Easy Pepperoni Rolls
Pepperoni rolls are very similar to your classic pizza rolls, with breading and seasoning on the outside and common pizza toppings like cheese and pepperoni on the inside.
- 13.8 oz can pizza dough
- 6 oz pepperoni slices (larger 2 ½ inch slices can be cut in half)
- 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- 3 tbsp butter melted
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 4 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
- 1 tsp dried parsley
- Pasta or marinara sauce for dipping
Preheat the oven to 375º. Spray a pie pan or round baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
Roll out the pizza dough into a rectangle approximately ¼ inch thick. (There may be no need to do this. The dough comes out of the can quite thin.) Using a pizza cutter or knife, cut the dough (width-wise) into 11 or 12 equal strips.
Place a single layer of pepperoni on each strip of dough and top with 2 tablespoons of mozzarella cheese.
Roll each strip of dough, cinnamon roll style, and place into the prepared pie pan, seam side down (the filling is not facing up). The rolls can be placed right next to each other.
Brush the pizza rolls with the melted butter. Sprinkle with the basil, garlic powder, and the parmesan cheese. Sprinkle the parsley on top.
Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with pasta sauce or marinara for dipping.
