Easy pepperoni and cheese pizza roll-ups with pizza sauce, 3 cheeses – mozzarella, cheddar, and parmesan, all baked in rolled-up pizza dough. They’re the perfect bite!

Pepperoni & Cheese Pizza Roll-Ups

These pepperoni and cheese pizza roll-ups are easy to make for an appetizer! They’re fun to make with kiddos too!

To gauge how big they are: they’re not single bites, more like 3 bites!

These are perfect for Superbowl parties, New Year’s appetizers, summer snacks with the kids (that might be more of a meal for them!), or to bake and take into work the next day for lunch.

Pepperoni & Cheese Pizza Roll-Ups

You can leave them as-is with cheese and pepperoni, or you can add more pizza toppings:

  • Replace the pizza sauce with BBQ sauce or alfredo sauce
  • Mushrooms
  • Green Peppers
  • Onions
  • Top with Jalapenos
  • Top with Extra Cheese
  • Banana Peppers
  • Italian Sausage
  • Shredded Chicken

Keep in mind, with each addition, you want to be minimal and cut the vegetables small. Otherwise, you will have difficulties rolling the pizza dough and have filling fall out.

I experimented and also made BBQ chicken roll-ups as well with shredded chicken, BBQ sauce, red onions, and mozzarella cheese. Check them out!

I don’t recommend adding more sauce to the roll-ups. When I did, they were falling apart and not keeping their circular shape. If you are a sauce lover, I recommend using extra pizza sauce for dipping!

Ingredients for Pepperoni & Cheese Pizza Roll-Ups

  • Pillsbury Refrigerated Canned Pizza Crust, or similar
  • Prego Pizza Sauce, or similar
  • Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Pepperoni
  • Pam Cooking Spray or Parchment Paper
Pillsbury Pizza Dough

This is the pizza dough I baked with. It comes with 1 pizza dough per can.

Once you have your ingredients, roll them up, and place them on a greased baking sheet or one lined with parchment paper.

Top a few or all of the roll-ups with pepperoni and pop it in the oven for 15-16 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Easy pepperoni and cheese pizza roll-ups with pizza sauce, 3 cheeses – mozzarella, cheddar, and parmesan, all baked in rolled-up pizza dough. They’re the perfect bite!

Ingredients

  • 1 Refrigerated Canned Pizza Crust (Like Pillsbury’s, see above)

  • 1/2 cup Pizza Sauce

  • 3/4 cup Shredded Mozzarella

  • 3/4 cup Shredded Mild Cheddar

  • 1/4 cup Grated Parmesan

  • Pepperoni

  • Pam Cooking Spray or Parchment Paper

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a baking sheet with Pam nonstick cooking spray or line with parchment paper to prevent sticking.
  • Roll out pizza dough and spread an even layer of pizza sauce. Sprinkle mozzarella, cheddar, and parmesan on top of pizza sauce. Carefully roll the dough up, starting with the long edge. Begin cutting the rolled dough into 2″ thick pieces.
    Note: I began cutting in half in the middle, and then in half again, and so on to get even pieces.
  • Place each roll up flat on the prepared baking sheet. Top each one with pepperoni (or add cheese on top for cheese lovers.) Bake in the oven for about 15-16 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and cooked through the center.

Notes

  • I don’t recommend adding more sauce to the roll-ups. When I did, they were falling apart and not keeping their circular shape. If you are a sauce lover, I recommend using extra pizza sauce for dipping!
