Pepperoni Pizza Rolls

In addition to my obsessions with mug cakes, Nutella, and bacon, I love pepperoni 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.
