Pizza Rolls

  • Pizza dough
  • 100g of Mozzarella cheese ( 0.88 cup)
  • 100g of Tomato sauce (1/2 cup)
  • Salt, pepper and oregano to taste
  • Basil leaves for garnish

For the Pizza Dough

  • 500g Of all purpose flour (3 cups + 2 tbsp)
  • 300ml Warm water (1 1/4 cup)
  • 10g Of instant yeast (2.25 tsp)
  • 1 Tsp sugar
  • 2 Tsp salt

For the tomato sauce

  • 150g Of peeled tomatoes (about 1 cup)
  • 4 Basil leaves
  • Salt, pepper and oregano to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon of olive oil


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, yeast and sugar and stir together.
  2. Add the warm water and start stirring with a wooden spoon.
  3. Add salt and start kneading with your hands.
  4. To make a better dough transfer to a flat surface and knead for about 10 to 15 minutes. The result should be a smooth and elastic dough.
  5. Let the pizza dough rest in the bowl covered with a cloth for about 1 1/2 hours. ( You can skip this part if you use ready-made pizza dough)
  6. When the pizza dough has risen just right, it should rise more than twice as high. Let’s start making the tomato sauce that we’ll use to top the pizza rolls.
  7. In a bowl, combine the peeled tomatoes, basil, 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt, pepper and oregano and whisk together.
  8. Grate the mozzarella and set aside.
  9. On a floured pastry board, roll out the pizza dough with a rolling pin and form a rectangle not too thick.
  10. Pour the tomato sauce over it, and with the help of a spoon spread it in the pizza dough. Add the mozzarella and oregano, I added half an onion.
  11. Roll it up to form a sausage. Seal well the edge after rolling the dough
  12. With a knife, cut the roll into slices a couple of inches thick and place them on an oiled baking sheet. Cover with a cloth and let rise until the dough has doubled in size.
  13. Preheat the static oven to 180 degrees. Before putting them in the oven, with a brush wet the pizza rolls with a little milk. Bake for about 25/30 minutes.
  14. Our pizza rolls are ready.Serve them while hot with some basil on top.


  • Resist adding too much filling, because it will be hard to roll the dough if there is too much stuff in it. Also, it will be a mess if the filling starts to run.
  • Don’t forget to seal the edge after rolling the dough so it won’t burst when cutting.
  • Add a pinch of sugar to your pizza sauce to reduce acidity and make it even more kid-friendly.
