Making pizza rolls can get expensive if you are buying them ready made from the store. Instead, try this homemade version that uses simple ingredients that you might already have on hand.

If you want to get a little more fancy with your pizza egg rolls you can use whatever fillings you like. I’ll share some of our favorite combinations below. This particular recipe is for pepperoni pizza rollups!

What do I need to make pizza egg rolls?

Like the name implies, these pizza rolls are made with egg roll wrappers. They’re quick and easy to wrap and cook and they are readily available in most grocery stores!

  • Egg Roll Wrappers
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • Pepperoni Slices
  • Water
  • Vegetable Oil (for frying)

You will need about 2 tablespoons of sauce and about 1/8 cup of cheese for each roll and as many pepperoni slices as you’d like to add. The water is for sealing the edges and the vegetable oil is for frying them up when you are doing wrapping!

We usually place all the ingredients out on the table and have fun making our own pizza rolls and then they go into the oil.

What other flavor combinations can we use?

You can make you favorite pizzas into rolls with almost no changes! Here are some flavor combinations that we like!

Meat Lovers

  • Cooked bacon
  • Cooked sausage
  • Pepperoni
  • Sauce
  • Cheese

Veggie Lovers

  • Sliced bell peppers
  • Sliced onions
  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes
  • Sauce
  • Cheese

BBQ Chicken

  • Cooked shredded chicken
  • BBQ sauce
  • Cheddar cheese shredded
  • Diced onions (optional)

You can also make these pizza rolls with any flavor combination that you enjoy. If you have dietary restrictions you can take those into account and fill your rolls with whatever toppings and ingredients you like!

If you like your veggies soft you may want to precook them a bit. Sometimes the few seconds in the oil isn’t enough to make them very soft so precooking can help make sure that everything is done to your liking.

You want to make sure all the meat you are using is precooked as well. The meat will not have ample time to cook when placed into the oil so there’s no way for it to reach a proper internal temperature without prior cooking time!

How to make the pizza rolls:

This is a really easy recipe to make. You’ll love this recipe and once you make them a time or two you’ll have the knack for rolling them and cooking them up. It’s easier (you can make more flavor combinations) and cheaper to make these at home versus buying pizza rolls in the store.

Kitchen essentials for tasty recipes like pizza rolls:

When you head into the kitchen to make some of these great recipes you’ll want to have the best tools on hand.

I like half sheet baking pans that are quality (hello no noisy pops or sloshed cookie dough from twisting), I line my cookie sheets with silicone baking mats. These are great for all kinds of baking and not just cookies! My husband loves them for making biscuits, pizzas, and more!

Of course mixing bowls, a mixerspatula, and some whisks should be on your list if you don’t have ones that you love. I also like to have a set of cooling racks so that my recipes can properly cool before they’re scarfed down by my family!

I ran out and got all the ingredients! Can’t wait!!! Have you made these in the air fryer? I have an aversion to frying anything in oil. :-(

I’ve never made them in the air fryer but I assume you could try it. I’d spray them with cooking spray before hand and put them in at 375 or 400 and keep an eye on them. Roll them around a few times while cooking.
