I love this time of year so much. Here in New York it’s not just fall yet, but I do think you can feel it in the air. A few of the leaves have turned to light shades of gold and yellow. Honestly, it’s just exciting, I love the fall season so much.

Now that the NFL season has officially kicked off, it’s back to Monday night, Thursday night, and Sunday night football. This means appetizer season is in full swing. We’re looking for great recipes to serve up on game night that can double for the holidays too. Because the holidays will be here before we know it!

One of our favorite foods for game nights is, of course, a good slice of pizza. As a kid, we’d occasionally pick up a couple of pizzas, usually one cheese and another buffalo chicken.

So yummy and such a treat as a young kid.

This season instead of doing another pizza, I thought some cheesy pizza rolls would be especially fun and delicious. And you all, these really did turn out so good. They’re extra cheesy, which to me, is the best kind of pizza roll.

The details

Step 1: mix the cheeses and herbs

First up, take the grated parmesan cheese and mix it with dried basil, oregano, and parsley. Then add a clove of garlic garlic and a good handful of mozzarella cheese.

You can really use any melty cheese that you love. Fontina and Gouda would be great!

Step 2: layer, tuck, and roll

Now, working with a square egg roll wrapper, you’ll want to layer your favorite marinara sauce with a slice of provolone cheese, then the mozzarella cheese mix from step 1, and finish with a pepperoni slice.

Tuck and roll. The rolling process is simple, roll up, then tuck the sides inward to enclose, and finish rolling. Your first two might be a bit messy, but you’ll get the hang of the process after a few. And don’t stress these do not need to be perfect. The cheese will melt out a bit no matter what.

Step 3: toss them in butter and parmesan, then bake

Now, melt some of the butter, then sprinkle over that remaining bit of parmesan cheese.

Bake these up in a super hot oven. About halfway through cooking add a pepperoni slice on top, then continue baking until crispy and cheesy, they’re going to smell so delicious.

When you pull the rolls out of the oven the cheese will be bubbling away. The excitement to break apart each roll and enjoy them is immediate. And that’s exactly what you should do! Serve the rolls right away while the cheese is still warm and gooey.

These rolls are like pizza, but in a fun new form, and with delicious garlic butter in every bite. The garlic butter really does make these rolls better than all the rest!

I’m excited to have these on hand for Sunday night games, but also for the upcoming holiday season! Great for Friendsgiving, Thanksgiving, and all the holiday parties to come in December! They’re even festive and pretty.

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 425° F. Lightly grease 2 baking sheets.
    2. In a bowl, combine 1/2 cup grated parmesan, the dried basil, oregano, parsley, chili flakes, and 1 clove of garlic. Mix in the mozzarella.
    3.  To assemble, brush water around the edges of the wrapper, then layer with 1 tablespoon of marinara sauce, 1 slice provolone, and about 1 tablespoon of the mozzarella mix. Add 1 pepperoni slice. Do not overstuff these with ingredients. Roll up and place on the baking sheet.
    4. Melt 5 tablespoons of butter, then brush each roll with the butter. Sprinkle evenly with the remaining 1/4 cup parmesan cheese. Bake for 10-12 minutes, then flip, add 1-2 pepperoni slices, and cook another 8-10 minutes, or until the rolls are crisp. The cheese may melt out a bit, but that's ok.
    5. Meanwhile, melt 3 tablespoons butter together with the sage, let the sage get crisp, then remove from the heat and add 1 clove of grated garlic. Top each roll with the garlic butter. Serve with marinara sauce on the side.

  1. My kids love these rolls!! I wanted to make an extra batch to freeze, and use for their school lunches, but how long do you think Ill need to cook them when I need to use them?

  2. Oops I guess if I would have read the recipe right I would have seen egg roll wrappers! Oh well bite size! Kids still loved them!

  3. These look great. Was wondering if they would stand up to freezing. Think they might make an excellent treat for the working members of the family to take for a quick snack if so

  4. 5 stars
    Just made these for a game day party! ❤️🖤Used a little less butter and still came out deliciously! Thanks for fun recipe!

  5. 5 stars
    Just made these and can’t wait to make them again!
    I’m not a pepperoni fan so I did half with pepperoni (added 3-4 slices) and half with a half slice of deli ham.
    I also made them in the air fryer instead of oven and they were perfect!
    5 mins at 400 then based with the butter and put them in for another 2 mins. So delicious!

  6. Here in the UK what I love about your recipes Tieghan is that they are so varied and so different from many of our great recipe writers here. I love your Tex-Mex vibe particularly. And, on the comments to do with healthy recipes below …I just made your chicken tzatziki bowls this weekend. Absolutely delicious, plenty of veggies and I subbed low cal Greek yogurt as we are watching our calories. Supper fresh, super healthy and very tasty. Thank you! I would just recommend followers to pick their recipes for the occasion …game night indulgence is a treat not for every day!

  7. Can you please do some healthier recipes? We’ve been asking for quite awhile to have recipes on the healthier side but all you seem to so now is cheese and butter. You just said in your Q&A that you listen to your followers needs and that is important. Clearly not.

    1. There are a million other recipe creators that you could choose instead. A quick google search will find you any kind of recipe you want with your version of healthy. What’s wrong with cheese and butter? My family has loved every recipe I’ve tried from halfbakedharvest, and I have a picky eater. What you call unhealthy, I call good homecooking, with less artificial ingredients and preservatives.

          I loved the idea of these, but they came out super greasy. If you can make them correctly, I added a side salad for a complete meal.

    2. Her recipes are super easy to modify. Stuff these with a cheese alternative and use less butter. So many of us love her recipes as is but you kill the vibe with the harsh public comment 🙁
