. I plopped a bit of filling every couple inches on the pieces of dough, used a pizza cutter to separate them, and then pinched them together.

We tried them both ways, fried in oil and baked in the oven. Do I even need to say which tasted better?

I'm not a big fan of fried foods, but even I couldn't stop eating these. These took forever and were kind of a pain to make, especially for how few the recipe made. But they were delicious, and I know hubby would be thrilled if I ever made them again!


  1. Hmm, posts on pizza rolls from both you and Tracey today. Might be a sign that I need to make some, too. =)
