Pizza Rolls

  • Yield: 16 servings

"My children liked store-bought pizza rolls, but there were only a few in the box. I decided to find a way to make them to get more for my money. Even though they take a little bit of time, they are delicious and freeze very well."


1pound bulk mild Italian sausage
4cups shredded pizza cheese blend or mozzarella
6ounces sliced pepperoni, chopped
1medium green bell pepper, finely chopped
1medium red bell pepper, finely chopped
1medium onion, finely chopped
2 (14-ounce) jars pizza sauce
32 egg roll wrappers
Vegetable oil for frying


  1. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook until browned, stirring frequently and breaking up large pieces. Drain on paper towels.
  2. Combine the sausage, cheese, pepperoni, bell peppers, onion, and pizza sauce in a large bowl; mix well. Arrange the egg roll wrappers on a work surface.
  3. Spoon 1/4 cup of the mixture in the center of each egg roll wrapper. Fold the bottom edge toward the center over the filling. Moisten the top edge with a small amount of water and fold over, sealing tightly.
  4. Heat 1 inch of oil to 375F in an electric skillet. Fry the rolls in batches until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.
