Loaded Pizza Rolls

The weekends around my house always yield a few things. Time with the kids, creative and fun cooking, and laundry. As we recently wrapped up football season, I decided to make a fun appetizer that I knew would be a hit with my wife, and possibly my kids. In the past I have made these stuffed pepperoni rolls which are so incredibly addictive, and with that in mind, I decided to take those, or at least the concept to another level. This recipe uses simple, frozen bread rolls and stuffed with an array of ingredients. The cool thing about making these is that you can make them how you would want your pizza, and to me, that’s pretty awesome.

These are perfect bites, not only for a football game, but heck, any Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Did I mention how easy they are to make?

Let’s get started.


  • 4 slices of bacon, chopped and cooked until crisp
  • 1/2 cup pepperoni, diced, and cooked until slightly crisp
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded colby jack cheese, to finish
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 stick of unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Rhodes dinner rolls, thawed
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour

Again, you have options here for your stuffing, so go with what you love. You want mushrooms and onions? Go for it. That’s the beauty of cooking.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Melt the butter in a bowl along with the Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Once melted, give it a good stir, and set to the side.

Start by dusting a work area with flour. Take one of your thawed dinner rolls, place it onto the work surface, and gently roll it out with a rolling pin. You want it about a 1/4 inch thick or so.

Next, take a bit of everything, enough where you think it will fit, and then fold over the bread and pinch to seal them. Some of them may open up. Don’t worry, it’s OK. When they bake it just gets even better.

Add the stuffed pizza bread to a baking dish, and continue with however many you would like to make. I made eleven of them.

Drizzle all of the rolls with that butter mixture, then top with the colby jack cheese.

Bake in the oven until the cheese is super bubbly and the bread is cooked through, about 15-20 minutes.

Dig in. It’s almost like monkey bread which always works in my favor, but loaded with everything pizza in a roll form. Super yummy, fun, and perfect for watching a game. My wife and I loved these, but the kids, well, they saw that bell pepper and turned away. Their loss. Hope you enjoy!

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
