And the best part? Pepperoni Meatball Roll Ups are super easy to make. You can even use frozen meatballs, or try these bulk homemade meatballs that we make all the time and freeze ahead. Serve them up with some marinara sauce for dipping, and you’ve got yourself a snack that’s sure to please everyone. So go ahead and give them a try. Your taste buds (and your kids) will thank you!

The roll ups are customizable as well. Kids love pizza flavors, but you could use sausage instead of pepperoni, or even go with lunch meat. The possibilities are up to you. Different cheeses, different meats, or even cheese only is a great option. And homemade Italian seasoning makes them even more pizza-y.

They last in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days, but they are best fresh. If you have to reheat them, cover them in foil and heat them at 350 in the oven until they are melty again. You can prepare them up to 2 hours ahead of your serving time. But I recommend cooking them right before eating.
