It’s hard getting my fussy kiddos to eat a variety of veg, so I put them in scrolls. The upside is that they’re delicious as well!



  • 290ml lukewarm water7
  • 7g dried yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 cups plain flour
  • 2 cups tasty cheese, grated
  • 12 cup hidden veggie sauce


  1. To make the pizza dough, add yeast and water with the sugar and let sit for five minutes. In a large bowl, add the flour and the salt. Pour in the water.
  2. I did this in the breadmaker, but by hand just incorporate the ingredients until they come together.
    Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic (about 10 minutes) (no need to do this if you’ve made it in the breadmaker).
  3. Put back in the bowl and cover. Leave to rise in a warm place until doubled in volume (half an hour to an hour). Gather your cheese and sauce supplies.
  4. Punch the dough down and give it a quick knead. Roll out into a large rectangle on a floured surface. I left it about a centimetre thick.
  5. Cover the dough with the veggie sauce. Then add grated tasty cheese right to the edges, but leaving a strip about a centimetre wide down one of the longest sides.
  6. Roll up from the widest edge (sometimes I need a spatula or knife to help lift it off the bench if I’ve been a bit stingy with the flour) until you have a fat little roll.
  7. Slice crossways at one-inch intervals and lay them cut side down on a greased baking tray.
  8. Bake at about 180C for 10-15 minutes, or until dough is cooked through and browned. Best on the day they’re made, but can be frozen.
