I’m excited to share these tasty Pizza Sausage Rolls with you! I love pizza and like to eat it in different creative ways, like this French Bread Pizza Caprese or this Breakfast Pizza. These rolls take classic Italian sausage pizza ingredients and wrap them in my bagel dough. They’re perfect for appetizers, home school lunches, and dinner for the whole family. To save time, you can also use store bought pizza dough instead.

Are sausage rolls healthy?

Typically, sausage rolls aren’t the healthiest – that’s why I wanted to recreate them. The biggest culprit for fat and calories is usually the sausage, so I used Italian chicken sausage instead of pork. Chicken sausage is significantly lower in fat and calories. I also use my bagel dough, which is full of protein thanks to the non-fat Greek yogurt.

How to Make Pizza Sausage Rolls from Scratch

These baked sausage rolls are very easy to make from scratch.

1. Start with the Greek yogurt bagel dough recipe. If you want to use store bought pizza dough instead that’s perfectly fine too.
2. Divide the dough into four balls and roll into circles.
3. Now, it’s time to add the filling. Cover the dough with sauce and top with the cheese and then a halved sausage link.
4. Wrap the dough around the sausage and bake for 25-30 minutes at 400 degrees.

What goes with sausage rolls?

Italian sausage rolls make an easy lunch for your kids served with marinara sauce, for dipping. And of course, adults love pizza rolls too. If serving as a meal, pair with a big green salad, baked zucchini sticks or your favorite roasted veggies.

Note: I have not tested these with gluten-free flour, but I have made the bagels with cup4cup and had great success so I am sure it will work. You may have to add 5 more minutes to the bake time.

Pizza Sausage Rolls sliced.
Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 30 mins
Total: 50 mins
Yield: 4 servings
Serving Size: 1 roll


For bagel dough:

  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting, (5 oz in weight) use cup4cup for GF*
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup non-fat Greek yogurt, (should be thick) I recommend Stonyfield
  • 1 egg white, beaten (whole egg works fine too)
  • sesame seeds, for topping (optional)

For filling:

  • 2 raw chicken Italian sausage links, 3 oz total (halved lengthwise) I like Premio
  • 4 slices provolone or mozzarella cheese
  • 8 teaspoons pizza sauce or marinara
  • marinara sauce, for serving (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place parchment paper or a silpat on a baking sheet. If using parchment paper, spray with oil to avoid sticking.
  • In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt and whisk well.
  • Add the yogurt and mix with a fork or spatula until well combined (it will be sticky and look like small crumbles).
  • Lightly dust flour on a work surface and remove dough from the bowl, knead the dough a few times until dough is tacky, but not sticky, about 15 turns (it should not leave dough on your hand when you pull away). If it’s too sticky, add a few extra sprinkles of flour.
  • Divide in 4 equal balls.

  • Working with 1 ball at a time, lightly dust a rolling pin and a work surface and roll dough into a 5 ½” circle, about ¼” thick.

  • Spread 2 teaspoons pizza sauce down the middle of the circle, leaving about 1/2” border.
  • Lay 1 slice of cheese in the middle of the circle then top with 1/2 sausage link.

  • Carefully bring both sides of the dough up, wrap one side around the sausage then the other.

  • Press dough together so it’s sealed around the sausage and place it on the prepared sheet pan seam side-down.

  • Repeat with remaining dough, sauce, cheese and sausage.
  • Brush each with egg wash, top with sesame seeds, if using, and bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • Allow to cool for 5 minutes then slice into 6 pieces and serve.

  1. It’s near impossible to find raw chicken sausage where I live. Could you just sub cooked chicken sausage?  I can find plenty of them at TJ’s.

  2. My entire family loved this meal, which is rare with two picky kids. I even forgot to add the egg and it still turned out delicious. 

  3. These are awesome!  Felt like I was eating a calzone for I’m sure much less calories..Thank you! 

  4. These are absolutely delicious!  This will definitely go on our regular dinner rotation- a huge crowd pleaser!  Thank you Gina- this made my day! ☺️

  5. These were so good and husband approved! We all enjoyed and I have to say I’ve never seen my 6 year take so much time enjoying and savoring a meal before. I came across chicken bratwurst so I decided to try them and they were really flavorful! I sprinkled some everything bagel seasoning on a couple and really liked that. Will make these again and again!

  6. These were good, but if I make them again, I will remove the casing and cook them for a little bit first to get some of the grease out. The grease made our bread a little soggy. Love the dough recipe! I have used it several times.

  7. I made this for meal prep and it was awesome, especially reheated in the air fryer at 350 for 5 mins. I think next time I’ll make it with turkey pepperoni, and veggie folks, it’d be just fine stuffed with cheese, spinach and artichokes. Very adaptable. For breakfast maybe eggs and bacon? Loved it. 

  8. I made these tonight for our super bowl dinner. My husband said they were better than the pizza rolls he always gets at the fair.
