Yummy pizza scrolls


Here is a perfect meal for you to try. What kid doesn’t like pizza? I wanted to give this recipe a try as it has two elements that Miss F would like. First of all it tastes like pizza, smells like pizza and has cheese. Secondly she could help me make it. Ding, ding, ding we have a winner. 

Needless to say that this was a hit with all of us. Both girls loved it and I may have eaten one or three as well. They taste just like a pizza but are a lot softer, so they are great for the little ones with their sensitive teeth. Give this one a go. We had leftovers for lunch the next day and they were just as good after being warmed up in the microwave.  

PIZZA SCROLLS

PREP TIME
20mins

COOKING TIME
30 mins

INGREDIENTS
2 cups self-raising flour
1 tablespoon caster sugar
30g butter
¾ cup milk
¼ cup tomato paste
2 teaspoons Italian herbs
100g ham or bacon
1 red capsicum
¼ cup of pineapple (controversial I know)
2 cups coarsely grated tasty cheese

METHOD
1. Preheat oven to 180 and grease a roasting tin.
2. Place flour and sugar; use fingers to rub the butter into the flour until the flour looks like breadcrumbs. Stir in the milk to create a soft, sticky dough.  Knead dough lightly on a flour surface. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough to form a 30cm x 40com rectangle. 
3. Spread the tomato paste all over the base. Sprinkle the herbs around evenly; top with ham, capsicum, pineapple and cheese.
4. Starting from one of the long sides, roll the dough tightly and trim the edges. Using a serrated knife, cut the roll carefully into 12 even slices. Place the slices, cut side up in a single layer in your roasting tin. 
5. Bake scrolls uncovered for about 30mins or until lightly browned.

  2. Pizzas are the perfect indulgence for family gatherings and celebrations with friends. Additionally, these are good when having “me time.” As expected, the pizzas in these photos are scrumptious! Hmm, I assume you’ve already tried this at home, Sascha. And I’m sure your kids loved it! ;)

    1. Leonel, these are very tasty. I'm actually planning on making them for my daughters 3rd birthday party. I'm going to make mini versions and put them on a little stick. Fingers crossed they will be a success.

      Thanks for your lovely comments.

  3. These have just come out of the oven and are so delicious! I amended the recipe slightly so added 1 1/2 cups of white self raising flour and 1/2 cup of wholemeal self raising flour, used champignons instead of pineapple (as hubby doesn't like pineapple) and roasted red capsicums! Mmmmm I hope my 18 month old will enjoy and not throw on the floor!!
