Pizza Logs & Apple Pie Logs

"Pizza logs” are mozzarella cheese in an egg roll wrapper; some pizza logs also have pepperoni. “Pizza Logs” has been cited in print since 1970, when it was sold by Jeno’s (now called Totino’s Pizza Rolls).

Finger Food Products, Inc. was founded in Niagara Falls, New York, and trademarked its “Original Pizza Logs” with a first use date of December 31, 1992. The company trademarked “Original Apple Pie Logs” with a first use date of August 4, 2017. The apple pie logs have apple pie ingredients in an egg roll wrapper, and the product is similar to an apple turnover.

Pizza logs are often served with marinara sauce. Apple pie logs are often dusted with confectioners’ sugar and served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a caramel drizzle.

Pizza logs are served in many Buffalo, New York restaurants, but the product is largely unknown outside of Western New York. “There is a http://www.buffalofoods.com where you can order your favorite buffalo foods. I also learned pizza logs are a WNY creation #mindblown” was posted on Twitter by Mac Cappuccino on August 10, 2011. “I had no idea Pizza logs were invented in buffalo, and that they are really not common in many other places. Mind blown” was posted on Twitter by Mike Zeller on December 24, 2018.


Original Pizza Logs—Our Story
Finger Food Products, Inc. is the proud maker of Original Pizza Logs.  Finger Food Products has been serving the western New York area for more than 25 years. Founded in Niagara Falls, New York, the company has been a staple in the community and Original Pizza Logs have been a household name for more than a quarter century.

11 March 1970, The Daily Herald (Provo, UT), pg. 16 ad:
Pizza Logs
Jeno’s Frozen
10-oz. Pkg. 98c
(Safeway supermarket.—ed.)

5 November 1970, Hartford (CT) Courant, pg. 53 ad:
FROZEN REGULAR or SAUSAGE
Jeno’s Pizza Logs 10-oz. pkg. 79c
(A&P supermarket.—ed.)

27 October 1999, The Courier-News (Bridgewater, NJ), “Trade show serves up a slice of the pizza life” by Jerry Schwartz (The Associated Press), pg. A-3, cols. 3-4:
Which brings us to the Original Pizza Log, which is basically pizza in an egg-roll wrapper.

At the moment, this is mostly a Western New York delicacy. But Russ Klass of Finger Food Products has high hopes for the Original Pizza Log, especially for the version that contains roasted peppers.

Are “pizza logs” a western NY thing? Because everyone in Pittsburgh calls them pepperoni rolls and that’s just wrong.
