Pizza scrolls

School is back next week, so why not prepare your lunchboxes ahead of time with these easy, freezable lunchbox recipes?

These freezer-friendly pizza friendly pizza scrolls and light and fluffy using an easy 30 minute dough (including rest time). Is it absoutely worth making your own dough for the pillowy, comforting results, but frozen pastry will work too.

The rolls have a soft texture with yummy melted cheese and a tangy tomato sauce. I used ham in this recipe, but feel free to add shaved chicken, turkey, pepperoni, or whatever your little one loves.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Mix wet ingredients

    Mix water, honey and olive oil together in a jug or bowl.

  2. Mix dry ingredients

    In a separate large bowl, mix instant yeast and flour together.

  3. Knead dough and rest

    Pour water mix in with your flour mix and stir with a wooden spoon, then mix with your hands until a dough forms. Knead for 5 minutes (flour your kitchen bench with bread or plain/all-purpose flour as needed). Place a teatowel over your bowl and rest for 15 minutes.

  4. Prepare other ingredients

    While your dough is resting, grate your cheese and cut your ham.

  5. Preheat oven

    Preheat your oven to 200C (fan-forced).

  6. Cut and roll dough

    Once rested (using the same floured surface to prevent sticking), cut your dough in half, then roll out each piece into a rough rectangle shape, about 3-4mm thick.

  7. Add toppings

    Cover each rectangle in pizza sauce, one cup of ham and one cup of grated mozzarella.

  8. Roll and cut

    Roll-up, pinching a seam to join, and cut into 2.5cm pieces. 

  9. Top with cheese and bake

    Place on a lined baking tray, and top with remaining mozzarella. Bake at 200C fan-forced for 20-25 minutes, or until tops are melting and starting to turn golden brown.

  10. Serve

    Serve warm - you can also heat up the remaining pizza sauce to dip into the rolls.

    Will it work with normal flour?

      Hi Yasmin! It will definitely work, however bread flour usually results in a slighlty better rise. You can find it at your local supermarket (but feel free to use plain/all-purpose flour). Thanks for your comment, and good luck!

    How do you freeze and then de frost these so they are still soft?

      Hi Kirrily. The best way to keep defrosted bread soft is to reheat in the micorwave for 20-30 seconds (for a single roll). You can also serve with warmed up pizza sauce. They are still okay to eat if you pop them in a lunchbox in the morning – they will be defrosted by lunch time. All the best and thanks for commenting.

      Hi Helen. Thanks for your comment. I use Lighthouse bread flour, available from Woolworths. Feel free to use plain/all-purpose flour, if you can’t find it. Enjoy!

    Look delish! Could you make it without honey? Would there be an alternative?

      Hi Cherisse! Thanks for your comment. You can also use sugar, or maple syrup. It just needs a ‘sugar’ (either natural, or refined). Hope this helps!

    So, I made these … the rolls weren’t working out for me, I think I cut them too big I’m not sure … I didn’t have time to keep making them with the other half and instead I made a pizza with the other half …. The rolls burned a little I have 3 kids under 4 and couldn’t get to them on time 🙁 … however the pizza came out great, also I think my over is strong because the pizza was done in 15 minutes .. thank you so much I will be trying the rolls again because they look so good in your pic !
