Recipe of the Week - Pizza Swirls

Homemade pizza is a nice easy dinner, especially if you make the pizza dough in your bread maker or food mixer like I do.

A few weeks ago we saw these Pizza Rolls in the bakery section of the supermarket and that got me thinking about how we could just as easily make them at home.

The end result was even better than I had hoped. These Pizza Swirls are great picnic or packed lunch food and make a nice change from sandwiches. James is now always requesting in his packed lunch for school.

To make the swirls you will need:
~quantity of pizza dough
~tomato sauce (ketchup) and tomato puree
~grated cheddar cheese

When your dough is ready to roll out, instead of rolling it into a circle, roll it into a rectangle.

Spread a good few dollops of tomato sauce and puree all over the dough. I like to use the puree as well as the sauce as it thickens the sauce a bit.

Cover this tomato layer with a layer of cheese. You could use a traditional Mozzarella if you prefer but I don't want these to be too messy to eat by hand.

Now roll up like a swiss roll, starting from the long side.

Cut up the roll into slices about an inch thick and place on a baking tray.

Add a little more grated cheese to each slice.

Bake at 180 - 200°C for around 20 minutes.

  1. What a great idea! Your pizza rolls look delicious! We eat pizza at least once a week - and this would be a fun variation!
    Have a great day, Kirsteen!
