These Stuffed Pizza Rolls taste just like your favorite pizza, combined into a roll and drizzled with a zesty, buttery glaze!
It’s a well-known fact in my family that the hubster is a sports addict.
Football, baseball, basketball, and hockey, my husband loves it all! He records various sporting events and talk shows on TV, listens to sports radio, reads ESPN magazine, checks the game scores online, and watches whatever he can to get his sport fix.
If you have a question about sports, chances are the hubster knows it. His knowledge of anything related to the subject continues to amaze me. I always tease him that he missed his calling in life to go into sports broadcasting.
Myself, on the other hand, isn’t really into sports. I don’t really watch any type of sporting event on TV (unless it’s college basketball during the NCAA or the occasional Chicago Bulls game). But other than that, it’s a snooze fest for me. While I do enjoy going to sporting events, the rest of it isn’t as appealing as it is to my sports-loving husband.
However, I love to create tasty game day snacks. I’ll take any excuse that I can to whip up something to munch on! And if I have something delicious to snack on, I can last just a little bit in front of the TV watching football. It’s all about the snacks, guys!
So in honor of sports fans everywhere (and those who just love a good snack), I created these homemade Stuffed Pizza Rolls!
Ingredients for Stuffed Pizza Rolls
These Stuffed Pizza Rolls taste just like your favorite pizza, combined into a roll and drizzled with zesty, buttery glaze. And if you’re anything like me and can’t get enough of pizza, you’re going to love these bites!
- Refrigerated biscuits
- Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese
- Unsalted butter
- Italian seasoning and garlic powder
- Pizza sauce
How to Make Pizza Rolls
This zesty snack took just minutes to prepare! Here are the basic steps to making stuffed pizza rolls in the oven:
- You simply flatten refrigerated biscuits, sprinkle in some mozzarella cheese and pepperoni, and then shape the dough into balls.
- You then brush on a delicious seasoning of butter, garlic, and Italian seasoning, and pop these cuties into the oven.
- Serve with warmed pizza sauce, and you have yourself a game day winner!
These Stuffed Pizza Rolls are the perfect game snack! Hubster-approved, simple to make, and full of pizza flavor, you’ll be baking these bites all the time.
Can I Prepare These in Advance?
These homemade pizza rolls are best enjoyed right away, however leftovers will keep up to four days in the fridge. You can reheat leftover rolls in the microwave.
Recipe Variations to Try
- Make it vegetarian: Omit the pepperoni and make cheese-stuffed pizza rolls instead!
- Add veggies: You can also add sautéed veggies to the middle of the rolls. You MUST sauté the veggies first to remove some of their moisture, otherwise they’ll make the rolls soggy.
- Add cheese: The shredded mozzarella and Parm pair well with so many types of cheese. Feel free to customize these rolls as you see fit!
Tips for Making the Best Pizza Rolls
- I used refrigerated biscuit dough to make this recipe, but I imagine store-bought pizza dough would also work.
- Be sure to pinch the bottom of the rolls shut so none of the cheese filling falls out.
- I highly recommend serving these rolls with warm pizza or marinara sauce.

An Easy Video Tutorial for Stuffed Pizza Rolls:
Stuffed Pizza Rolls
- 1 (16.3 ounce) can refrigerated biscuits
- 3 ounces pepperoni , roughly chopped (about ¼ cup)
- ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 tablespoon unsalted butter , melted
- ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Pizza sauce for dipping , if desired
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly spray a casserole dish or 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
- Flatten each biscuit with the palm of your hand (or rolling pin). Sprinkle mozzarella cheese and pepperoni onto the center of each biscuit.
- Working one at a time, pinch the sides of the roll upwards to seal the dough, and then roll into a ball. Place into prepared dish. Repeat with each remaining biscuit.
- Combine the melted butter, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder in a small bowl. Lightly brush the butter mixture on top of each roll. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the tops.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the rolls brown slightly on top and the dough is firm. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Serve with pizza sauce, if desired.
This is a perfect game day snack!! All my favorite flavors rolled up in one! Fun recipe!!
Um, yum. Like really a lot. Such a great idea! And it looks crazy complicated to make even though it’s not. Talk about an amazing treat, even if you don’t happen to be watching ESPN!
These pizza rolls were so easy to make and even better to eat! I was able to sit through a little bit of football with these babies last weekend! 🙂
Arpita@ The Gastronomic Bong says
Wow!! This looks so so amazing. I just love pizza in any form and could prolly eat the whole thing.. 🙂
I could eat pizza 24/7 and be one happy girl, so these bites definitely fit the bill! Thanks, Arpita!
These look perfect for that not so perfect sports game. My husbands a gym teacher and coach so I can relate to all this sports stuff. For me, a good snooze and pizza roll looks perfect, especially with the Parm on top. And I’m all about the Pilsbury recipes these days, I really like those books they sell at the groceries stores!! I have the same wood cutting board as you, love it =)
I love Pilsbury recipes, too! They make great easy weeknight meals or snacks. And these pizza rolls are so perfect for when you need to zone out and want something tasty to snack on! Thanks, Laura!
Liz @ Floating Kitchen says
These look like the perfect food to enjoy while I pretend to watch sports on TV. Love it, girl!
Ha ha I totally pretend to watch sports, too…doesn’t last very long though! 🙂 Thanks, Liz!
Jen @ Baked by an Introvert says

