TikTok pizza rolls are a throwback to childhood as these were easily the classic after-school snack that most kids enjoyed in our generation. This pizza roll recipe takes it from a basic frozen pizza roll to something more mature in flavor that both kids and adults will love!
Another day, another TikTok viral recipe. This time, TikTok Pizza rolls, which to be honest, are actually quite brilliant and in a sense, Totino’s way of relaunching.
Okay so, I’m not sure if kids in this generation were as obsessed with Totino’s pizza rolls as we were growing up. They were the iconic after-school snack that our parents would stash away in the freezer so we wouldn’t be ravenous after school or before they got home from work. I remember the commercials for these too. It was geared towards “doing it yourself” and how easy they were.
Well, fast forward to 2022 and Totino’s are all of a sudden trendy again — but like mature trendy. I don’t know if kids will actually want to eat pizza rolls this way but this garlic and cheese combination sounds like garlic bread on top of a pepperoni pizza and I’m 100% all for that. What kid wouldn’t be?!
What are pizza rolls?
It’s marketed as turning a pizza into a bite-sized pizza roll. Which truthfully, that’s exactly what it is! When I was growing up, they only had pepperoni flavor but now they have a bunch of different flavors — triple cheese, supreme, combination, pepperoni & bacon, triple meat, and even collabs like a buffalo chicken style.
