Tonight, we had Homemade Pepperoni Pizza Rolls for dinner 🙂
I first made these for my husband a few years ago for a football game snack.
My son remembered them and asked me to make them again for dinner.
Who doesn’t love a good snacky-snack dinner every once in awhile, right?!
The key is getting them sealed so they don’t fall apart in the oil.
How to Make Homemade Pepperoni Pizza Rolls
I lay each egg roll wrapper flat and diagonal, place 5 pieces of pepperoni, a string cheese, and some italian seasoning in the center.
Next, dip your finger in some water and trace it along the edges.
Then, fold in the corners and roll it up.
Pressing the seams together slightly to make sure they are sealed.
Fold the front corner in over the cheese.
And then roll it up!
Kind of like a pizza egg roll, right?!
Pour just enough vegetable oil into a small skillet to fill about 1 inch deep.
I heat it over medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until the oil is 325 to 350 degrees.
Place 3 pizza rolls in the oil at a time, fry about 1 to 2 minutes per side and drain on paper towels.
Repeat with remaining pizza rolls.
Serve with these Homemade Pepperoni Pizza Rolls with pizza sauce on the side for dipping 🙂

Homemade Pepperoni Pizza Rolls
My family's favorite game day snack, a fun twist on regular pizza rolls
- 12 egg rolls wrappers
- 1 6 oz bag pepperoni
- 12 mozzarella string cheese sticks
- italian seasoning
- 1/4 cup water
- vegetable oil
- 1 cup pizza sauce
Lay each egg roll wrapper flat and diagonal, with a corner facing toward you. In the center lay 5 pieces of pepperoni, a string cheese on top of the pepperoni, and some italian seasoning.
Dip your finger in the water and trace around the edges of the egg roll wrapper. Fold the corners in and roll up the wrapper, pressing the seams closed. (see pictures in post above for assistance)
In a small skillet, pour enough vegetable oil to fill 1 inch deep. Heat over medium heat for 5 minutes, or until the oil is about 325 to 350 degrees.
Place 3 egg rolls at a time into the oil for 1 to 2 minutes, flip and fry an additional 1 to 2 minutes. Place on paper towels to remove excess oil. Repeat with remaining pizza rolls.
Serve with pizza sauce for dipping.
