Making Pizza Scrolls With The Kids

Okay, so it's the pointy end of the holidays and if you're anything like me, you're scratching for ways to keep the kids entertained. Mine are actually at the Grampies today, thank the Lord as this mumma was in desperate need of a break.

This is such a fun (and delicious) activity to pass a lazy hour or so. We made these for lunch and devoured them at home but they'd be equally as wonderful to pack up for a picnic in the warm winter sun.

We mixed the toppings up, using only what we had on hand- some grated zucchini, tinned pineapple, tomato paste, fresh herbs from the garden etc.

  • 2 cups Self-raising Flour
  • 50 g Butter, chopped
  • 2/3 cup Milk
  • 1/2 cup Tomato & Basil Pasta Sauce
  • 50 g Shaved Salami, chopped
  • 50 g Shaved Ham, chopped
  • 1 small Red Capsicum, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups Shredded Pizza Cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Place flour and butter in a food processor. Process until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Add milk. Process until soft dough just forms. Knead dough on lightly floured surface. Using a rolling pin, roll dough out to form a 30cm x 40cm rectangle.
  3. Spread pasta sauce over dough. Sprinkle with salami, ham, capsicum and cheese. Cut dough in half to make 2 long rectangles (each 15cm x 40cm). Starting at long sides, roll dough tightly into a sausage. Using a serrated knife, cut each roll carefully into 12 even slices. Place slices, just touching, on prepared tray. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

  1. I like the idea of putting them all together in one pan. I have always squashed them flat after they are cut but I like the idea of a tear and share style pizza roll.

  2. Love this! Filing it away for use later this week...

  3. That is awesome. I have been wanting to make these with the kids.

  4. Yum! I think we're going to have to give these a go! x
