Prep Time: 15 minutes
Bake Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
Servings: 12 rolls


For the pizza dough:

  • 1 & 1/4 cups lukewarm water, at around 105°F
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 2 & 1/2 teaspoons active dry or instant yeast
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for kneading and shaping
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

For the pizza roll filling:

  • 2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
  • pizza sauce * see notes
  • any additional pizza toppings you like (optional)


  • In a large bowl, combine warm water, sugar, and yeast. Whisk to combine, and set aside for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the mixture is foamy on top.
  • Add your flour, salt, and oil to the yeast mixture. Stir together until it starts to come together into a rough dough. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead for 5 to 10 minutes, adding flour as needed, until you have a smooth and elastic ball of dough.
  • Lightly oil your bowl, and place the dough in the bowl. Turn to coat all the sides in the oil. Cover, and set aside in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes, or until about doubled in size.
    Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a 9x13 inch baking dish with parchment paper, and set aside.
  • Turn the risen dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Roll it out into a rough rectangle that's about 12x24 inches large. Spread your pizza sauce onto the surface of the dough, and sprinkle with your cheese, as well as any other toppings you like.
  • Working on the long side, roll the dough up tightly into a 12 inch long log. Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into 12 equal rolls. Arrange the rolls in your parchment lined baking sheet, cut side up.
  • Bake the pizza rolls in the center of your preheated 350°F oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Cool slightly before serving!



* To be honest, I never measure my pizza sauce, which is why there's no amount listed. You can add as much or as little as you like depending on your preference. Just bear in mind that adding too much sauce can make it difficult to roll - so so add in moderation! You can even leave out the sauce, and dip the rolls in pizza sauce after baking!
