Lunch Box: Pizza Scrolls Recipe

Pizza Scrolls Recipe - great for the lunchbox - on beafunmum.com

These pizza scrolls are the best. The kids and the husband LOVE then. I’ve never had a fail batch.  Sometimes, I do a double batch and pop them in the freezer for school lunches. 

Pizza Scrolls Recipe

Dough Ingredients

310 g Luke warm water (1  1/3 cups)
1 sachet dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
510 g plain flour (3  1/2 cups)
30 g extra virgin olive oil (3 tablespoons)


Tomato Sauce
200 grams Bacon bits
Grated cheese

Dough Method (for Thermomix)

1. Add ingredients into the bowl as listed.
2. Mix on 6 for 12 seconds.
3. Lock lid and knead for 1.5 minutes.
4. Place dough in a bowl and cover with a clean tea towel.   Allow to rise for 30 minutes.

Dough Method (other)

1. Add ingredients as listed into a bowl.
2. Mix with a spoon until just combined.
3. Use hands to form a ball and knead for about 10 minutes.
4. Allow to rise in a bowl for 30 minutes (cover with a clean tea towel).

Filling Method

5. Remove dough from the bowl and punch down.
6. Form dough into a ball and roll out in a rectangle shape (use a bit of extra flour on the bench or board before rolling out to avoid sticking).  Tip: The rectangle doesn’t have to be a perfect shape — as you can see from the picture below.
7. Cover rectangle with tomato sauce and sprinkle on desired amount of cheese and bacon bits (or whatever filling you want, like vegemite and cheese).
8. Starting from the small side of the rectangle, roll up the dough until you get to the end.
9. Using a bread knife, cut the scroll into 9 even sections and place on a baking paper lined tray.  (NOTE: do not cut on a Thermomix mat as it will damage it.  I took the picture on the mat before transferring it to a board.)
10. Allow to rise for 15-20 minutes.
11. Place tray in a cold oven and turn to 180°C to 190°C and cook until golden (about 15-20 minutes).

    I have made these twice now. so perfect!
    I let the dough prove for 30mins or longer as the recipe says after mixing dough.

    But I don’t bother letting it prove for 15 mins after I’ve cut it up. Stick it in a cold oven at 180 degrees fan forced for 20 mins and its perfect everytime!

    I’ve done tomato paste, basil pesto, parmesan, mozzarella and bacon as a filling.

    and apple and cinnamon are in the oven now. should be delicious!

    Would you need to store these in the fridge if you were using ham and cheese as the filing?

      Hey Natalie. I always freeze my scrolls straight away and then put them in the lunch box from the freezer. This way they stay delicious and fresh (and are thawed by lunch time). I would do the same with hame and cheese. I think if you store them in the fridge, they will go stale pretty quickly but if you’re eating them the same day, should be okay.

    Thanks for this recipe! I’m a terrible baker (just being honest) and have tried a number of scroll recipes which turned out tough and horrible. I am a decent pizza base maker and this is similar to what I do, so a plus. Also I like that I didn’t have to add a tonne of butter (besides not having any, the amount is not necessary) and massage it like in other recipes (I’m also lazy). I have already shared this with my sister, and am currently contemplating using the cream cheese, spinach, feta and hot smoked salmon that are calling me from the refrigerator. Seeya healthy diet lol.

    Thank you very much for this recipe
    I use a bread maker to make these on the dough setting
    Another variation we make is spinach and feta.
    500 g of frozen spinach, 200 g of feta, 100 g of tasty cheese, cut into small pieces mixed and spread on that though.

    Strike the flamin crows!!!! This recipe is to-die-for. I just ate one straight out of the oven and I am in heaven. I have never made scrolls as my bread recipes are usually a fail. I did my dough in the Kenwood Mix master. This is unbelievable. Thanks a million Kelly!!

    Has anyone tried with whole meal flour? Would the consistency be different?

    Really delicious easy recipe. I used a homemade salsa as the base sauce. I prepared it ahead of time and stored it in the fridge overnight (uncooked scrolls), then cooked fresh for school lunches the following morning and this worked very well.

    I have tried a few pizza scroll recipes and this is hands down the best! I try to keep a batch in the freezer for grab and go lunch box fillings. My daughter loves helping to make the dough as well. Thanks for sharing
