Easy Pepperoni Pizza Roll-Ups

After all the holiday cooking last week, I needed some simple recipes for dinner this week.  I saw these pepperoni rolls on Pinterest and decided to make them for pizza night.  

This is one of those “why didn’t I think of that” recipes!  I can’t believe I’ve never thought to do this before.   These pepperoni rolls were so simple and super tasty!  We will be eating these again very soon!

How to Make Crescent Pepperoni Roll-Ups

These pizza rolls are super simple to make. Separate a can of crescent rolls into 8 rolls. Place 5 slices of pepperoni on the wide end of the crescent roll. Top with a half slice of string cheese. Roll the crescent roll up and place on a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining rolls. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake until golden brown.

What to Serve with Pizza Rolls

We like to serve these pizza rolls with some warm pizza sauce and a salad or pasta salad. These are also great with some warm Alfredo sauce. Give these a try for your next pizza night. I promise you won’t be disappointed!

    1. I made these tonight with turkey pepperoni and lowfat mozzarella cheese sticks. They were awesome with leftover angel hair pasta smoked gruyere cheese and marinara sauce.

  1. These were good. For those of you that mentioned the rolls burning on the bottom,use parchment paper. I also spread a little,sauce on mine before baking. I did not have string cheese so I cut pieces of cheese from a block. It worked fine.

  2. Made these for my 2 & 10 year old niece…they loved them. I added garlic to the melted butter, and add shredded cheese to the top, and they tasted great!! Got from pinterest

  3. These are so easy and SO tasty! They're just like Hot Pockets, only homemade and much tastier. I featured my take on the recipe here!

  4. I made these today with Hormel turkey pepperoni, reduced fat crescent rolls and light string cheese. They turned out delicious. Thanks, Jenn.

  5. Thanks for the great recipe, my family loved it. I blogged about it with links back to you and credit. Thanks again. We loved it.

  6. I had these for supper tonight while I was babysitting my two nephews (10 and 8) and my niece (12) and they loved it. They made them. They are extremely filling. I served them with warmed up spaghetti sauce I had on hand.

    I did omit the garlic powder! Not a fan personally.

    Thank you so much! It was a blessing because I had coupons so I was able to do it on the cheap!

  7. I've made these a couple of times and they are amazing! I nuke the string cheese for a few seconds; the first time I made these the string cheese didn't melt at all (not surprising with the low cook time and the fact that the cheese was straight out of the fridge)

    I like to sprinkle a little Italian seasoning on them with the garlic powder.

  8. Coming here from Pinterest. Followed recipe as written and may I say, "YUMMMM!" This is definitely going in the rotation! Looking forward to coming up with other variations!

  9. I love making these, but everytime i do…somehow the cresant rolls burn on the bottom and then they are left uncooked and raw

  10. My dd made these when she went babysitting. They loved them so much that the mom asked for the recipe and I printed the recipe from your site giving you credit. We've had them for dinner several times and we're having them again tonight. We especially like them with the swirl cheese sticks.

  11. Just made these! Was out of pasta sauce so we ate them with ranch. I really think they would have tasted better with the sauce! But they were still really good!

  12. RiRi – you would need to bake them first and then freeze them. You can pop them in the microwave for about 30 seconds when you are ready to eat them.

    Crescent rolls won't rise as well if you freeze them before baking.

  13. This is an awesome recipe!! I was wondering if they can be prepared ahead of time & frozen? If so, when they are taken out of the freezer, what temp would you bake them at, & for how long? Thanks.

  14. I thought these were very tasty! I love that the crescent roll gives the "crust" a different flavor. I could have eaten a hundred of them! Unfortunately, my eight year old did not like the crescent roll and refused to eat anything but the pepperoni and cheese dipped in sauce…but what does he know???? LOL Plus, it really wasn't enough for a dinner for an eight year old, a five year old, and me. But I think I will use it as an appy recipe, cause I think they'd go over HUGE! Consider me on board with these!!!

  15. Wonder how they would do in a lunch box, either cooked the night before or in the morning. Might have to try that for my very picky son.

  16. just made these for Senior Bowl snacks and they are amazing! I puta little dollop of sauce right on the roll before I put the pep, then served with ranch! I also used some Canadian bacon, great! GOTTA LOVE PINTEREST!

  17. Making these for dinner tonight! Can't wait to see how the turn out… They look super yummy! Found on Pinterest!! <3

  18. I found this post thru none other than pinterest and made them for dinner tonight. My son gave them a 8/10! Big hit here too! 🙂

  19. Made these last night for the Saints football game, they were a big hit. My very picky son loved them and asked if I could make some more. They were gone in a flash. Super easy and yummy!

  20. like many of your other readers, i found this on pinterest. i've got the ingredients in the kitchen and am going to make these for dinner. looking forward to browsing (and probably pinning) some of your other recipes and ideas!

  21. I'm on Weight Watchers so I used turkey pepperoni, reduced fat crescent rolls, and light string cheese, and they turned out awesome!!! I will definitely be making these again. Thank you!

  22. I found these on pinterest and made them the other night. My family ate them up! PS – I love how seasoned your round stone is!

  23. Made these for dinner last night! They were a huge hit — even with the kids (who usually take a while to warm up to a new dish)!

    I did use regular pepperoni instead of turkey (because I already had it on hand). I was afraid the extra grease would make them turn out soggy, but they were perfect! I'll try the turkey pepperoni next time, just to try something new.

  24. This is on my to make list from Pinterest too.

    I've never heard of that pepperoni brand. I'm gonna have to keep my eyes peeled!

  25. I really enjoy reading your blog. You have a lot of quick and simple recipes that looks delicious. Thank for sharing.

  26. These look awesome and pretty simple too! I have seen them on pinterest, pretty sure I have pinned them, but I haven't had a chance to try them. Might have to make them for football game snacks this weekend! 🙂
