How to Make Pepperoni Rolls

Save

Casual party food puts easy recipes with only a few friendly ingredients on the table, allowing the hosts to enjoy time with the guests. Pepperoni and cheese rolled into crescent or biscuit dough -- the kind you find in refrigerated tubes at your grocery store -- please a crowd but take just minutes to make. Bake them in the oven for 15 minutes, then serve your guests a last-second snack that's first-class in taste.

Things You'll Need

  • Packaged crescent roll or biscuit dough
  • Pepperoni slices
  • Shredded cheese such as mozzarella, provolone, Parmesan, fontina or a combination
  • Cooking spray
  • Melted butter or egg wash (optional)
  • Dried Italian seasoning
  • Grated Parmesan
  • Heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Separate the dough into pieces and flatten them slightly with your fingers.

  • Place three to five pepperoni slices side-by-side, overlapping slightly, in the center of each dough piece. Cover each piece of pepperoni with a generous sprinkling of cheese.

  • Fold or roll each piece of dough to secure the pepperoni and cheese inside. Roll crescents from the short side of the triangle. Position them on a lightly greased cookie sheet seam-side down, about 4 inches apart.

  • Mist each roll with cooking spray or brush lightly with melted butter or an egg wash. Sprinkle dried Italian seasoning and grated Parmesan on top.

  • Bake the pepperoni rolls until golden brown, about 12 to 15 minutes. Serve them with warm tomato or other sauce for dipping.

Tips & Warnings

  • Add other popular pizza toppings, such as sauteed mushrooms and onions, black olives or diced green chilies to the rolls before sealing them.
  • For increased portability, spread a scant tablespoon of sauce on each piece of dough before adding the pepperoni and cheese.
  • For a fancier presentation, serve the rolls with a medley of dipping sauces, such as marinara, pesto and extra virgin olive oil speckled with red pepper flakes.
