Stuffed Pepperoni Pizza Rolls! Tailgating doesn't get better (OR EASIER) than these cheesy and delicious Pepperoni Pizza Rolls from The Cookie Rookie!Okay, let’s talk about tailgating. Isn’t it the best? Pat and I pretty much fell in love while tailgating at the Mizzou/Oklahoma football game in the Fall of 2010. If you’re an avid Mizzou fan (I see you Karen and Melanie!!), you know what game I’m talking about. We had tickets on the hill (you can see us top right under the video screen…:), and it was my one shot in life to rush the field after beating a #1 ranked team. Pat held me back, saying we might get arrested. We were 28, about the oldest you can be while still getting away with rushing the field after a huge win. The college kid sitting next to us was scared, and I pressured him to go. I’m pretty sure he got arrested. BUT…I still wish we would have done it. Best win ever, best date ever. I still remember my phone dying while texting my brother how it was the most exciting game of my life. Stuffed Pepperoni Pizza Rolls!

Ingredients

  • 1 roll puff pastry dough thawed
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup marinara sauce
  • 1/4 cup mini pepperonis or regular size
  • grated parmesan cheese and chopped basil for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Roll out dough on a piece of foil.
  3. Pinch together any seams of the dough that are coming apart. You want one sheet of dough. (This is a drawback to using puff pastry dough. I tried this recipe with pizza dough and it did not work nearly as well, the rolls grew apart. I recommend using the puff pastry dough and just pinching together any seams that are open)
  4. Spread marinara sauce over the dough, leaving about 1/2 inch on each side.
  5. Cover marinara with cheese and pepperonis. Donâ??t feel like you need to over-do the toppings. Less is more once you roll the dough.
  6. Roll the dough length-wise (the long edge), creating one long roll. Fold the foil around the tube of dough and place in freezer for 20-40 minutes. This is optional but will help the roll keep its shape as you cut it later.
  7. Take the dough out of the freezer and cut into 3/4 inch rolls. I used a bread knife and that worked well.
  8. Place cut rolls onto a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick spray.
  9. Bake for 20 minutes until bubbly and golden brown.
  10. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and basil if desired.
  11. Enjoy!

HOTTIES!! I love it! And how cool that you got a college kid arrested?!? MY heroes! haha :-D My football nights need these pizza rolls! Do I have to share?!?
    Becky Hardin
    I think about that poor baby-faced college kid sometimes LOL!!! He was like "should I, should I???" and I was like "YES GO!!!!!" and watched him run straight into custody HA!!! Thanks girl! Can't wait to see you in Denver!!
Kristyn
These Pepperoni Pizza Rolls look SO good!! I have a feeling they would be a hit at ANY get together!! :D
Yesenia
These look like masterpieces. Just wondering if you think they would freeze well? Would love to have them on hand for after school treats ?
    Becky Hardin
    You know, I haven't tried that, but I think they would work well!! You could just microwave them on defrost for about a minute and then heat up. They're also pretty darn good cold...just like cold pizza!! Hope you and your kids love them!
