Everyone loves pizza. Have you tried pizza rolls? These rolls taste exactly as regular pizza but the only difference is that it comes in rolls with a filling of your choice. They are practically great for parties, snack or lunch box.
Home made rolls give you the ability to choose what goes into them so no preservatives or mystery ingredients. They also make a wonderful appetizer, perfect for parties or any occasion.
Mine is very spicy since my kids love them but you can omit the chili paste altogether if you're serving small kid. For filling you can opt for mushroom, bell pepper, olives, pineapple, pepperoni, ham just to name a few but for vegetarian version just minus the meat. These are best pizza roll ever!
