In addition to my obsessions with mug cakes, Nutella, and bacon, I love peppperoni and pizza related creations.

I recently joined pinterest where I came across these pepperoni rolls. The original post makes rolls with bread. When I saw the picture on the post, my mind had immediately imagined pizza crust, mozzarella cheese and pepperoni, much like a regular pizza in an easy rolled up form.

These came out pretty tasty. Like eating pizza but without the mess. I think I should have been more liberal with the cheese though as the cheese did not ooze out as much as I would have liked.

I made mine smaller because I wanted them to be more snack sized. These are simple to make and a fun project if you have kids.

Yield: 8-10 rolls

    Simple, clever and – I just know they are – delicious! Adding extra cheese is always good in my opinion;)

      I’m pretty happy with how they came out! I know there’s a lot of similar ideas with breadsticks or garlic knots, but each different variation is always fun!.

    Ooh, pizza rolls that are made of real food, instead of whatever I’m buying from Totino’s.
