Easy Pizza Rolls



For this week’s theme of “Kid’s Delight – Snacks and Bites” for the Blogging Marathon #98, I am jumping in with these Pizza Rolls that I baked for Rasha’s class party along with the Brookies. You must be wondering what did I make for Azza then. She came home saying that her teacher asked her to make some “healthy sandwich” and that too only 12 of them. I was a bit concerned. Only 12? And that too sandwich? I asked her again and again, and she kept saying “yes”. I ended up making chicken salad sandwich for her class, which didn’t take much time as Rasha’s goodies took. Anyway… 😀


Rasha actually wanted pizza. But then making mini pizza is a small pain, especially for a class party. So I convinced her that I would make rolls, so that they are easier to carry and eat. After thinking for sometime, she agreed. These rolls get done in flat one hour, since we don’t proof the dough. That explains why it has a little more yeast than a pizza dough would usually have. Despite the lack of proofing, the end result are super fluffy rolls with a heavy pizza flavor. I didn’t add any filling, since I didn’t want any child to miss eating it. We all know how fussy kids can be over a piece of olive or capsicum on pizzas, hehe…


There is only one catch for these rolls – they are best when warm. So it tastes amazing the day it is baked, or even the next day when warmed. So always make sure to warm them and have in case if there are some leftovers. Off to the recipe… 🙂

    The pizza rolls looks absolutely yummy. They are a perfect party snack for kids and would be gone within minutes and since you have made them using whole wheat flour they are a bit guilt free too.

    Those pizza rolls looks yumm rafee! Perfect bite sized snack! I always opt for simple cheese topping as many kids don’t like lot of veggies in their pizza!! All the rolls snuggled in that pan, looks very tempting
