These pizza rolls are an easy, quick, and delicious snack for breakfast or any other time of the day. They can be eaten hot from the oven or cold as a snack to go.
All you need is pizza dough, grated cheese, and whatever else you like to eat on your pizza.
The original inspiration for these pizza rolls came from those awesome Vegan Pizza Snails, but mine turned out more like filled bread rolls you might find at the bakery.
The good thing about these rolls is that—just like with pizza—you can put anything you like on them. Here are two suggestions:
Original Pizza-Style Rolls
I used store-bought pizza dough because it is quicker, but of course you can also make your own. Just make sure to have a square-shaped dough. Cut a few stripes and top them with tomato paste.
Season with herbs and spices to taste. Then top with anything you like. Don’t forget the grated cheese. That’s the best part. Okay, I admit it, I just love cheese! 😉
Roll the stripes into little rolls, try to make sure that as little as possible of the topping comes out. If it does, push it back in a little. With the opening on the bottom, place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes. They need as much time as the pizza dough would usually need, but remember that even if they look crisp outside, the many layers of dough in the middle need time to bake through as well.
Et voilà! It didn’t take long until they were all eaten up.
Sweet Pizza Rolls
We like to make sweet pizza, so I thought why not sweet pizza rolls.
Top your pizza stripes with crème fraîche or double creme (whatever you have). Get some dried fruit of your choice. I used apricots and figs.
Chop up the dried fruit into little pieces and top your pizza stripes with them. Again, don’t forget the grated cheese. 😉
Roll up, place on baking tray and into the over for about 20-25 minutes.
And here you go. My folks just loved them…
