How to make easy pepperoni and cheese pizza roll-ups with pizza sauce, 3 kinds of cheese – mozzarella, cheddar, and Parmesan, all baked on rolled-up pizza dough. They’re the perfect bite! It can be a meal for kiddos or served as an appetizer or snack.
These pepperoni and cheese pizza roll-ups are easy to make for an appetizer! They’re fun to make with kiddos too!
To gauge how big they are: they’re not single bites, more like 3 bites!
These are perfect for Superbowl parties, New Year’s appetizers, summer snacks with the kids (that might be more of a meal for them!), or to bake and take into work the next day for lunch.
Ingredients for Pepperoni & Cheese Pizza Roll-Ups
- Pillsbury Refrigerated Canned Pizza Crust, or similar
- Prego Pizza Sauce, or similar
- Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- Grated Parmesan Cheese
- Pam Cooking Spray or Parchment Paper
You can leave them as-is with cheese and pepperoni, or you can add more pizza toppings:
- Replace the pizza sauce with BBQ sauce or alfredo sauce
- Green Peppers
- Top with Jalapenos
- Top with Extra Cheese
- Banana Peppers
- Italian Sausage
- Shredded Chicken
I experimented and also made BBQ chicken roll-ups as well with shredded chicken, BBQ sauce, red onions, and mozzarella cheese. Check them out!
Keep in mind, with each addition, you want to be minimal and cut the vegetables small. Otherwise, you will have difficulties rolling the pizza dough and have filling fall out.
I don’t recommend adding more sauce to the roll-ups. When I did, they were falling apart and not keeping their circular shape. If you are a sauce lover, I recommend using extra pizza sauce for dipping!
How to Make Pepperoni & Cheese Pizza Roll-Ups
This is the pizza dough I baked with. It comes with 1 pizza dough per can.
Once you have your ingredients, roll them up, and cut them into equal pieces. I was able to cut 18 even pieces that were about 2″ thick out of the Pillsbury pizza dough I had.
Carefully place them on a greased baking sheet or one lined with parchment paper. It can be tricky if they’re overfilled.
Top a few or all of the roll-ups with pepperoni and pop it in the oven for 15-16 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
