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)

Filling

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).

    Hi, I tried this recipe tonight and it’s fab! Just thought I should mention though I cut the scrolls up on my thermomat as in the image and it has damaged my mat. I just googled it the mat contains fiberglass, and should never be cut on as the fiberglass can then go into the food.

      Thanks for adding this Renee. I realised that too, when I cut it! I then moved it to a board (but I forgot about it when I put the post together) I’ll add a note to the post with a warning. Thanks for letting me know.

    These are amazing, I make a lot every week and freeze them and defrost for the kids lunches as needed. Have made many flavours and all turned out yummo! However I tend to rise my yeast in water first before adding to the dry ingredients as this is what I was taught as a kid.

    My first time making these scrolls and the dough is not rising at all! It’s been an hour! 🙁 I’ve followed the recipe exactly – what do you think has gone wrong?

    • Reply
      Mel
      December 30, 2014 at 8:01 pm

      Could have been any number of things. The flour could be stale, the water may have been too warm and killed the yeast or the yeast was stale, the place you left the dough to rise wasn’t warm enough. Dough should generally start rising within 10 minutes.

    I’ve just made a batch of these…..using ham, cheese, pineapple & bbq sauce. The boys are just taste testing them as I type this. Thumbs up from them. I might roll mine a little thinner next time, but not bad. I will experiment too with different flavours (i.e. sweet ones & different savoury ones…feta & spinach).

    I’m making these for the second time tonight! I thought I might post a little tip: very easy to cut into scrolls by using a piece of unflavoured dental floss or thread. Just slide the thread under the rolled up dough to where you would like to cut the scroll. Then bring ends together over the top, cross, and pull through the dough. If this is hard to imagine, simply search “cutting cinnamon buns with thread”. You end up with very precise cuts, without flattening the roll!

    These scrolls are so easy to make and my son loves taking them to school for his lunch. I have also passed this recipe on to quite a few people and they have all had success with them. The fillings I have used are: tomato paste, shredded ham, pineapple and cheese, Vegemite and cheese (yes I’m from Australia) and sweet chilli scrolls. Thanks so much for an easy and very economical recipe

    why the cold oven? I have a really old/slow to heat up oven and I normally cook a few things in a row as it takes so long to get hot? If i put it in a pre heated oven will it matter?

      Putting it in a cold oven gives it a third rise. But you don’t need to do that. You can pre-heat your oven to the right temperature, and then put them in to cook.

    I usually make sweet scrolls with cinnamon or Apple. But tonight I made these. They were FANTASTIC! The dough in this recipie comes out so soft and fluffy!! Just like the ones in the store in,t wayyyyy more flavor! I filled mine with bacon,garlic, red onion, and parsley which I sautéed in thermy for 3 mins. Then added the cheese on top before rolling. Couldn’t be happier with this recipie. Can’t wait till I have my own kids to feed them too!

      I just made these using fan forced oven at 180c and worked perfect, i cooked second batch as soon as first batch came out (effectively pre-heated) and worked fine, just watch for the desired colour on the outsides.

      Amazing recipe, thank you

    Got these in the oven now! Is the 15-20 minutes from the point that the oven reaches the set temperature?

    Also – would this work with wholemeal flour? And if we use sweet fillings, do we need to adapt the dough at all?

    Thanks for posting the recipe – my toddler loves vegemite and cheese scrolls from Baker’s Delight so hoping she will go for these too!
