Pepperoni Pizza Rolls - The perfect treat for the pizza lovers out there!!

Hi Bold Bakers!

If you know me you know I am passionate about pizza! From my Microwave Mug Pizza to my Pizza Monkey Bread, let’s just say I know what do to with some pizza sauce, cheese and pepperoni! This recipe for Pepperoni Pizza Rolls is my latest addition to Bigger Bolder Baking’s pizza interpretations and I must say, it might become your favorite.

These Pepperoni Pizza Rolls started with the idea of a classic cinnamon roll. I swapped out the sweet filling for all the best parts of a pepperoni pizza and BAM, Pepperoni Pizza Rolls! I can’t describe to you how yummy these rolls are. I start by making a yeasty dough just like you would for a cinnamon roll.  The best part of the dough is that it is made up easily on my stand mixer. Once the dough has proofed and developed lots of that yeasty flavor I roll it out then get it all dressed up like a pizza. A big smear of minced garlic and my 5 Minute Pizza Sauce  are the first to go on my dough, followed by a generous helping of shredded mozzarella.  Last, but not least, I add a sprinkle of chopped-up pepperoni.

After I roll up the pepperoni pizza filled dough I slice it into thick individual rolls, with perfect pizza spiral centers. These beauties bake up to be big and fluffy, filled with melted cheese and zesty pepperoni. I think you and your family will find these irresistible. They are perfect for lunch or a savory afternoon treat. I can’t wait for you to dig into these Pepperoni Pizza Rolls!

Ingredients

  • 3 ¼ cups (1lb1oz/510g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • teaspoons Instant, fast acting dried yeast
  • 2 tablespoons (1oz/30g) butter, cubed
  • 1 cups (8floz/240ml) milk
  • 3 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1/2 cup (5oz/150g) pizza sauce
  • 3 cups (24oz/720g) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup (11/4oz/40g) pepperoni, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons Italain herbs

Instructions

  • For the dough: Mix the flour, yeast, and salt together in a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook.
  • In a measuring jug, heat the milk and butter until the milk is lukewarm and the butter is melted.
  • Turn the mixer on low and slowly add the milk mixture to the flour. Mix for 2 minutes on low speed to wake up the yeast. Increase the speed to medium and mix for roughly 6-8 minutes, or until the dough is shiny and smooth. (if your dough seems a little wet add some flour just to make it form a ball)
  • When your dough is ready, take it off the machine and rub the dough and bowl with olive oil (or any flavorless oil). This will help the dough to rise in the bowl.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough rise at room temperature until doubled, 1 ½ -2 hours, depending on your room temperature.
  • Once the dough has proofed, gently remove the dough from the bowl knocking out the air.
  • Transfer the dough to a floured work surface, and roll it into a rectangle approximately 12 inches by 24 inches.
  • First spread the minced garlic across the dough followed by a thin layer of pizza sauce, then cheese and pepperoni. Be sure to leave a narrow margin around the edges uncovered.
  • Starting with a long edge, gently roll the dough into a log.
  • Slice the rolls 3” thick and set them on a baking pan lined with parchment, spacing the buns about 2 inches apart.
  • (AT THIS POINT YOU CAN REFRIGERATE TO BAKE OFF THE FOLLOWING DAY IF YOU WISH)
  • Cover the pan, and allow the rolls to rise until they're have grown into each other and are puffed up, about 45 minutes -1 hour. (depending on how hot your kitchen is).
  • Towards the end of the rising time, preheat the oven to 375oF/ 190oC. Uncover the pan, and bake the buns for 35 to 40 minutes, until they're a deep golden brown. Rotate the tray during baking so they can get golden brown all over.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and let it rest for 10 minutes. Enjoy!
  • Store in an air tight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.

HI Gemma, My question is about the dough. Due to arthritis, I often use the dough cycle on my bread machine. Do you think that this can be done with your recipe ? I would complete as you do after first rise.

Hey Gemma, Just want to share my experience here! Tried this recipe with ham instead of pepperoni, really yummy. Although my dough didn’t really puff up much. I believe my milk was too warm (I might have murdered my yeast??!) so the dough was warm and elastic-hard (not very soft). I proved it for more than 2hours but it didn’t doubled (it is bigger but not double). Also, I used 190deg with fan and the top part of the rolls are quite hard but below was great, should I use traditional mode instead? I am going to try it again… Read more »

Hi Gemma!….Hope you, Kevin & adorable Baby George are doing well during these challenging times…

Although I truly love your recipes & all of your instruction videos, I am trying to maintain a low-carb diet…SO, can you please advise on the following:
(1) Best low-carb substitute for all purpose flour?
(2) Best low-carb substitute for bread flour?

I would LOVE to see you create a “low-carb substitution chart” (similar to your egg substitute chart!) for your recipes. What are your thoughts??…..I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks for all you do & continue to stay safe!……Best — Aruna 🙏😎🌈

Hello gemma! If I want to make your pizza or even cinnamon rolls the night before and I want to bake them early morning, do I just leave it in the refrigerator before shaping and proofing? Or shape it first and proof in the refrigerator? Then, take it out for a fee minutes in room temperature to bake? Or bake it straight from the fridge? Thanks! All the love from ph!

Hi, gemma! I was wondering if I could bake your pizza rolls and cinnamon rolls at the same time in the oven? Would it be okay? Or will it leave a weird taste and smell on each other?

Can I make them and freeze them before baking them in the oven? for example if I just want to bake a few, if I put them in the freezer would I be able to bake them later on another day?

My dough is super dense even though I followed the instructions. I did some research and discovered that yeast and salt should not be mixed together and causes dense dough. The salt should be added after mixing all the ingredients first.

Hi, you mentioned precooking fillings so they aren’t too wet, would you do the same if you were adding pineapple chunks?
