What You Need
Pizza Rolls
  • 2 pounds Uncooked Pizza Dough (Two 1-pound dough balls)
  • 12 teaspoons Pizza or Marinara Sauce
  • 48 slices Small Pepperonis
  • 12 ounces Mozzarella Cheese (Cut into 24 equal pieces)
Pizza Roll Marinade
  • 1 stick Unsalted Butter (Melted)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
Pizza Roll Topping
  • 1/2 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 3 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
  1. Move oven rack to the middle of the oven. Then preheat to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray your 12-cup muffin tin(s) with nonstick spray.

  2. Flatten each 1-pound dough ball into a rectangle and divide into 12 equal portions. (If you have two 1-pound dough balls, you'll end up with 24 equal-sized portions of dough). We recommend cutting the dough vertically 6 times and then cutting each strip in half.

  3. Roll dough into balls and then flatten with your fingers into 4-inch rounds.

  4. Scoop 1/2 teaspoon of pizza/marinara sauce into the center of each dough round (without spreading sauce). Top sauce with 1 piece of mozzarella and 2 small pepperonis. Fold each corner of the dough up and pinch together to form a closed ball of dough around the ingredients inside.

  5. Combine salt, melted butter, and garlic powder in a bowl and dip each pizza roll into the bowl, coating it with the marinade. Coat one at a time and place the dough ball seam-side down into the muffin tin.

  6. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon of grated parmesan and a pinch of Italian Seasoning on top of each pizza roll.

  7. Put one muffin tin at a time in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown and fluffy.
