Tips for Pizza Rolls

  • Don’t add too much sauce to the inside of the pizza roll. The sauce gets very hot when baked. You can eliminate it from the filling entirely and just use it for dipping.
  • Feeling adventurous? Try different combinations of pizza ingredients. You can do a green pepper and onion with cheddar, or sausage and Parmesan pizza rolls.
  • Using parchment paper ensures that the rolls don’t stick to the pan or burn on the bottom. Note that parchment paper is different from wax paper. It makes for easy clean up too!
