Home Made Pizza Rolls

  A family favorite! Homemade pizza rolls for a new spin on pizza night! Home made pizza rolls We love pizza at our house. Sure sometimes it’s just easier to order pizza in.  We only have one place that will deliver to our house, a little pizza joint you may have heard of….. it rhymes with Prominose.  It’s the only food we can get delivered, so we’ve grown very tired of their pizza and it get’s expensive. As much as I love to bake, I don’t always enjoy cooking.…..yet my family continues to ask “What’s for dinner” EVERY. SINGLE. NIGHT! geeze…..didn’t I just feed them LAST night?! So I must come up with something they will like/eat and something I don’t mind making. Homemade pizza is usually a hit with everyone!!  We’ve grilled pizza made garlic chicken pizza, even made these calzones with pizza sauce and toppings.  I’m  always looking for ways to change it up  so it doesn’t always feel like “pizza again“. I haven’t experimented with making our own crust yet……..that’s next on my list. These homemade pizza rolls have now become one of our favorites!  They were even tasty the next day leftover and cold! *you can make this with what ever toppings your family likes.

  2. This is great. I feel ya on changing it up, I’m always in a same old rut it seems. My fam would love this!

  3. Hi TidyMom! I featured these pizza buns on my blog this week! Looking forward to trying them out!

  4. These should freeze well, right??

  5. I’m definitely making some of these tonight. They look soooooo incredibly yummy and easy. We are big pizza people here but you’re right, ordering in gets too expensive and I get tired of the same old homemade pizza. This is a great recipe for us. I featured you today on my favorite things 🙂

  6. I don’t remember where I found you through, but I just found these today (maybe ucreate?!) and I made them this evening. They were delish!! Seriously, so easy and so good. Thanks so much for sharing!!

  7. A friend who likes to cook sent this link to me. Cooking isn’t my favorite thing, but this recipe looks easy and I’ll bet it tastes great. I’m going to try it over the weekend. Nice blog, by the way!

  9. Hey Ragu makes a yummy pizza sauce. It’s a smaller jar too so you’re not wasting sauce. We love to make pizzas on refrigerator biscuits and use fresh cheese and pepperoni. I think I could eat a whole roll of them myself ! HA Love this idea. Pizza rolls are expensive! $9/box of 120! Thanks for sharing!

  20. I made these tonight with sausage…so yummy!! I managed to burn the bottoms though…suggestions?

    • I love using a stone pan. I have a Pampered chef one that is just like a cookie sheet and a mini version. Nothing ever burns and everything cooks evening.

  21. Hey… I know this is a really old post… but can anyone tell me about how many this makes? We’re a big family so I always have to figure out if I need to double recipes! Thanks!!! We’re going to try these tomorrow night I think! 🙂

  22. Made these tonight for my hubby and myself. They’re delicious! Thanks for sharing. Quick question: Do you have problems with the bottoms getting burned? A few in my first batch were overcooked on the bottom. It could be my oven though. I’ll keep experimenting 🙂

    • My oven always burns things on the bottom. I’ve started putting an empty cooking sheet on the rack below the rack my food is on – and that keeps bottoms from burning.

  26. Interesting! Never would have thought of that. We usually use the Croissant rolls and roll some cheese and meat of choice in them and bake them as instructions for the rolls state. We’ve also made our own pizza by using the Jiffy Pizza Crust mix then putting whatever toppings on it that we want and baking it that way. Either way, it’s always pizza and always good! Thanks for sharing!!!

  27. Now I’m hungry… pizza….


  28. Making these for dinner tonight! Thanks for the great idea!

  29. I love your pumpkin butter. I just made it! Thank you! I saw your pizza recipe. I do something similar, but I like to make my own pizza dough and sauce. It is an incredibly easy recipe and very delicious. I got it from Hungry Mouse I do make my own pizza sauce with garlic, tomato, bell pepper, onion ahead of time and then freeze until I am ready to use for pizza roll ups. And we have six children so we make this a lot! Hard to eat Papa Murphy’s or some other franchise pizza when you can make your own!

  30. Made these tonight using a local pizzeria’s frozen pizza dough. Used turkey pepperoni and added diced green, yellow and red peppers. Really, really good. Will be making this recipe often! I think this is a dish that kids would really like! It’s a fun way to eat pizza.

  31. Love making my own pizza dough. I’ve only used canned dough once and I felt it really lacked compared to homemade dough, but this seems like a really great way to use the dough in a simple, quick dinner. Awesome idea!

  47. These are fantastic!!!! This is best recipe I’ve found on Pinterest and it was easy. I am in happy food coma right now. Loved it!

  48. Have you frozen them to eat later? If so, these would be great for my stay-at-home son to feed his son as a snack!

    • I haven’t, but I would think you could totally freeze them!! – If you try it let me know and I’ll update the recipe with the info!

    • I have frozen these before and they are great, but make sure you cut them in their frozen state first or you will end up with a big mess. You can also make these with a quick and easy homemade pizza dough which you can use right away or let rise for an hour or so. Here is the recipe I use all the time with the grandchilden.
      Quick and Easy Pizza Dough
      • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
      • 1 teaspoon white sugar
      • 1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
      • 2 1/2 cups bread flour
      • 2 tablespoons olive oil
      • 1 teaspoon salt
      1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
      2. Stir in flour, salt and oil. Beat until smooth. Let rest for 5 minutes.
      3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat or roll into a round. Transfer crust to a lightly greased pizza pan or baker’s peel dusted with cornmeal. Spread with desired toppings and bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Let baked pizza cool for 5 minutes before serving.

  49. Just popped them in the oven! I found it easier to wrap the rolled dough with wax paper around it (like a candy) and then pop it in the freezer for a few minutes. Once a little more stiff I cut through the wax paper. Adding that little step made it soooo much easier for me!
