Skinny Pizza Rolls

I have shared several sweet recipes, so thought I would share a savory one with you today! I originally found this on Dashing Dish. Katie is one of my favorite bloggers and is a true mentor.

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

Ingredients:
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. 


 Lightly spray the tops of the assembled rolls with non-stick cooking spray and sprinkle Parmesan cheese over rolls. Surprisingly, the Parmesan cheese in the plastic tube works best. It gives the rolls that "cornmeal" type feel. I had fresh on hand, so that's what I used!


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! 

**EDIT**
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!

Wonton wrappers have so many great uses. Pizza rolls are a staple at my house. I think I am going to make them especially since I can freeze them! I'd love it if you stopped by my monthly link up to share these and any thing else you would like to share. http://acraftycook.blogspot.com/2012/01/1-month-of-fun-january-link-up.html

These do sound great for a party finger food. My men will LOVE these...one question: we are trying to get away from GMO (non-organic wheat) anything. do you know of any wrappers that are organic? I haven't found anything anywhere... :( Great idea, though; I will renew my search for OG wrappers.

Once frozen, How do you cook them? In the oven at what temp?

Allison said...

The same! Spray a baking sheet, place them on the sheet, spray rolls with cooking spray and sprinkle on cheese! 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes!
