Pizza Rolls

Pizza Rolls ready to dip

Oh my gosh!  Pizza Rolls!!!  These are pretty nostalgic for me and I can remember buying the frozen ones and baking them in the oven.  They were our go-to appetizer and party food!  I don’t see these around too much anymore, but did we ever adore Pizza Rolls!!!  I have come up with a homemade version that the kids can’t stop eating!!!

Cheese and Salami

Just like any pizza, the fillings are your choice!  I kept it simple and just did salami and cheese.  Add mushrooms, peppers, pineapple anything you want!  Just make sure that you chop everything up finely!  It makes the roll easier!  The key ingredients are cheese and Egg Roll Wraps! These square wrappers are so easy to work with and so delicious once lightly fried.

Cheesey rolly up

Just stuff and roll!  To assemble, just lay one egg roll wrapper onto the table, diamond way. In the middle of each wrapper add 1 heaping spoonful of cheese and a bit of salami and or veggies.  Fold up the corner to cover the fillings.

Fold in and fold up

Then fold in the sides and roll until you are almost at the end.  Finally, dip your fingers in water and trace around the edges and complete your roll and seal.  That is it!

Roll UpRolled and Ready

If you have too many, you can put these on a tray and freeze them, when frozen transfer them to a zip-lock bag. They are then lightly fried in oil until they are hot and golden.  Drain on a paper towel.
