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.  



30 mins

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

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. 


  1. These were absolutely declicious! They tasted just like pizzas from Bakers Delight! I think they will become a regular around our place :)

  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!!
