Reviews for Pizza Egg Rolls
"My daughter said that these tasted like I took a Pizza Hut pizza and rolled it up into an egg roll. My husband declared this recipe a 'keeper'. I did add a little ham & pepperoni to make up for the fact that I didn't have the full amount of Italian sausage."
"Delicious! We loved the fresh combination of flavors in the crispy wrappers."
"The kids request this for birthday dinners!"
"These egg rolls are the bomb! You can easily swap out ingredients to make to your liking or to use things on hand...so good! Note: I fry mine in an electric fry pan/skillet and just turn them a few times till done. When I did them in the deep fryer, they "leaked" and made the oil nasty...so I find it easier and less waste to do them in the electric skillet. Enjoy!!"
