I am always looking for the perfect game day snack. These are easy to make, filling, and a different twist on the normal pizza. These sandwiches are highly addictive and if making for more than 3-4 people, I would recommend making more than one pan.
These have everything you love about pizza, but on a hawaiian roll. There is plenty of oozy cheese and cutting the pepperoni into 1/4’s will ensure that you get a piece of pepperoni in every bite. We used our favorite homemade pizza sauce for this. I always make a batch and keep it in the freezer and microwave it when we need it, feel free to use your favorite sauce!
The tops of the buns get nice and crispy in the last few minutes of baking and the butter and seasonings provide a great savory aspect on the sweet bun.

12 Hawaiian Rolls
3/4 cup of Pizza Sauce, your favorite or my homemade version
1/2 lb. of Pepperoni Slices, about 24, cut into 1/4’s
1 1/2-2 cups of Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
4 tablespoons of Unsalted Butter, melted
1/2 tablespoon of Onion Powder
1/2 tablespoon of Garlic Powder
1/2 tablespoon of Italian Seasoning
4-6 dashes of Worcestershire Sauce
First, pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.
Next, cut all of your hawaiian rolls in half.
Now, spread a little bit of pizza sauce on each side of the inside of the hawaiian rolls. Fill each roll with 2 pepperoni slices and layer with the cheese. Close the roll and place in a 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
Next, in a small bowl whisk together the butter, onion powder, garlic powder, italian seasoning, and worcestershire sauce. Pour over the top of the filled rolls.
Cover the pan with foil and bake for 12-15 minutes, until the cheese is fully melted. Remove the foil and bake for 2-5 more minutes until the tops get crispy and browned.
