  • 1 lb pizza dough
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup cooked chicken pieces or mince
  • 1 cup grated Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 green bell pepper chopped
  • 4-5 black olives chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • a pinch of red pepper flakes


  • Line a 9x9 baking dish with parchment paper and keep aside.
  • Lightly flour a work surface and roll the dough into an 8x12 rectangle.
  • Spread the pizza sauce over the dough to the edges.
  • Top with the chicken or mince, then 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese, green pepper and olives.
  • Sprinkle oregano and basil over it.
  • Starting on the long side, roll the dough up to form a log.
  • Trim the edges if uneven, then cut the dough into 9 equal slices.
  • Place the slices, cut side down, in the prepared baking dish, making 3 rows of 3 rolls each.
  • Cover the dish with foil and let it sit to rise for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375ºF.
  • Place the rolls in the preheated oven, still covered, and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the foil and return the pan to the oven and bake for an additional 20 minutes.
  • The rolls should be browned and the cheese melted.
  • Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella and red pepper flakes over the top of the rolls, then return to the oven until the cheese is melted, about 3 minutes.
  • Let the rolls cool slightly in the pan, then top with the remaining basil.
  • Delicious Homemade Pizza Rolls are ready to serve. ENJOY!


Recipe Note's:
You may use whole wheat pizza dough instead of white flour.
If you prefer, you can bake these rolls in two muffin pans or even a 9x13 baking pan.
