Ingredients in a Pepperoni Roll

The main list of ingredients is so easy and simple! And like I said, you can add or take away whatever you need to make this your own! See the recipe card below for a list of exact ingredient measurements.

  • Rhodes white bread: I like to keep things simple and just buy the dough already pre-made!
  • Pepperoni: Switch this up for any kinds of meat that you like! Or, go ahead and add even more in addition to the pepperoni.
  • Pizza sauce: You can get pizza sauce from the store or you can use some Homemade Pizza Sauce
  • Mozerella cheese: This classic cheese is perfect for this recipe! Use as much or as little as you would like!
  • Parmesan cheese: You can use shredded parmesan cheese or the kind from the can in your fridge!
  • Garlic salt: By garnishing the tip with this,you get the best subtle flavor added to the pepperoni roll!
  • Butter: You will need to melt you butter to use to brush on top of the pepperoni roll. This give it that crisp, golden brown color and texture.

How to Make a Pepperoni Roll

This dinner is perfect for those busy nights when you are running all over the place! It only takes 20 minutes and is so delicious!

  1. Prepare the pizza: Let bread thaw out from the freezer for a few hours. Roll the dough out to about an 11×11 square. Spread your sauce with a large spoon and then add on your mozzarella cheese. Lay the pepperoni in rows covering the top. Roll the dough up.
  2. Brush on butter, add garnish and bake: Melt the butter and brush it on top of the rolled dough. Sprinkle it with parmesan cheese and some garlic salt. Bake at 375 for 15-25 minutes.

Ideas for Different Toppings

These pepperoni rolls are so easy to change up! You could make them different each time and then still have them often. If you do this then no one will ever get sick of them! Here are a few ideas:

  • Meat: You can add in different meats! Try ham, sausage, salami, canadian bacon, grilled chicken or even cooked regular bacon!
  • Sauce: Change up the sauce and then make it an entirely different pizza! You can try alfredo sauce or this homemade BBQ sauce.
  • Toppings: This is where you can really switch things up! Add in olives, peppers, tomatoes, pepperoni… Really, anything that you love on a pizza, throw it on now! It will not only change up the taste but it adds in some healthy toppings as well!

Dip It!

If you want to level up this pepperoni roll then you can make some dips for it! Slice it up and put them on a platter with some Homemade Pizza Sauce, Homemade Ranch Dressing, or some Homemade Marinara. This takes it from an easy meal to a delicious appetizer or even an after-school snack!

How to Store Leftovers

You can double the recipe and eat these for leftovers all week! They are super delicious!

  • Refrigerator: Store the pepperoni rolls in an airtight container in your fridge. Then, they will last 3-4 days!
  • Freezer: Wrap up your baked pizza roll in plastic wrap or tinfoil and store it in an airtight container (make sure you write the date on it!). It will last up to 3 months!
  • Reheating: If you are reheating from frozen then bake them at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until heated through.

  1. my Daughter makes this… uses frozen bread dough… same method as you used.. no sauce inside.. tucks the ends over so they are closed .. tops with an eggwash so they get nice & golden brown … very good !

  2. I tired this tonight (it is in the oven) 🙂 although reading your comments I think I know a variation that you would like.
    You use refrigerated French bread. You cut it down the seam and spread it out a bit. Fill with the cheese and any topping you want. Close the edges around the filling making sure to pinch the ends. It calls for two loaves and you twist the lengths together. Then cut air vents and brush with egg white and Italian seasoning, bake at 350 for 20-30 min. The. You heat up sauce and just dip.
    I make these a lot and they are so good.