I love anything “pizza” and these are just perfect for me! Great for game day and so easy to make! Pinned of course!

Ahh, I’ve been seeing these stuffed pizza rolls everywhere and they look delicious! I’m thinking I need to get these healthified! HA! Looking yummy Gayle!
Thanks, Karen! I can’t get enough of these pizza rolls, they’re so good! If you find a way to healthify these, let me know! 🙂
Sarah @ The Gold Lining Girl says
How funny… my S.O. is the same way. He listens to EVERY radio sports talk show, all day long, records all the tv shows, etc. He’s a junkie too. Our mornings getting ready for work right now are with anything Buffalo Bills in the background. Lol. I am *obsessed* with football. College and NFL. That’s about it for me.
I am also OBSESSED with these pizza rolls! GAH! They’re beautiful, first of all, but I knooooow they are going to taste ridiculous. When I was a kid, a local place sold pepperoni balls and we all adored them, they were coveted by all. If possible, these look even better than those! Trying them for sure.
Then you definitely know what I mean, Sarah! 🙂 Thanks so much for the pizza roll love! These are so easy to make, and perfect for you on football days!
Ceara @ Ceara's Kitchen says
Um can I come over and have one of these right now!? 😀 These truly look mouth watering-ly good, Gayle! These are the perfect “game” day food for sure and I love how easy these are to make 😀 I am like you – I am not really into sports but I’ll take the snacks that come along with it any day!
Thanks so much, Ceara! I would deliver if I could! 🙂 And tasty snacks like these help me getting through any type of sporting event!
Kelly - Life Made Sweeter says
Mmm, these stuffed pizza rolls look amazing! They’re perfect for game day – I would totally want to hang out at the food table with a few of these instead of by the TV. I love how easy they are to whip up too 🙂 Pinning!
Thanks so much for the kind words and pin, Kelly! These pizza rolls are definitely better than anything on TV! Especially when dipped in pizza sauce! 🙂
Stacey @ Bake.Eat.Repeat. says
Those look awesome! I love pizza anything, stuffing it into bread sounds like a great idea!
Thanks, Stacey! Pizza anything is my favorite, too!
Natalie @ Tastes Lovely says
I’m just like you, I’m not in to sports AT ALL! Luckily for me, neither is my husband. Which is kind of funny, because his family is OBSESSED. All they do is live and breath football. It’s nuts. They’re always inviting us over for the game, but we really just go for the company and the food. These stuffed pizza rolls sound so good! I’m going to have to bring them next time, they’ll be a huge hit!
That’s too funny that your husband doesn’t like sports either! And I totally go to sporting get-togethera for the food and company, too. That’s the best part! 🙂 I hope you like these if you try them, Natalie!

Because these are rolls and not big slices, that means we can eat double the amount and it will be ok right?! 😛 love these stuffed pizza rolls!!! gimme gimme!!!
I like your thinking, Alice! These rolls definitely mean that you can have more than one! Thanks for the kind words!

Nicole @ Waterloo, with Love says
Gayle! You are such SO creative! 🙂 These look so good! Store bought pizza pockets aint’ got nothing on these!
I totally get you on the sports thing! Trying to pretend like I understood the Super Bowl last year probably deserved a grammy haha
Thanks, Nicole! These pizza rolls definitely rival hot pockets! And I don’t understand football at all, let alone watch the superbowl! 🙂
Nicole @ Waterloo, with Love says
^ Oscar* :p
Stuffed pizza rolls definitely sound like a perfect game day snack! I never liked watching sports but have gotten a *little* into it after I met my husband. But I still prefer the food!! 🙂
Thanks, Ashley! I have gotten a little more into basketball after meeting my husband, but he still can’t convince me to watch an entire game of football! 🙂
