Margherita Pizza Scrolls are super quick and very easy to make. Easily frozen, they are perfect for tucking into lunchbox or serving at kids parties.
Why, in the bring-a-plate lottery, do I invariably get the savoury option? The sweet option is so much easier. Particularly as these days the majority of pot luck functions I get to cater are for that most finicky of critics, children. No child is interested in a good curry or beetroot salad when there are sweet options to be had. In these situations I invariably supply these pizza scrolls. If you have stored dough in the fridge they are quick to make and are usually well received by the critics. What child doesn’t like pizza in some form?
I first made these pizza scrolls for The Princess as an after school snack. Then I encountered that scenario that most parents will be familiar with. “Mum, we’re having a party at school tomorrow. You need to make something savoury.” This is usually announced late in the evening, just as you are trying to get dinner on the table. Or if you are really lucky, just as you are tucking the precious (precocious?) child into bed.
There was a note of course. It had been sent home much earlier in the week. Had I known, I would have been able to actually put some thought into what to provide (or at the very least been able to dash to the shops to buy something suitable). Children are sneaky like that, though. They love to keep you on your toes. So of course the note had been screwed up and shoved into the furtherest corner of the bag, where she knew I wouldn’t check until at least the end of term.
As a result, The Princess was sent to school with a container of pizza scrolls, hastily made with my stored dough and frozen pizza sauce. The fact that she didn’t come home with any suggests to me that they were well received. Either that or she tossed the left overs in the bin. I choose to believe the children loved them. So guaranteed that the next time I need to supply a savoury option, these pizza scrolls will be on the menu.
