Homemade Pizza Rolls

As the school year begins anew, it’s always nice to stock the freezer with some easy grab-‘n-go options for school lunches and those hectic evenings filled with extracurricular activities. One of my family’s favorites is homemade pizza rolls. They don’t seem to last long, so I always make a double or triple batch.


  • 1 (16 oz) homemade or frozen pizza dough, thawed
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Assorted toppings: pepperoni, sausage, Canadian bacon, onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, olives, pineapples  . . .
  • 8 ounces mozzarella, grated
  • marinara sauce (optional), for dipping when serving


Preheat oven to 400°

Roll dough into a 14-inch circle and brush with olive oil.

Cut circle into eight wedges. Add cheese and desired toppings, then roll-up each wedge from outside to center.

Place rolls on parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool completely before freezing.

Reheat in the oven or microwave. I like to serve these with marinara sauce for dipping, but that is optional.
