That’s right! Fried. Pizza. Wontons. They’re crunchy, filled with your favorite pizza toppings, and flavored with Dan-O’s Seasoning! These wontons were inspired by a Louisville Pizza joint called Pizza Donisi’s which serves something similar to these. They do theirs for a living, so they are really good at making them... but ours can be the next best thing, right?
Also, we use egg roll wrappers. So when you’re wondering about the nomenclature, here is the scoop: you can put anything in a wonton. Egg rolls, however, are more specific… I think. So these are wontons! And you dip them in marinara, and they’re flavored with Dan-O’s Seasoning. Like, we should have been making these for years.
For the filling, I used pepperoni, Spicy Dan-O’s Seasoned Italian sausage, and mozzarella. For the mozzarella, I found these “mozzarella pearls”, which are essentially little balls of mozzarella. This means I didn’t have to cut mozzarella or use the lame pre-grated kind. Maybe next time I’ll cut some off a mozz log because it wasn’t the easiest rolling these pearls… into my wontons.
If you’ve never rolled an egg-roll, I recommend watching some videos because it would be hard to explain through words. But it’s really easy! And when you’re done… you’ll have crunchy little spicy pizza wontons. They’re the perfect game day snack or addition to your cheat night. You could definitely bake these or air fry them, but they won’t be as crunchy so I say bail on that.
So here you go! A spicy Dan-O’s pizza wontons recipe that will make you a game-day legend. Enjoy!
