Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza Rolls
Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza Rolls bake up tender and ultra tasty, a fun riff on traditional pizza!
The Vikings ‘Minnesota Miracle’ had most all of us here in Minnesota in a happy, hopeful state of mind last week. Anticipating the upcoming NFC Championship Game, with a shot to play in this year’s Super Bowl – in our very own shiny new USBank Stadium – our state was an upbeat lot.
Miracle turned to misery in Sunday’s loss to the Eagles. Super Bowl LII dreams vanished for those wearing Minnesota purple and gold, their season officially over.
We’ll always remember this year, with our hometown Vikings being thiiiiiiiis close to playing in the Super Bowl game on their home field. It would have been a history-maker, as this scenario has never happened before.
But we’re moving on.
Minnesota still plans to enjoy this event on our home turf. An estimated 1 million people will be visiting the Twin Cities for the Super Bowl game and Super Bowl LIVE, the ten days of planned activities leading up to the big event. It’s gonna be big. It’s gonna be fun.
And it promises to be delicious with these tender, tasty swirls of Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza Rolls. This recipe has been a HUGE hit with my family. I’m certain it’s going to be a frequent request for years to come!

Most of our household are fans of the bacon cheeseburger. So I knew the overall flavor theme for these pizza rolls was going to be a winner. Even our youngest, who is not so fond of cheeseburgers, fell for these fun swirls.
Just look at those pretties.
Who could resist them?
There’s always a bag of Rhodes frozen yeast dinner rolls in our freezer. Simply because we enjoy a quick and easy caramel roll monkey bread recipe passed down from a co-worker friend many, many years ago.
And we now have these dinner rolls to thank for the ease and tastiness of the dough used in this bacon cheeseburger pizza rolls recipe.
The concept here is easy.
Individual thawed dinner rolls are combined to form one larger ball of dough. That dough ball is then rolled out into a rectangle and topped with pizza sauce and bacon cheeseburger goodies.
The rectangle is rolled up, jelly roll style, and then sliced into rounds and baked.
In the oven, the dough puffs up gloriously from the heat, showing off pretty swirls of pizza toppings tucked inside.
Don’t be surprised if you find yourself camped outside the oven window, watching the pizza rolls bake. This is one of those recipes that make being in the kitchen so much fun!

The dough bakes up beautifully, perfectly.
And the result is a pan full of tidy individual packages of savory, irresistible “mini pizzas”.
These pizza rolls make a great main dish, served alongside a fresh salad. And, of course, they fit in nicely on our list of appetizer recipes.
My family gets very excited when they see the pan of bacon cheeseburger pizza rolls come out of the oven.
And rightfully so.
Pizza Night is always a favorite dinner event at our house. And with this version, it’s extra fun!
Our whole family recommends extra pizza sauce for dipping. And Blake and I, dill pickle fans through and through, suggest a few extra dill pickle slices on the side as well.
