Pizza Scrolls

27 Aug

I know, these don’t look pretty.  However they are very easy to whip up for a quick lunch and are of course extremely tasty.


  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½  tsp salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • Topping:
  • ½ cup tomato puree
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 ½ cups grated cheese
  • (any other bits that you may like to add eg pineapple, salami, capsicum)

Oven: Preheat to 200.C


Place the dry ingredients into a bowl.  Make a well in the centre and pour the buttermilk into it.  Mix together with a butter knife to form a soft dough.  Turn out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth.  Roll out to a 30cm square.

Spread over the tomato puree and then sprinkle with the dried oregano and then the cheese.  (If you want, you can now put on anything else that you think may be yummy.  I always add a few chunks of pineapple. Just don’t over do it, as it is difficult to roll up.)

Roll up and slice into 10 pieces and place into a greased muffin tin.  Bake for 25-30mins or until golden on top.


You don’t have to place them in a muffin tin to cook.  You can just place them closely together in a baking dish. I just like they way they look in a muffin tin.  When I say I grease the tin, I actually just spray it with non-stick oil from a can. Easy!  You can use this dough for pizza. oh and this dough is a bit sticky but don’t worry it is meant to be like that.  To make these scrolls that little bit special try brushing some sweet thai chilli sauce over the top. To make it easier to brush over I just warm the sauce gently first.
