Pizza Egg Rolls

My husband and kids love these very untraditional egg rolls. Their crisp wrappers and flavorful pizza filling make them taste so good!

    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.

    These egg rolls are the bomb! You can easily swap out ingredients to make to your liking or to use things on 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 I find it easier and less waste to do them in the electric skillet. Enjoy!!

    OMG! These were sooooo good. People were raving about them all night. They could not get enough of them. I doubled the recipe, they were the first appetizer to go. I made the filling in advance. I filled and rolled them about 30 - 45 minutes before I fried them, that was not a good idea. The egg rolls got soggy and started to fall apart in the deep fryer. So future note, don't roll until you are ready to fry. I still included them on my platter, and even the ones with big holes in them disappeared. I would deff make over and over again. The word my Nieces boyfriend used was "genus"!

    We made this as part of our appetizer night and the family loved them. They heated up great for leftovers. Wouldn't change anything on the recipe.

    The flavors are simple, but great. These are not that easy to fry without making a mess though. However, the mess is worth it. If you have the means to fry them outside that's the way to go.

    I just a 8oz of Pepperoni just cut it up into bit size pieces instead of sausage. I did add some Galic power about 1 teaspoon and 1/2 teaspoon of basil. I also added onions. Everyone loved them and wanted the recipe.

    This recipe is GREAT for my son's.......they come home from school, H.S. and College, VERY HUNGRY! I have these made up and in freezer. MUCH better than store bought, and since my boys are in all kinds of sports, we don't worry about callories....they need ALL they can get! I wouldn't eat these regularly, just like pizza. But, for healthy kids, its GREAT!
