Edible Eyeballs

Prep Time: 30 min.
Bake Time: 1-19 min.
Servings: 6
Difficulty: Beginning

Spooky eyeballs looking at you. Fun to eat and easy to do!


6 Rhodes Dinner Rolls, dough thawed but still cold
1 cup pizza sauce
12 pepperoni slices
mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
green olives, with pimento
1 beaten egg


Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Flatten each roll into a 4-inch circle. Top each one with 1 pepperoni, a spoonful of pizza sauce, 3 cubes cheese and 1 more pepperoni.

Pull sides of the roll up over the fillings and pinch together securely to seal.

Place in a sprayed muffin tin, seam side down. Brush each one with egg.

Bake at 350 degrees F 15-20 minutes or until nicely browned. Remove from pan and cool slightly.

With a knife, pierce the top of the eyeball slightly and twist the knife to make a small hole. Place the green olive with pimento into the hole to make an eyeball.

Place some pizza sauce in a small squeeze bottle to draw bloodshot veins on each eye.

Serve with more pizza sauce for dipping, if desired.

    Can you make the edible eye balls a head of time?

      Thank you for your question! You could make these a day or two ahead of time. I wouldn’t add the olive or the pizza sauce veins on the outside of the eyeball until you serve them. I would refrigerate them and reheat them in a warm oven. Enjoy!

    I like them better with black olives for eyes, or a round cut from canned roasted red pepper.
