I am excited to share with you another of my family’s favorite dishes. We have been eating pizza rolls for decades. I remember making pizza rolls with my mom when I was a teenager. Now that my mom is living with us, it’s fun to make pizza rolls with her again, this time with my daughters in the kitchen with us.

Since I have five siblings, we have adapted this recipe over the years to feed a crowd. Whenever any of my brothers or nephews have a birthday or a cause for celebration, they request pizza rolls. We have made these pizza rolls for numerous guests and family friends over the years, and they have always been a huge hit.These pizza rolls are delicious crowd pleasers! www.TeepeeGirl.com

The most difficult part of this recipe (and it’s not very difficult) is assembling the pizza rolls in the egg roll wrappers. It’s just like rolling up an egg roll. I have photos and instructions below:

After the pizza rolls are wrapped and fried, it’s time to dig it! They are so scrumptious dipped in marinara or pasta sauce. We dip them in store-bought pasta sauce. Yum, yum, yummy!

  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • ½ tablespoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ tablespoon Italian seasoning

  3. Add the Parmesan and cheddar cheese. If desired, add the fresh basil. Add any additional salt and pepper, as needed.

I love photoshop, naps, and chocolate. I have an etsy shop where you can see some of the things I have created when I have been eating chocolate while playing on photoshop. As for the naps, I am always hoping one is around the corner. ♥
