Baked Pizza Rolls

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

After we made the Southwestern Egg Rolls a few weeks back, I immediately started thinking of other ways we could use the egg roll wrappers. And well, pizza rolls came to mind quickly. Who doesn't love good ol' fashioned "pizza logs" bar food? And wouldn't we all like to have a healthier version?


These are highly customizable to your tastes. Simply fill them with your favorite pizza toppings. We used mozzarella, turkey pepperoni, onions, and chopped spinach.

When baked up, these become very crispy and are perfect when dipped into your favorite pizza sauce. Delicious and easy... and not too bad for you, either!

Baked Pizza Rolls

Ingredients:
- 2-3 cups mozzarella cheese
- 1-2 handfuls turkey pepperoni slices, halved
- 1/4 onion, diced
- 1 (10 oz.) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
- 1 package egg roll wrappers

Directions:
1. In a large bowl, combine everything but the egg roll wrappers.

2. Lay an egg roll wrapper out on a work surface so that one of the corners is pointing toward you and place 1/4 cup of the filling in the center. Fold the tip closest to you up over the filling, roll a bit, then take the points pointing outward and fold them in toward the center. Continue rolling into an egg roll shape until a small part of the remaining point is still free. Dip a finger in water or beaten egg and lightly brush on the edges of the free corner. Finish rolling and press to seal closed. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.

3. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Lightly oil a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place the sealed egg rolls on the baking sheet seam side down and spray the tops of the egg rolls with cooking spray. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until lightly brown, turning halfway through baking. Serve warm with pizza sauce.
