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.

    I know you posted this forever ago but I just found it and you are going to save the night. I have plans to cook my heart out but that didn’t mean dinner so the kiddos will love this and I love it because it’s easy. Thanks!

    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!

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

    These should freeze well, right??

  5. Jennifer posted on December 7, 2010 at 3:42 pm (#)

    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. Kara posted on December 9, 2010 at 6:13 pm (#)

    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!!

    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!

    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!

    I make pepperoni bread like that but never though to cut it before I baked it. Love that idea. :)

    SOLD! I’m making these for my husband ASAP! I might as well thank you now because I know it will be love at first bite :) ps. LOVE your blog, so many great ideas, links & recipes – thank you for sharing! xo

    i made these last night with sausage instead of pepperoni. they were so awesome! thanks for the recipe. :)

  15. Tink74 posted on August 11, 2011 at 6:03 pm (#)

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

    • colleen replied on February 5th, 2012 at 12:14 pm

      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.

  16. Ginnie posted on August 29, 2011 at 4:17 pm (#)

    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! :)

    • Missy replied on August 29th, 2011 at 9:01 pm

      I think it depends on how big you slice them. I got 9 out of one roll and 7 out of the other. Enjoy!

  17. Missy posted on August 29, 2011 at 8:58 pm (#)

    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 :)

    • Anne replied on October 9th, 2011 at 2:42 pm

      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.

  18. Monette posted on September 7, 2011 at 9:27 pm (#)

    Made this tonight with my homemade pizza crust and it was a big hit!

  19. Amanda posted on October 6, 2011 at 8:06 am (#)

    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!!!

    Now I’m hungry… pizza….


  21. Nicole posted on October 13, 2011 at 7:38 am (#)

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

  22. Chalk Inscriptions posted on October 23, 2011 at 12:55 pm (#)

    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!

  23. Julie posted on November 6, 2011 at 9:25 pm (#)

    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.

  24. Torie posted on November 21, 2011 at 10:24 pm (#)

    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!

    My kids love when we make these!!!

  26. Ashley posted on February 4, 2012 at 10:31 am (#)

    These look so delicious, I need to try them!

  27. Kelly posted on February 9, 2012 at 9:50 pm (#)

    Going to make these for our homeschool Valentine’s Day party!

  28. Diana Garza posted on February 15, 2012 at 7:46 pm (#)

    I have made these twice and they have been a hit each time! Yesterday, at a Valentine’s party they were ravished – everyone loved them and kept asking how I made them! Thanks for sharing!

  29. Ashley posted on July 5, 2012 at 7:15 pm (#)

    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!

  30. Diane Weber posted on July 22, 2012 at 5:36 pm (#)

    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!

    • TidyMom replied on July 22nd, 2012 at 5:47 pm

      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!

    • Helen replied on July 23rd, 2012 at 6:32 am

      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.

    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!
