Pizza Rolls are soft and buttery crescent rolls filled with gooey melted cheese and pepperoni slices. Add some pizza dipping sauce on the side and you have a tasty appetizer kids (and adults) love!
My picky eaters love pizza. I know when I make it for dinner, there will be no complaints and no leftovers. We would eat it every night if we could!
I thought I’d try a something different and made these yummy Pizza Rolls with some refrigerated crescent roll dough. This recipe also was well-received and gobbled up quickly.
Basically all you do is wrap some pepperoni slices and a cheese stick in each crescent roll triangle. Bake them in the oven and they come out soft with gooey melted cheese inside. Add some pizza sauce for dipping and you have the perfect appetizer for kids.
Fill them with other toppings if you like. Maybe some cooked bacon, ham or pineapple? Whatever you decide, I’m sure they will turn out delicious! Change things up to keep it interesting or to suit your tastes.
Everyone loves pizza so they are a surefire hit.
These Pizza Rolls are yummy served for dinner with a Caesar salad. It’s for those nights you want to put a spin on pizza. The sky is the limit for what you can do with this easy recipe.
How to Make Pizza Rolls
Start by separating the crescent roll dough into 8 triangles. Carefully rip them apart along the perforations.
Place three pepperoni slices on the shortest side of each triangle and top with a mozzarella stick.
Roll them up starting at the side with the pepperoni and cheese. Place the Pizza Rolls on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake for 12 to 14 minutes until they are golden brown.
Enjoy them while they’re hot! Maybe make two batches since they will be eaten up quickly. My daughter and her friend barely saved one for me. I’m happy that they enjoyed them so much.
