This is “the” after school snack you’ll want to keep on hand, especially if you have growing and active teens. This is also a great one to teach your college aged kids to make, so they can enjoy it in the dorm kitchens. It beats buying high priced snacks all the time to share with friends.
🍽️ Why This Recipe Works
New Favorite – We also predict this is going to be one of your Top Five Favorite Snack recipes. Don’t forget about making it for watching sporting events! I like making a lot of treats when we have friends over to watch the game, and I started including this for those who stick to a Keto diet.
Simple – This is simple to make. If your teens are new to cooking, this is a great one to get them started. It is so rewarding to make something that you really want to bite into when it’s done!
Three Ingredients – It just doesn’t get much easier than that.
Fast – We are talking six minutes from the time you put them in the oven until you are ready to start chomping down.
If you aren’t drooling after looking at these pizza rolls, I will be shocked. You don’t even have to eat low carb to enjoy all the flavors and texture they offer. Let’s break down the ingredients really quick:
Mozzarella: The star of the show is the mozzarella cheese. Use slices of a good quality mozzarella for the best results and flavor. Ask for them at the cheese counter in your grocery store.
Pepperoni: I’m pretty much starving thinking about biting into this pepperoni. Yummy! You only need 12 slices, and you’ll be in food heaven.
Marinara Sauce: The marinara sauce is completely optional. We love to dip our pizza rolls into the warm sauce.
Step One: Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees. Then, line a cookie sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper.
Note: Find pre cut parchment paper that fits the sheet pan. This has been the biggest timesaver for me. It only costs a few cents, but makes cleanup a snap! 😍
Step Two: Lay the sliced cheese on the sheet pan liner, add a couple slices of pepperoni, and pop them in the oven for six minutes. No, these don’t take a lot of time – so be sure to watch your kitchen timer! See if the cheese has turned brown around the edges and remove them from the oven.
Step Three: While your Pizza Rolls are cooling, sprinkle Italian seasoning on them and roll them up.
Step Four: Let them cool to a comfortable temperature to eat. Serve with your favorite keto-friendly dipping sauce.
🍲 Expert Tips and Tricks
Always add a liner to your cookie sheet. Whether you use a baking mat or parchment paper, it will make cleanup a breeze!
Trust your oven to get the perfect cooking time. You know if your oven cooks a little faster or a little slower. Look for the cheese to melt and turn a little brown. That is your sign that they are ready to come out of the oven.
Making these for a party or friends coming over? Keep in mind that most will eat between two to four pizza rolls. Count the number of people who are coming and then make as many batches that you need for the amount of people you are expecting.
🍴 Additions and Substitutions
- The first thing I would want to do on this recipe to change it up a bit is to drizzle the olive oil/herb spread that is used in the Portobello Mushroom Pizza recipe. That is really going to jazz up the flavor quite a bit for minimal effort.
- Another idea is to put ham on top of it instead of pepperoni.
- Try adding a few leaves of spinach instead of the meat. This is a great way to make this vegetarian.
- Grab a jar of Keto friendly sauce and spread a ½ tsp on the cheese slice.
🍽️ Meal Prep Tips
We believe that there are always ways to meal prep. Even saving just a few minutes will add up! For this recipe, it is all about the preparation. Stack the cheese in a baggie in the fridge the night before and lay out the other ingredients.
Line a cookie sheet with a baking mat or parchment paper.
When you are ready to cook, just grab everything that is already staged, pop it in the oven and eat!
Sure! You need to worry about the crust, but there are options on the market. To get the same great taste, try these pizza rolls. I bet it satisfies your craving!
I like the marinara sauce! It really makes this taste like a low-carb pizza. Swap it out for a blue cheese or ranch dressing, but make sure that they are keto-friendly.
