Recipe: Sausage and Pepperoni Roll

Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza Roll is a family favorite recipe from Walking on Sunshine Recipes.

One of my family's favorite meals is Sausage and Pepperoni Roll.  I am sharing this recipe with you because it's such a delicious and fun meal for your family. It also makes a great dish to add to your get-together's with family and friends. 

After the long winter we all have experienced, I know you must be looking forward to parties and barbecues and this sausage roll would be a great addition to any buffet table.

Sausage and Pepperoni Roll

You can make this recipe so many different ways.  You add ricotta cheese too and make it more like a calzone.  You can add sliced cold cuts in place of the crumbled sausage.  Either way, you're family is going to enjoy this recipe.  

Roll out your pizza dough.

Add your cooked sausage, peppers and onions. 

Add your pepperoni.

Add the mozzarella cheese.

Beginning at one end, start rolling your sausage roll.

Now you can just place your sausage roll on a greased cookie sheet and let rise for about 30 - 60 minutes, brush with and egg wash and bake in a 425 degree oven until golden brown.

We like to serve homemade tomato sauce alongside to dip the sausage roll in while eating.

This is an old family recipe that my mother made for us growing up and I have adapted to make for my family.


  • 1 pound Italian sausage links; sweet and hot
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup pepperoni slices
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1 clove garlic; finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 recipe pizza dough
  • 1 egg mixed with 1 tablespoon water for an egg wash


  1. Remove the sausage from the casings.  
  2. In a large skillet, cook the sausage over medium heat, breaking it up using the back of a fork. 
  3. Add the onions, peppers and garlic and cook until the sausage is no longer pink and cooked through.  Add the  Italian seasoning. 
  4. Remove from heat and allow to cool while you prepare the pizza dough. 
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pizza dough into a large rectangle shape. 
  6. Spread the slightly cooled sausage and onion mixture over the top of the pizza dough to within 1/2 inch of the edges. 
  7. Add the pepperoni slices on top of the sausage mixture. 
  8. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on top. 
  9. Add the grated mozzarella cheese on top. 
  10. Starting with one end, roll up the pizza dough jelly-roll style.  Pinch the seams together to seal and arrange seam side down on a baking tray that's been lined with parchment paper.  You can shape the sausage roll into a crescent shape if you want to or you can place the sausage roll into a bundt pan that's been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. 
  11. Cover the sausage roll with a clean dish towel and allow it to rise for around 30 minutes.  
  12. Brush with the egg wash right before baking. 
  13. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown. 
  14. Serve with homemade tomato sauce for dipping. 


You want the sausage and onion mixture to cool slightly before spreading on top of the pizza dough otherwise the pizza dough will get too warm and you will not be able to roll the sausage roll correctly.
