Pepperoni Roll-Ups

Here is a fast appetizer recipe that goes over well at my house. Each bite has gooey melted cheese and real pizza flavor. Try serving them with pizza sauce for dipping. —Debra Purcell, Safford, Arizona

Pepperoni Roll-Ups Tips

What goes well with pizza rolls?

If you’d like to amp up the flavor of your pizza rolls, try making a dipping sauce, like ranch, marinara, or a drizzle of spicy honey.

What sides go with pepperoni rolls?

If you’d like a side for pepperoni rolls, bake up some buttery garlic bread or a zesty Italian salad.

Do pepperoni rolls need to be refrigerated?

Yes, you’ll want to store pepperoni roll-ups in the refrigerator, where they will last about a week. To save time, wrap your leftover rolls in foil and pop into the oven to reheat. Unwrap for the last few minutes to crisp up the pastry again.

    My kids loved them so much! I forgot to add the Italian seasoning inside but they asked for it tomorrow morning and lunch! Great recipe!

    Great budget friendly meal, We loved it. Although i had to cook mine longer because of the dough added about 5 Minutes. Next time i will omit the italian seasoning and sprinkle more garlic powder.

    Good and easy concept however I think I may try with bread dough. I did 1/2 with regular string cheese and 1/2 with pepper jack cheese.

    Very quick and tasty dinner! I used mozzarella in place of string cheese. The whole family loved these. Although I did make a large salad to go with it, as I thought they were not filling enough for adults to serve for dinner.

    Nice weeknight meal! I served marina sauce for dipping on the side and used turkey pepperoni to save a few calories.

    re MPry - You will only usse a total of 3/4 teaspoon of Italian seasoning; 1/2 teaspoon should be divided between the 8 triangles for the insides - then after rolling them up, divide the remaining 1/4 teaspoon over the tops of the 8 rolls. Hope that helps!

    I haven't tried this but want to know how you can divide 3/4 of a teaspoon of Italian seasoning into 1/2 teaspoon to put on each triangle. Seems like it should be 4 teaspoons of seasoning. I hope someone at Taste of Home can correct this or answer my question so that I can make this, It looks delicious. I want so much to try it. Thank you SO much MannaMaker that is a BIG help.
