Mozzarella Beef Roll-Ups Recipe

This entree, a pizza-flavored roll-up is sure to be popular with everyone at your table. The sandwiches are easy to assemble because each tortilla is simply wrapped around a portion of hearty meat filling and a piece of string cheese.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (8 ounces) pizza sauce
  • 30 slices pepperoni
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 6 flour tortillas (10 inches), warmed
  • 6 pieces string cheese (1 ounce each)


  • 1. In a large skillet, cook the beef, green pepper and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the pizza sauce, pepperoni and oregano.
  • 2. Spoon about 1/2 cup beef mixture off-center on a tortilla; top with a piece of string cheese. Fold one side of tortilla over filling and roll up from the opposite side. Repeat.
  • 3. Place seam side down on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
    Freeze option: Cool filling before making wraps. Individually wrap in foil and freeze in a resealable plastic freezer bag. To use, partially thaw overnight in refrigerator. Reheat foil-wrapped wraps on a baking sheet in a preheated 350° oven until heated through. Or, to reheat one wrap, remove foil and rewrap in paper towel; place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high until heated through, turning once. Let stand 15 seconds. Yield: 6 servings.
