These copycat pizza rolls taste WAY better than the original! Super fun and easy to make, these are a hit for appetizers or after school snacks!
Canola or vegetable oil for frying
1 package square wonton wrappers
1 – 16 ounce bag shredded mozzarella cheese (about 3 1/2 cups)
15 ounce can store bought pizza sauce, marinara sauce or your own homemade sauce
Grated parmesan cheese for garnish (optional)
1/2 pound sausage, (casings removed if any) browned and cooked into fine crumbles
1 package mini pepperoni
Chopped mushrooms, broccoli or spinach
Lay a wonton wrapper on a board so that it’s in the shape of a diamond.
Add a teaspoon of sauce, a heaping teaspoon of mozzarella cheese and a sprinkle of Italian seasoning to the middle of the wonton wrapper. This is when you can add additional toppings if you want to, just don’t fill the wonton up so much that it doesn’t seal properly.
Repeat with the remaining wonton wrappers.
Heat a large pot filled halfway with canola or vegetable oil over medium heat. Once the oil reaches 375˚, carefully add a few wontons to the oil and fry for 2-3 minutes until they are golden brown. How many pizza rolls you can fry at once will depend on the size of your pot. You don’t want to add too many at once because it will bring the oil temperature down and the wontons won’t be crisp.
Remove the pizza rolls from the oil when they are golden brown and place them on a plate lined with paper towels. Repeat with the rest of the pizza rolls.
Serve immediately with extra sauce for dipping, or keep warm in a 300 degree oven for up to an hour.
Air Fryer Directions:
Heat your air fryer to 400 degrees. Spray pizza rolls with an oil cooking spray and add to your air fryer in a single layer.
Cook for 6 minutes, flip and cook for 3-4 minutes longer.
