Step by Step Instructions:
It doesn’t take many ingredients to make these pepperoni pizza rolls in no time: Shredded cheese (I used an Italian-style blend, but you play with your favorites…I wanted something that would melt well), Garlic Salt, Italian Seasonings, Grated Parmesan Cheese, Flour (just for rolling out the crust), 2 refrigerated pizza crusts, 1 cup of sliced, chopped pepperoni (I used a turkey pepperoni), and your favorite pasta sauce for dipping.
I started off by first preheating my oven to 425 and then flouring my work surface with a little flour. Then I opened both containers for the pizza crust and laid them out on the counter.
I then rolled out each crust trying to get as even a rectangular shape as I could for both of the crusts.
Now it’s time to put the pizza rolls together. I sprinkled garlic salt and Italian seasonings over each crust.
Then I sprinkled 1 cup of shredded cheese across both crusts, followed by 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese over the crusts, and then evenly distributed 1 cup of chopped pepperoni over both pizzas.
Then I tightly rolled each pizza like you would cinnamon rolls or a tortilla rollup. You want to roll the short end of the pizza to the other short end as you can see above.
Then slice the rolls into about 1-inch slices as seen in this photo.
Then I lined 2 cookie sheets with a Silpat – seriously these are so handy in the kitchen. Then place the slices from one roll on one cookie sheet and then do the same with the other slices. I came out with about 24 rolls I’d say.
Then bake for 10-12 minutes until the rolls are lightly golden. They smelled amazing!
Place them on a wire cooling rack so they stop cooking. I served mine with some reduced sugar tomato basil pasta sauce, and if you warm up the pasta sauce, and then serve the warm rolls, you are going to have a hit on your hands. These were so yummy all warm and dipped in the marinara sauce. Wow!
