  • 500 g stored dough
  • Homemade Pizza Sauce
  • Shredded mozzarella or other pizza cheese.


  • Preheat the oven to 180C.
  • Line a large baking tray.
  • Stretch or roll the dough into a 20cm x 40cm (5mm thick) rectangle with the long edge parallel to the edge of the bench.
  • Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce over the dough, leaving a 2cm gap along the closest long edge of the roll.
  • Scatter over the mozzarella.
  • Starting at the top of the rectangle (the long side) roll the dough towards you, tucking the dough into a scroll as you move.
  • Finish the roll with the seam under the roll of dough.
  • Using a sharp serrated knife, cut the dough into 3cm slices.
  • Place the slices onto the tray and allow to sit for 10 minutes.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the scrolls are golden brown.
  • Remove from the tray and allow to cool on a rack.


I make these as simple tomato and cheese scrolls, but there is no reason why you cannot add your favourite pizza toppings before you roll the dough into a scroll. Just don't add to many toppings or the dough will become difficult to roll.
These scrolls can be baked as soon as they are placed on the tray. I have done so many times when in a hurry.
The baked scrolls freeze well, so are handy to have in the freezer for emergency snacks. Just zap in the microwave or warm gently in the oven.
