Toss mozzarella, pepperoni and green pepper together in a small bowl. Working with four rectangles at a time, brush each with water and two teaspoons of the cheese, pepperoni and pepper in the middle of the bottom half of each wrapper, followed by a 1/2 teaspoon of pepperoni and a few pieces of green pepper.

Once all the pizza rolls are formed, work in batches to fry until golden brown, about 1 minute per side. Drain on paper towels. Serve with leftover marinara.
