  • 1 lb pizza dough store-bought or homemade
  • 3 strips bacon cut in half & baked at 400F for 10 min, finely chopped
  • 6 mozzarella sticks
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese finely grated, more if desired
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil finely chopped
  • 1 egg for egg wash
  • everything but the bagel seasoning to sprinkle on top, to taste
  • pizza sauce or marinara sauce, for serving


  • First, preheat your oven to 400F and line baking sheet with parchment or foil paper. Place 3 cut bacon strips on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until bacon is crispy. Next, remove bacon onto a plate lined with paper towel and let it cool. After chop it into small pieces and set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 450F and line baking sheet with parchment paper and spray it with oil or butter. Then place a bowl or a cup in the middle to help us create a wreath shape.
  • Next, cut 6 cheese sticks into 30 pieces. Then divide the pizza dough in half, then in half again, and in half, creating 30 balls about 2 inches wide.
  • After, wrap each cheese with pizza dough and pinch the ends to seal the ball, placing balls seal side down on a baking sheet. Arrange cheese pizza rolls around the plate creating a wreath. Remove the plate off the baking sheet, we don't need it anymore.
  • Now, lets make an egg wash for our pizza wreath. Whisk 1 egg with 1 tablespoon of water in a small mixing bowl, then brush this mixture over the dough. Sprinkle everything but the bagel seasoning, to taste over the top.
  • Bake at 450F for about 15-20 minutes or until golden color. Meanwhile, melt 2 tablespoons of butter and when pizza rolls are done baking, immediately brush it over them.
  • Finally, sprinkle parmesan cheese, bacon pieces and freshly chopped basil over the top and place a small bowl of pizza sauce in the middle. Grab a stuffed pizza roll and dip it in pizza sauce. Enjoy!
