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!

Stuffed Pizza Rolls

These Stuffed Pizza Rolls are an Italian appetizer or dinner recipe that's a hit with adults and kids.


  • 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 mozzarella 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.


  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.
