Easy Homemade Pizza Rolls

This is a fun homemade spin on a family favorite. I have fond (well, sort of fond) memories of eating pizza rolls during finals in college. Although I haven’t bought pizza rolls in a long time, when I saw them in the grocery store the other day, I had an instant craving. These pizza rolls are healthier and are completely customizable for each family member’s preferences. For meat-eaters, these would be great with pepperoni. They are also good with a few veggies, like mushrooms and peppers. But this basic cheese recipe is delicious all on its own.

Ingredients:

  • 15 ounces tomato sauce
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 0.5 cups Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 Tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 20 each wonton wrappers
  • cooking spray

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning together in a large bowl. Fill up a small bowl with water and place in work area. Put one heaping teaspoon of cheese mixture in the middle of each wonton wrapper. Moisten and fold two opposite sides in, creating a rectangle. Flip over, so the seam is down. Press each short side down to seal, either with a fork or fingers. Place pizza rolls on a greased baking sheet and spray with cooking spray. Bake for 10 minutes, or until brown and crispy.

Freezing Directions:

Before baking, place all rolls on a baking sheet and flash freeze. When frozen, remove from freezer and place in a gallon size freezer bag. To Serve: Thaw. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place pizza rolls on a greased baking sheet and spray with cooking spray. Bake for 10 minutes, or until brown and crispy.

    I wanted to pin this post, but even though it shows a picture of the pizza rolls when I pin it, it comes up on my wall as a picture of two women?

    What is the water for?

      Hi Carol, the instructions have been updated, but the water is used on the edges of the wonton wrapper to seal it together.

    Has anyone else had trouble getting them to be cripy and not soggy? What did I do wrong?

    • regan says:

      Hi Jessica, you might try turning on the broiler for the last minute or two. If you want them really crispy, you can always fry them in a little oil.

      Hi Jessica! I just made these and they turned out great, I put them in my toaster oven and it made them really cripsy, I also turned the heat up to broil the last minute.

    Do you have to thaw them or can you cook them frozen?

    • regan says:

      I haven’t tried cooking them without thawing them first, but I think it would be fine. The cook time will just have to be increased.
