Pizza rolls with ricotta cheese and bacon

Pizza rolls with ricotta cheese and bacon are tasty little stuffed rolls.
Easy and fast in fact will take only 20 minutes to make them. This is because I used a ready-made pizza roll but you can make your own pizza dough at home.
With a few simple ingredients we can make these delights. In fact, a ready-made pizza roll, grilled zucchini, bacon and ricotta cheese will suffice.
You can serve the pizza rolls as a snack, ideal as an appetizer or finger food for a party.
