I consider myself a pizza roll aficionado (or just pizzas in general), having tried every brand and flavor under the sun. But, unfortunately, I’ve noticed gluten-free pizza rolls don’t seem to cut it. Either the texture is off, or the filling isn’t right. 

Since I firmly believe being gluten free should not mean sacrificing your favorite snacks (like gluten free biscotti and gluten free cinnamon rolls), I decided to try my hand at making gluten free pizza bites. Not to toot my own horn, but they tick all the boxes when it comes to flavor and texture.

Recipe highlights

  • Perfect texture and flavor. Like my air fryer pizza rolls, the crust is fluffy and chewy, and the cheesy, saucy center explodes with flavor in every bite.  
  • Fun to customize. I think we can all agree the best part about pizza is getting to customize it with our favorite toppings. Well, these pizza rolls are no different. 
  • Ready in minutes. Once you make the dough, the rest of this recipe moves quickly. You’ll have these pizza rolls ready and on the table in 20 minutes or less. 
  • Easy to make ahead. Short on time? Make the pizza rolls ahead of time and store them in the fridge until you’re ready to bake. 

What we love most about this recipe is what a nostalgic treat it is. They’re the perfect after-school snack for kids, and since they’re WAY healthier than store-bought pizza rolls, I can feel good about sharing them with my family.

Ingredients needed

You’ll only need a handful of ingredients to make these homemade pizza rolls, and most of them can be swapped or substituted. Here’s exactly what you will need:

  • Gluten-free pizza dough. Use a gluten free pizza dough or make my 2-ingredient pizza dough with gluten free self-rising flour.
  • Tomato sauce. I love using homemade pizza sauce since it’s so simple to make, but your favorite store-bought sauce will work as well. 
  • Pizza toppings. I used mushrooms, olives, and diced peppers, but feel free to use whatever toppings you enjoy. I’ll give some ideas later on. 
  • Shredded cheese. I used mozzarella cheese, but use whatever dairy or dairy-free cheese you prefer. 
  • Herbs. Like an Italian herb blend, basil, and or oregano.
  • Milk or egg. Optional, but I like to brush the rolls with milk or egg wash to give the crust a golden brown color.
  • Salt. To taste.

How to make gluten free pizza rolls

Step 1- Prep work. Preheat the oven to 350F/180C and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. 

Step 2- Roll out the dough. In a large bowl or stand mixer, prepare the 2-ingredient pizza dough. Then, roll the dough into a rectangular shape, around 12 inches by 6 inches. 

Step 3- Add fillings. Spread the tomato sauce in an even layer over the dough, leaving half an inch of dough around the sides. Top with cheese, fillings, and herbs. 

Step 4- Shape. Pick up two corners of the longest side of the dough. Gently roll it all the way up. Using a sharp knife, slice the dough into 12-16 rectangles. Place the pieces of pizza roll onto the lined pan. If desired, whisk an egg and brush the tops and sides with egg wash or milk. 

Step 5- Bake. Bake the rolls for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the rolls from the oven and sprinkle them with extra herbs and salt before serving.

Recipe tips

  • Make them vegan. Use coconut yogurt to make the pizza dough and use vegan-friendly fillings. 
  • Use a floured surface. When it’s time to roll out the dough, use a lightly floured surface and save yourself a sticky situation.
  • Cut the carbs. Use my keto pizza dough instead.
  • Avoid overfilling the rolls. Otherwise, they’ll turn out soggy and make a mess.

Flavor variations

Promised and delivered! Here are some of my favorite flavor combinations:

  • Hawaiian- Add pineapple chunks and diced ham. 
  • Pepperoni- Layer thinly sliced pepperoni pieces and double the cheese.
  • Meat lovers- Pepperoni, ham, bacon, and shredded chicken. Consider using barbecue sauce in place of marinara sauce. 
  • Cheese lovers- Double the cheese and use a mixture of mozzarella, parmesan, and cheddar. 

Feel free to switch up the sauces, too, and give my sundried tomato pesto, sugo, or pomodoro sauce a try. 

Storage instructions

To store: Leftover pizza rolls can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container. They will keep well for up to 1 week.   

To freeze: Place the cooled pizza rolls in a freezer bag and store in the freezer for up to 6 months. 

Reheating: Transfer leftover pizza rolls to an oven set to 325F and bake for 8-10 minutes or until fully reheated. Alternatively, they can be reheated in an air fryer set to 350F for 5-6 minutes or in a toaster oven.

More recipes using 2-ingredient dough to try

Each of these recipes can be made gluten free by using gluten free self-rising flour to make the dough!

  • Soft pretzels– Pillowy on the inside, salty and crusted on the outside.
  • Naan– Way healthier than traditional naan, but just as versatile.
  • Bagels– Made with no yeast and no fancy kitchen gadgets required.
  • Flatbread– Perfect for wraps, but my family loves them as flatbread pizzas!
