Skewer some pizza rolls and veggies, and you've got a great excuse to grill out tonight!
When one is hungry, pizza is always a good option. Bite-sized pizza? Some might say even better.
When you look at the back of a Totino’s bag of pizza rolls, it has a bunch of different preparation methods. One method that is definitely not on the bag is to grill these suckers.
While you absolutely can just toss them directly on a hot grill with great success, I prefer to make little Grilled Pizza Roll Kabobs with mine.
To be honest, this is barely a recipe. There are really only three ingredients for the kabobs!
But the trick is in the execution. For starters, it’s important that your pizza rolls are very frozen. It would be easier to stab them with a skewer if they were thawed a bit, but you want them frozen when they hit the grill or the filling will just explode out of them.
The other trick with making these is how you place them on the skewers. While you might be tempted to stab them through the middle, it’s actually much better to try to work the skewer in lengthwise.
You can alternate pizza rolls with peppers like so ...
Make all your kabobs before throwing them on the grill. It helps to have thin metal skewers which will pierce the pizza roll without cracking the crust. A wood or bamboo skewer might just make a big mess.
Each kabob should fit five pizza rolls.
You don’t want the grill to be blazing hot. Somewhere in the medium temperature range is best. Grill them for 4-5 minutes on the first side, give them a flip, and then 3-4 minutes on the second side.
If they start exploding at all, they are more than done!
The pizza rolls will need to cool for a bit before biting in, as the center cheese filling will be near-molten.
Serve them with your favorite pizza or marinara sauce and chow down!
