Apparently I have trouble creating appetizers without meat and cheese. Anyone else?

From these BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger Cupcakes (or the nachos for that matter) to this Cranberry Bacon Jam Crostini and these Pepperoni Pizza Cupcakes, it’s become clear that I have a problem. You’re not going to tell though, will you?

So I was a little nervous about making these pizza roll ups since my last painful disaster with French toast roll ups. I knew how badly this could go.

But instead, they turned out really well! Here are a few pointers I picked up in my second roll up experience:

  • If you have a side of bread that’s a little ragged, start rolling from that side — the loose edges will get tucked in when you roll.
  • Don’t overstuff!
  • Place most of your filling at the end where you will start rolling — it will be slowly pushed to the other side as you roll anyways.
  • If you need to, use a toothpick to secure them while they bake — no shame in that! (I only needed to toothpick a couple)
  • Squeeze your roll together as you’re rolling, and give it a good squeeze once you’re done — it really helps the rolls to stay together!

Servings 6 roll ups
Calories 157cal

Ingredients

  • 6 slices bread crusts removed
  • 24-36 thin slices of pepperoni
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Canola oil spray or 2-3 tablespoons butter melted

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • With a rolling pin, flatten bread slices completely.
  • Cover with pepperoni slices (4-6 per slice of bread) and sprinkle with about 1-2 tablespoons cheese (keeping fillings closer to the side you will start rolling at).
  • Roll the bread up as tightly as possible (you might have to keep pushing the filling in as you go) and set aside (you can toothpick them if necessary!).
  • Line a baking sheet with tin foil. Spray the foil with canola oil spray, place roll ups on and spray lightly with spray. Alternatively, you can roll the roll ups in melted butter before placing on the baking sheet (to get roll ups as golden as the picture, you’ll have to use the butter method. Both taste just as good as the other!).
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Serve with warmed pizza sauce.

    Hi Ashley! Perfect finger food! I actually prefer eating actually prefer a variety of apps over a regular meal…is that weird? I guess I just like playing with my food! 🙂

      That is such a fun way to do a “meal”! We love doing that too but don’t do it often as it takes a little time to prepare all of your different bites. We do it often around holidays though!

      Thanks Gayle! Is it bad that they were a bigger hit with my husband and myself than the kids? They’d rather have vegetables any day! Lol. Oh well — give me all the pizza!
