Pepperoni Pizza Rolls

Prep time 1hr
cook time 25mins

The combination of garlic and pepperoni, tucked in between layers of fluffy rolls, make these Pepperoni Pizza Rolls the perfect savoury treat. Can be baked in a 26cm skillet, even better with the Deep Skillet



  • 3 cups strong bread flour, divided
  • 2¼ teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1½ teaspoons honey
  • 1¼ cups lukewarm water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Garlic Butter Pepperoni Filling:

  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Italian dried herbs
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic
  • 150 grams thin-sliced pepperoni/salami
  • 1¼ cups grated mozzerella




  1. Mix ½ cup flour with yeast and salt. Dissolve honey in lukewarm water and add to mixture.  Add olive oil. 
  2. In the bowl of a mixer, or using a wooden spoon, mix for 3 minutes. Mix in remaining flour (dough should be only slightly sticky).
  3. Knead dough on a floured surface until smooth, 5 minutes.
  4. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise for 30 minutes in a warm place.
  5. While the dough is rising, make the garlic butter spread. 

Garlic Butter Pepperoni Filling:

  1. Combine softened butter, parmesan cheese, salt, Italian herbs, and minced garlic. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, blend the ingredients until they come together. 
  2. While you are assembling the rolls, preheat the oven to 200°C.


  1. Once the dough has risen, punch dough down and transfer to lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into two equal parts. Set one dough ball aside and cover with plastic wrap. Roll the dough out to a 25 x 40cm rectangle and spread the garlic spread evenly over the dough. Overlap the pepperoni slices over the garlic spread and sprinkle with the mozzarella. 
  2. Starting with the long end, roll the dough into a log, seam side down, and slice into 7 rolls. (Don’t worry, the dough will seem thin but bakes up very nicely.)
  3. Bake the rolls until they are golden brown, 20-25 minutes.
