Homemade Pizza Rolls Recipe | Elijah's Xtreme
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 medium yellow onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
12oz bulk sweet Italian sausage
1 2oz piece of pepperoni, cut into 1/4 inch dice
1 cup pizza sausage
Elijah's Xtreme Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp granulated garlic
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
6oz shredded mozzarella (about 1 1/2 cups)
36 wonton wrapppers
1 large egg, beaten
Canola oil, for frying
Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and a pinch of salt and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes until lightly browned. Add the sausage and cook, crumbling into fine pieces. Stir in the pepperoni, pizza sauce, Elijah's Xtreme Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce, oregano, granulated garlic and pepper flakes. Remove to a large bowl and allow to cool slightly. Fold in the mozzarella and season to taste with additional salt, if needed.
Put 1 wonton wrapper down on a flat work surface. Put a teaspoon of filling in the middle of the upper half and another teaspoon in the middle of the lower half, making sure that the fillings are evenly spaced apart.
Brush egg wash all around the fillings and on the edges of the wrapper. Fold both sides of the wrapper over the fillings letter-fold style, overlapping them and being careful not to press down on the fillings. Turn the wrapper over so that the seal is on the bottom, then use your fingers to gently press down in between the fillings and around the edges. Use a sharp knife to cut the wrapper in half between the fillings. Use your fingers to tightly seal both ends of the pizza rolls. Put the filled pizza rolls on a large baking sheet. Repeat this process with the remaining wrappers and filling.
Fill a Dutch oven halfway with canola oil and heat to 350F. Set a cooling rack over a baking sheet. Fry the pizza rolls in batches until golden brown and crispy, about 4 minutes. Transfer to the cooling rack.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
