Stuffed Pizza Rolls

Here’s the first dish to get you ready for the SuperBowl. The girls at OurBestBites like to call these “Inside Out” Pizza. These are the perfect finger food for the big game. You can stuff your favorite toppings inside the roll then dip them in warm marinara sauce. You can make your own pizza dough or buy it. I actually bought mine in the bakery section of my grocery store. They make fresh pizza dough balls and sell it which is sometimes so much easier when I’m short on time. Mine only cost $2. We stuffed ours with pepperoni and mozzarella cheese. I made a quick Caesar salad and Voila, dinner!
Look at the gooey inside.
Stuffed Pizza Rolls

Ingredients

  • 1 roll refrigerated pizza dough
  • marinara/pizza sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 8-12 ounces mozzerella cheese, diced or grated (diced is the least messy to use when stuffing the rolls)
  • Pizza toppings of your choice: ie, ham and pineapple, pepperoni slices, sausage, etc.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and lightly spray a baking dish or large pie plate.
  2. Unroll pizza onto a lightly floured surface and press into a 12" X 8" rectangle. Cut rectangle into 24 squares. Place pepperoni and cheese (or desired toppings) into the center of each square. Gather the sides of each square up and pinch closed to create a ball. Place each ball seam side down in the baking dish.
  3. When all of your dough squares have cheese and toppings on them, carefully lift up each square and wrap the dough around the toppings. Pinch to make sure each ball is sealed shut and then place them seam side down in a lightly sprayed pie pan (or similar sized dish).
  4. In a small ramekin stir melted butter, garlic powder, and Italian seasonings together. Brush tops of rolls with melted butter mixture using a pastry brush. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese evenly over rolls.
  5. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until rolls are golden brown.
  6. Serve with warm pizza sauce for dipping.

  1. i saw these on ourbestbites and wanted to try them. thx for the reminder and re-motivation!

  2. Looks really tempting! Have a great weekend!

  3. These look really good. I am going to have to make some dough!

  4. this is such a smart idea!! I wish our supermarket would sell pizza dough, then it would be so simple to make!

  5. Ooo, you’ve reminded me of a pizza restaurant I visited in London (UK) back in 1987 – they made garlic bread using pizza dough with the garlic butter inside the dough. Garlicky, buttery bliss.

    With homemade pizza dough lurking in the freezer I’ll have to make your recipe and attempt garlic butter ones too!

    (for an added flavour lift, include some lemon juice in garlic butter – just delicious)

  6. Nice…..They’re on my list for Super Bowl Munchies- Thanks!

  9. I made these Friday night. They tasted great. Although, I think I rolled the dough too thin. *NOTE to self for my next time making them. My husband LOVED them though. I found these on tastespotting.

  10. Great idea. Thanks for sharing this. The pizza rolls look delicious.

  11. Hi, my oven stinks… it hardly sticks to any temperature setting. its either tooooo slow or tooo hot. what oven setting did you use for this to be so perfect?

  12. I made these for lunch today with some leftover pizza dough I had in the refrigerator. They were great!! My husband has the day off, so he was home for lunch, and he loved them too!! Very quick and tasty!!

  13. Perfect delight..! It is surely pretty yummy..:)

  14. Those look really tasty. And I’m thinking I could even freeze some of these for snack emergencies. Mmmm, emergency pizza.

  15. I featured your recipe on our blog this week!

  18. Hello your new Australian fan here. My gosh what a blog. Its amazing and I made these today. I pulled them out of the oven and with the 4 pics i took of making process, made into a collage with an app, THEY WERE GONE!!! Hubby and 3 lil ones, 1 who is at school so has missed out. this recipe needs to come with a warning LOL
    thanks for a great recipe :)

  19. Wow, made these last night and they were a hit!! I made the dough in my bread maker since my son has egg and tree nut allergies and the frozen dough had may contain on it. The recipe was so easy that once I rolled out the dough and cut it my 9yo daughter and 6yo son helped me make the rolls. They came out of the oven just perfect. I served with warm marinara sauce and a salad. i will be sending leftovers in their lunch today and saving a few for myself. Thank you for Sharing.

  20. This post is older, but these are still great! I made this and they were a hit for my movie night. Delicious! Thanks for the inspiration!
