Pepperoni Pizza Lasagna Rolls

"I switched this up a bit and made it like a regular lasagna because it was easier. I also added a jar of alfredo on top of it all for tomato layers and alfredo layers. This is hard to stop eating. Recipe courtesy of Infinite Passion. Serving size is estimated."

  • In a large pan over medium heat, heat the butter and olive oil until the butter is melted.
  • Add the garlic and onion and saute until tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in tomatoes, tomato paste, basil, oregano, sugar, and red pepper flakes.
  • Bring the sauce to a boil and then reduce heat to low. Place a cover on the pan, tilted slightly to let some steam out.

  • Simmer for 15 minutes. Cool slightly. With an immersion blender, carefully blend until sauce has desired texture. (I skipped this part because i like chunky sauce).
  • Preheat oven to 350. Cook noodles according to package directions. Once cooked, drain and rinse with cold water.
  • Spread 1/2 cup to 1 cup pizza sauce in bottom of pan.
  • Prepare the filling by mixing beaten egg, ricotta cheese (I used cottage cheese instead), a cup of mozzarella, 1/2 c grated parmesan cheese, parsley, and pepper until well combined.
  • To prepare lasagna rolls, lay out one lasagna noodle and spread it with about 2 tablespoons of cheese filling.
  • Lay out 5 to 6 pepperoni on top of cheese filling. Roll up each noodle starting at one of the short ends.
  • Place in prepared baking dish, seam down. Repeat until all noodles have been filled and rolled. Pour 1 and 1/2 cups pizza sauce over rolls and top with 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup parmesan cheese.
  • Cover baking dish with foil and bake for 45 to 50 minutes (remove foil last 10 to 15 minutes) or until hot and cheese is melted. (I skipped the foil and found it unnecessary) Let stand 10 minutes prior to serving.

  1. I couldn't wait to try this when I saw it first posted! I don't like regular lasagna since I'm not a fan of hamburger meat, so I am always on the lookout for a different take on it. This did not disappoint! I was a little confused on the directions since it said to add sugar, but it was not listed as an ingredient. I did add a teaspoon of white sugar since we prefer a sweeter sauce. We also prefer a smooth, not chunky sauce, so I emulsified it in my Nutri Bullet. It came out rich and absolutely delicious! I will double and use the sauce recipe again the next time I make pizza. I prepared this as "roll-ups". It was definitely time consuming, but I prepared it earlier in the day and just popped it in the oven an hour before dinner. I can imagine this would be a great kid-friendly dish! Thanks so much for this fun and different recipe!!! We can't wait until leftovers tomorrow night!


I love to try new recipes, and this is a wonderful site to find new additions. I rarely make the same thing twice because it's so much fun to try something different. My life long dream is to travel the world and eat my way around it.
