Pizza Roll Casserole Recipe
Doesn’t it look just delicious? Back when Angeline was younger, my ex husband and I would pick Angeline up from after school care on Friday afternoon, and go to Blockbuster together – yes, Blockbuster was still a thing back then, it was the early 2000s! – and pick out a few movies for the weekend.
We’d start with a movie for the whole family, then find something for us to watch late Friday night after Angeline went to bed, then something for her to enjoy over the weekend.

Are recipe books still a thing in your household? Check out these cool recipe books (of course they are all blank, so that you can fill them up with your own recipes!) on Amazon!
Now, while we would get our candy and popcorn from Blockbuster, as they always had a sale or some kind of bundle deal for all of those tasty treats at the check out register, we couldn’t exactly pick up dinner at Blockbuster, now could we?
So we would go home, start our first movie and order a pizza or Chinese food delivery.
It was our weekend tradition until Angeline got a little older and started hanging out with her friends on weekend nights.
This easy weeknight recipe would be the perfect substitution for that pizza delivery, I wish I had the recipe back then!

Pizza Roll Casserole Recipe Directions
Preheat your oven to 400 and grease a small casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray or butter. I prefer nonstick cooking spray, like PAM, as it distributes more evenly and it’s as messy!
Place the dough onto a lightly floured surface and flatten to the size of a baking sheet (10 x 15). Spread pizza sauce onto the dough keeping it 1/2″ from the edge. Top with cheese, pepperoni and sausage.
Roll the dough from the long side.
Pinch the seams together as best as you can. Cut the dough into 8 pieces.
Add small score marks with a knife to aid in cutting an equal number of pieces. Place rolls into prepared baking pan.
Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with fresh basil and serve with pizza sauce for dipping.
This Pizza Roll Casserole Recipe serves four.
Now, you can get creative with this Pizza Roll Casserole Recipe, by adding different cheeses, more cheese on top – or even substituting different sauces in place of the pizza sauce. You can try Italian Sausage and Peppers spaghetti sauce, traditional marinara, tomato and basil…the sky is the limit! And you can easily make this vegetarian by eliminating the sausage and pepperoni! It’s a pretty versatile dish.
