Crispy Pizza Rolls

pizza rolls 093

Once a month my husband has a book/Bible study with the men of our church.  The studies are designed to help our men grow as husbands, fathers, and Children of God. Each study usually lasts a few months and our church families usually take turns hosting the meetings in their homes.

About twice a year I do the same study with our ladies. Since all the families in our church have children, we do the men’s and ladies’ studies on different evenings to allow one spouse to stay home with the children.  Of course, when people come to your house, food is served (in keeping with our Southern tradition).  I made these Pepperoni Pizza Rolls at the last “Ladies Meeting”.  They are quite easy, inexpensive and delicious. Everyone loved them. 

I will readily admit, this recipe is not my own.  I don’t remember where I saw it or I would gladly give credit.  It’s a genius idea (I can say that because it’s not my own) and super easy.  What makes these different from other pizza rolls is that the wrapper is an egg roll wrapper instead of pizza dough – an interesting and delicious twist.

Here’s the Recipe:

(printable recipe card below)

Egg Roll Wraps – found in the produce section of the grocery store

String Cheese – Mozzarella


Your Favorite Spaghetti Sauce for Dipping

Keep them warm in oven at 200 degrees until ready to serve

***They will hold up to 30 minutes in oven before serving***

I usually heat the marinara as well

Our “Ladies Meetings” are the perfect combination of Faith, Food and Fellowship!

    Can you bake these instead of using the fryer? We don’t own a fryer and I’d like to keep it that way 😉

      I haven’t tried baking them. I’m not sure. The cheese might melt out before the wraps get crispy. You could try pan frying in a much smaller amount of oil.

    These look super delicious! I will give them a try! Danita, I am a first time visitor…you wouldn’t happen to play Words with Friends would you? I play a girl named Danita and there aren’t that many with that name…just thought I would ask! They say it is a small world! 🙂 I am your newest follower…blessings! ♥

      Thanks Nannette for stopping by. It’s always very encouraging to have new visitors. I don’t play Words with Friends so it isn’t me. I haven’t actually meet anyone else whose first name is Danita but I occasionally hear of others who have. You’re right…it’s a small world. Thanks for following!
