It is raining today, has been raining ALL DAY LONG and not just little rain, big fat stormy, windy rain. What do you do when you can’t play outside?
I usually cook because I hate cleaning, although I could clean…but my house is neat, not spotless…I’d rather cook anyday. 🙂 Last night we had raviolis so I had leftover sauce, mozzarella cheese and there is always pepperoni in the fridge. I know, don’t scream!!! Pepperoni is one of those foods that is always kept because the kid loves it. Recently I bought a package of wonton wrappers so I made homemade pizza rolls!
Easy peasy – I swear, even the kids can make them and they are a million times better than their frozen counterparts with a gazillon ingredients that cannot be pronounced. Even with the pepperoni, the ingredients can be counted and you know what they are. Feel free to switch out the pepperoni for sausage, chicken or just a bunch of chopped veggies.
Step 1: Gather your ingredients – recipe follows tutorial.
Chop up your pepperoni into little pieces
Mix together the mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese(I used pecorino romano instead), garlic powder, black pepper, Italian seasoning and homemade tomato sauce.
Spoon about 1-2 teaspoons of the mixture onto a wonton square. I added the pepperoni to the square first, then the cheesy mixture because some will be just cheese.
Keep a small bowl of water nearby, wet your fingers with the water and run your finger along two edges of the wonton. Fold over the top of the filling and press edges to seal. The water acts like the glue to hold everything together otherwise you will have open face pizzas!!!
Next, place them all on a lightly grease sheet pan – I used my vegetable spray. I then sprayed the tops lightly too. Put in the 450o oven and bake for 10-15 minutes. Mine took exactly 10 minutes.
Oh my goodness, aren’t they scrumptious looking?? Oh and the ones with the folded in tops – those have just the cheesy mixture. 🙂
Homemade Pizza Rolls
24 wonton wrappers – natural or organic
1/2-2/3 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup homemade tomato sauce
12-15 pepperoni slices
1/8 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Pinch of pepper
Preheat oven to 450o. Lightly spray a half sheet pan – approximate size 12×15
Mix up the cheeses, sauce and spices together. Chop the pepperoni and add to the cheesy mix OR keep it separate if making some pepperoni and some just cheese.
Take a square of wonton, place about 1-2 teaspoons of filling on each, you don’t want to overfill. Wet finger with a small bowl of water, and swipe wet finger along two edges of the square. Fold over the wonton, like a triangle and press edges firmly.
Place on the greased sheet pan. Lightly spray tops with cooking spray. Bake in preheated oven for 10-15 minutes. Keep an eye on them the last 5 minutes until they are as brown as you like them. Eat ’em up!
Hope you enjoy!
