Imagine merging the gooey, cheesy goodness of pizza with the crispy, golden exterior of an egg roll. Yes, you’re not dreaming!

Can I use homemade pizza sauce?

Absolutely, homemade sauce will only add to the flavor and allow you to control the seasoning.

Can these be baked instead of fried?

Yes, you can bake them at 400°F for about 12-15 minutes, but they won’t be as crispy as their fried counterparts.

Can I add veggies?

Feel free to add your favorite pizza toppings like mushrooms, bell peppers, or olives. Just make sure to dice them small enough to fit inside the wrapper.

Easy Pizza Egg Rolls Recipe

You are going to start this recipe by using egg roll wrappers. Although this might seem weird, these egg roll wrappers are truly the star of the show in this recipe.

Pizza Egg Rolls Tips and Tricks

  1. Drain the sauce: Too much liquid can make the egg rolls soggy, so try to drain off excess sauce.
  2. Seal tightly: Make sure to seal the egg rolls properly to avoid leaks during frying.
  3. Don’t Overstuff: Overfilling the wrappers can lead to breaking or uneven cooking.


  1. Cheese Burst: Replace string cheese with a mix of mozzarella and cheddar for a cheese explosion.
  2. Meat Lovers: Add some cooked sausage or crumbled bacon for extra protein.
  3. Veggie Delight: Skip the pepperoni and add a mix of finely chopped veggies.

These Pizza Egg Rolls are best when eaten fresh but can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 days. Reheat them in the oven to get back some of that initial crispiness. Freezing is not recommended as the texture may suffer.

Common Problems and How to Avoid Them

  1. Soggy Texture: This often happens if there’s too much sauce. Drain off excess sauce to avoid this.
  2. Breaking while Frying: Make sure to seal the edges well and don’t overstuff.
  3. Uneven Cooking: Don’t crowd the frying pan. Fry a few at a time so they cook evenly.

Tips for Making This Recipe with Kids

  1. Wrapper Rolling: Teach kids how to roll the wrappers. It’s a fun activity and helps improve their fine motor skills.
  2. Ingredient Prep: Let them lay out the pepperoni and string cheese on each wrapper.
  3. Sauce Spreading: Kids love spreading sauce; just supervise so it doesn’t get too messy!
