I make these pizza rolls a few times a month. Don't be intimidated if you have never used wonton wrappers before, they are very easy to use. You can find them in the produce section of the grocery store, paired with the eggroll wrappers. These make a great dinner paired with a salad or would be great for the upcoming Super Bowl!
With the use of turkey pepperonis and wonton wrappers, these pizza rolls come out to be 30 calories each. Yes, 30. My husband (the ultimate taste tester) LOVES these. I promise you won't be sacrificing any taste or nutrition by leaving the frozen ones at the store.
What I love about these rolls, is how diverse you can make them. You can add any other typical pizza toppings to the mixture, sausage, chicken, veggies, you name it!
**The original recipe calls for regular turkey pepperoni. I had the mini turkey pepperonis on hand. By using these, I was able to skip slicing the pepperonis.***
Skinny Pizza Rolls
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Bake: 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes
Cool: 3-5 minutes
Yield: 24 rolls
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup tomato sauce OR marinara sauce OR pizza sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (or more to taste)
1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning (or more to taste, I also substitute fresh basil occasionally)
20 turkey pepperonis
24 wonton wrappers
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese (for sprinkling)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine tomato sauce, mozzerella cheese, and spices. Slice pepperonis into quarters and add to mixture, stirring to combine.
Add a tablespoon of filling to the center of a wonton wrapper.
Dip your finger in water and trace along the top edge of the wrapper. Bring the bottom point up to meet the top point and press firmly to seal. Place roll onto baking sheet. Repeat until all wrappers have been assembled.
Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Just like pizza, it is always best to let it cool a few minutes before serving. Things seem to stay together better that way. Enjoy!
I thought I would also add, that I normally double the recipe to use all of the wonton wrapper up. I end up with 2 baking sheets of pizza rolls. One sheet goes into the oven and the other goes into the freezer. Once frozen, I add them to a large freezer bag in single layers with parchment paper in between each layer. They freeze SO well and just like the store bough frozen pizza rolls, they are so simple to take a few out and bake!
