Last year the bf and I went through a phase of making these pizza scrolls all the time. We wanted to make something savoury, and once we’d decided cheese scones, we took it further and added bacon, onion, pizza sauce and other goodies and then rolled them all up.
I’ve got a work morning tea today and decided savoury was the way to go. We pulled out the trusty edmonds cookbook for their cheese scone recipe, and got busy adapting.
3 c flour
6 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1-1.5 c milk
2 c cheese
1/2 t cayenne pepper
250g streaky bacon
1/2 c sliced black olives
1/2 c pizza sauce (or tomato paste)
Dice the onion and cut up the bacon. Fry. Put to the side, far enough away that you won’t keep picking at it and eating it all up.
Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Cut butter in until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the cheese and cayenne pepper and mix through. Add milk and mix with a knife to a soft dough. Knead a few times.
Roll out into a rectangle onto a floured bench - for smaller scrolls split the mix into two and roll out two rectangles. Cover in pizza sauce and scatter over your goodies - in this case your cooked onion and bacon, olives and cheese. Carefully roll up, using the longest edge.
Get a small water bowl and wet the edge, pinching to bring it together (don’t want it to unravel while baking!). Slice and lay on a floured oven tray. Cover in cheese. Bake in an oven at 220 (celcius) for about 10 minutes, turning half way through if your oven is as finnicky as mine.
Best eaten when warm. Enjoy!
