We were invited to our old neighbor’s annual Halloween parade yesterday and I needed a quick recipe to make. It’s a potluck and there’s always so much delicious food. I was looking for an appetizer that would be ok at room temperature, finger-food and would take no time at all to make after a morning and early afternoon filled with lacrosse practice, a soccer game and a quick grocery shopping trip.
These Pepperoni Pizza Roll-ups were perfect! They use puffed pastry, pizza sauce, cheese and pepperoni. You could easily switch out the pepperoni to bacon, veggies or omit it all together. What is your favorite pizza topping that you’d add to your pizza roll-ups?
1 package of puff pastry sheets (2 per box)
1/2 – 3/4 cup of your favorite pizza sauce
8 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
28 slices of thinly sliced pepperoni
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp dried Italian seasoning
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Unroll both sheets of puff pastry dough and divide the pizza sauce and cheese evenly between the two sheets. Place 16 slices of pepperoni on each one. Starting on one side, begin to tightly roll the dough sheets up. Press the end of the dough into the roll to “seal” the toppings in. Repeat the rolling process with the other sheet of puff pastry.
Lightly brush olive oil over both rolls of dough. Sprinkle the dried Italian seasoning over the oiled dough. Cut each roll into 12 equal slices with a serrated knife. Place on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the dough is cooked through and the cheese and sauce are bubbly. Serve warm or at room temperature.
