This scrumptious sourdough pizza rolls recipe will certainly satiate your cravings.

  • Total Time: 6 hrs 30 mins
  • Yield: 10 rolls 1x



For the dough

  • 450g bread flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 100g active sourdough starter
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 egg
  • 125ml milk
  • 130ml water
  • melted butter or olive oil to brush on top

For the filling

  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • 1 pack of mozzarella pieces
  • chopped basil
  • 1/4 cup spicy pepperoni


  1. Combine milk with water, then mix the sourdough starter and sugar in it, until it has dissolved.
  2. Place your bread flour, and salt into the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the egg, then start mixing on low speed using the dough hook attachment. Alternatively, you could choose to mix the ingredients with your hands.
  3. Add the milk and water mixture until everything is well incorporated. If the mixture is too dry, simply add some more water.
  4. Knead the dough until you’re left with a well-hydrated dough.
  5. Add some melted butter and mix on low speed.
  6. Knead for another 2-3 minutes, gathering any remains that have become stuck to the bowl.
  7. Once the dough is stretchy, firm, and begins to release from the sides, then transfer it to a floured surface.
  8. Continue to knead the dough by hand, until it’s nice and smooth.
  9. Place the dough into a lightly greased bowl. Then cover and place in a warm place for 3-4 hours to bulk ferment.
  10. Once the dough has bulked sufficiently, punch down the dough, and shape it into a ball. Then place the dough into an airtight container, and refrigerate overnight, if you wish to bake in the morning.
  11. If you wish to bake on the same day, then continue with the next step.
  12. Remove the dough from the fridge, and let it come to room temperature, or until it’s soft enough to handle.
  13. Roll the dough out to a 12-inch by 20-inch rectangle.
  14. Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce or tomato sauce on the rectangular dough.
  15. Add some cheese and pepperoni, then roll the dough starting from the long side.
  16. Pinch the seam and use a sharp knife to cut the pizza roll into 10 equal pieces.
  17. Arrange the rolls onto a well-oiled baking dish, leaving enough space for the rolls to expand.
  18. Cover the dish loosely, and place them in a warm area to proof. The rolls should double in size after 3-4 hours.
  19. Preheat the oven to 425F, and place an oven rack in the center of the oven.
  20. Once the rolls have been proofed, spray them with some water, and place them in the preheated oven. Bake them for 15 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 400 degrees F, and continue to bake for 15 minutes, until golden brown and oozing with gooey cheese.
  21. Brush them lightly with melted butter and enjoy.


  • Remember to include any other topping ingredients you love. And if you don’t like pepperoni, you can certainly substitute it with something else, i.e., sausage, or turkey bacon.
