Roly-Poly Pizzas

These Roly-Poly Pizzas are always a lunchtime winner.  They freeze well too, so you can stock up for the days and weeks ahead.  Also they're great for packed lunches and Picnics, plus you can change the fillings to suit to what you have in your store cupboard. The kids will love making these and are a great way for them to get involved in food and choosing flavour combos, with delicious rewards for their efforts. x

  • 300g/ 10 1/2 oz Strong White Flour                     

  • 1/2 tsp Fast-Acting / Easy-Bake Yeast

  • 1/2 tsp Caster Sugar

  • 1 tsp Salt

  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil

  • 200ml/7 floz Tepid Water

  • 4 tbsp Passata / or Sauce of Choice

  • 1 tsp Dried Oregano / or Dried Herb of Choice

  • 100g / 5 oz Ham, Thinly Sliced / or any Combo Choose

  • 125g / 5 oz Grated Mozzarella / Any Cheese you have in the Fridge or prefer

  • Salt and Pepper

Preheat the Oven to 180 c / 350 f and line a baking tray with Baking Paper.  Either in a mixer with a dough hook or by hand, make your Pizza Dough.  Put the Flour, Yeast, Sugar and Salt in a large mixing bowl.  If your using a mixer pop in the Water and Oil as well and turn on to combine.  If your using your hands make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the Water and Oil and using a spoon to star with begin to mix together.  Once you have a lump of dough start using your hands and knead on a floured surface.  After about 5 minutes  you should have a nice smooth dough that bounces back when rudely poked with a finger.  Place your dough into a clean mixing bowl, cover and leave to rise in a warm place for about 40 minutes.  When you return, the dough should have doubled in size.  Remove from the bowl and knead again for about a minute before pulling out on a large chopping board into a rectangle approx 40cm x 25cm.  Spoon on the Passata or Sauce and spread evenly then add the other ingredients, sprinkling them over the surface.  Turn the Pizza so that the longest side is in front of you and carefully begin to roll the Pizza up like you would a swiss roll.  Cut the roll of Pizza into 12 pieces and lay them on the Baking Tray with the cut side up.  Pop into the Oven for around 25 minutes or until cooked.
