Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Servings 24 Rolls


  • Small Mixing Bowl for Egg wash
  • Baking Sheet for Oven Baking
  • Air Fryer for Air Fryer method
  • Rolling Pin
  • Parchment Paper


  • 1 tube Pizza Dough - 13.8 ounces
  • 24 Sausages Links – Cooked - cocktail sized
  • 5 cups Water
  • ¼ cup Baking Soda
  • 1 Lg. Egg - room temp, beaten
  • 1 tsp. Kosher Salt
  • Cheese Sauce - for dipping


  • Remove pizza dough from the package and place on a cutting board. Using a rolling pin, roll into a rectangle, ¼" thick. Cut in half lengthwise using a pizza cutter. Then, cross-cut each rectangle into 12, 1" wide strips – 24 strips in total.
  • Place a sausage on each strip. Tightly roll the dough around each, letting the link stick out a bit on each end.
  • In a medium pot, bring the water to a light boil. Add the baking soda and stir until dissolved.
  • Working in batches of 3-4, add the rolls and boil for 20-30 seconds. Use a slotted spoon to remove.


  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Place boiled rolls on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Use a pastry brush to brush the outside of each with the beaten egg. Sprinkle each evenly with salt.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the dough is golden brown.


  • Perheat Air Fryer to 375°F.
  • Remove boiled rolls, brush with egg wash, and sprinkle with salt.
  • Place boiled rolls into a parchment-lined fryer basket.
  • Bake for 4-6 minutes, or until the dough is golden brown. Work in batches if necessary.
  • Serve with cheese sauce for dipping.


For extra zing, lay a very narrow strip of Pepper Jack Cheese down the center of each dough strip just before rolling, making sure it is completely sealed inside the roll before boiling.
