Pizza Roll

Lovely pizza dough made thick and rolled up with the pizza topping inside. Sprinkle a bit of cheese on top and there we have the perfect pizza roll!

As I currently have a little time, I had been surfing on the web the other day. On the lookout for fresh, exciting thoughts, inspiring dishes that I’ve never tasted before, to astonish my family with. Searching for a long time unfortunately couldn’t find too many interesting things. Right before I thought to give up on it, I ran across this delightful and simple treat simply by chance. It looked so delicious on its photos, it called for urgent actions.

It absolutely was simple enough to imagine just how it is made, its taste and how much my hubby might love it. Mind you, it is quite simple to impress him when it comes to cakes. Yes, I’m a blessed one. Or maybe he is.Anyways, I got into the blog: Suncakemom and simply followed the detailed instuctions that have been accompanied by impressive snap shots of the procedure. It just makes life much simpler. I could imagine that it’s a bit of a hassle to take snap shots in the midst of cooking in the kitchen as you may ordinarily have sticky hands so I highly appreciate the effort and time she devote to make this post and recipe conveniently implemented.

With that in mind I’m empowered to present my own recipe similarly. Thanks for the thought.

I was tweaking the initial recipe to make it for the taste of my family. I can mention it was a terrific outcome. They loved the flavor, the structure and enjoyed having a sweet such as this in the midst of a lively week. They quite simply requested more, many more. So next time I’m not going to make the same miscalculation. I am gonna double the volume to keep them happy.

This Pizza Roll is from SunCakeMom.


Put fresh yeast into half cup of lukewarm (not hot!) milk. Set it aside whilst preparing the other ingredients.

Get a big bowl and put flour, sliced room temperature butter, egg and the lukewarm water in it.

Pour the yeasty milk into a big bowl on top of the other ingredients.

Knead the mixture well until it’s even and there’s no flour left on the edge of the bowl.

Cover the bowl and leave it in a warm place for about an hour to rise. (We can put it in the 100°F / 40°C heated oven. Be careful not to turn the heat higher than that as it would kill the yeast so the dough won’t rise.)


In the meantime, prepare the filling. Chop tomatoes, basil, oregano, salt and olive oil in a blender.

Pour it into a saucepan, bring it to boil and simmer it in low-medium heat for about 20 minutes while stirring occasionally.

Take it off heat and set it aside. Pouring hot sauce on the dough, would make it gooey and so hard to handle that it would ruin our day.

After an hour waiting take dough out of the bowl onto a well-floured work surface.

Roll it into a square. Flouring underneath the dough is important as this coating will prevent it to stick down.

Spread tomato sauce evenly on top.

Roll dough up into a log.

Cut crosswise into 1″ / 2cm wide pieces.

Place the pieces apart on the baking tray.

Cover and let them rise for another half an hour. Meanwhile grate the cheese and turn the oven on to 180 C.

Sprinkle cheese on top before popping it into the oven.

Bake them for about 20 minutes or until the cheese it melted and golden brown.
