PIZZA ROLLS

PIZZA ROLLS


Grandchildren are the best gift from God, and I am lucky to have three grandchildren, two are boys and one is a girl. My granddaughter is three years old and she lives in Toronto. My two grandsons are living with me and they both know that I love my blog and enjoy sharing my recipes and they both even know the name of my blog. They both love my cooking and they always appreciate and give the best compliments a grandmother can ever have in the world. All three of my grandchildren are artistically inclined and many a time I have enjoyed and admired their creations.


When I started my blog in 2014, my eldest grandson who was 8 years old at that time, after asking the name of my blog, suggested using spices to write the name of my blog. I really liked the idea and the three of us did a good project of writing the name of the blog with the available spices in my kitchen and they really enjoyed that project. I took the picture of that, which I used as a blog header for many months on my blog.

 

Yesterday, when I was doing some work on my laptop, the younger one who is 7 years old now came to me and told me, “Grandma I am bored, I do not know what to do”, I gave him the idea that he can do some drawing and coloring. After listening to my idea of colouring and drawing, he got some pencils and colours and sat on a chair, near my table and was busy for half an hour and I was busy too with my work.



After half an hour he came to me and showed his drawing, to my big surprise, on that paper I saw the heading was, “Herbs Spices and Tradition”, with a lot of colourful food items that were also drawn on it. I was totally impressed with his drawing, couldn't believe my eyes and gave him a big hug and told him that I will take the picture of it and post it on my blog. Then I suggested to him to write the name of the food items as well so that my readers can also enjoy his drawing and understand what he has drawn, for which I helped in spelling some words as well. Following is the picture.




Both my grandsons love these pizza rolls and they even take them in their lunch boxes to school, so they are made regularly in my kitchen. This recipe is an easy one and I have used brown flour to make it healthy.

RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups brown flour (Whole wheat flour)
  • Half packet active dry yeast ( 5grams)
  • 1tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tbs oil
  • more oil for coating

FOR PIZZA FILLING

  • One medium finely chopped onion
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbs butter (preferably at room temperature)
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2tbs tomato ketchup
  • 50 grams grated mozzarella cheese
  • 2 green chili optional

METHOD

  • In a cup, dissolve the yeast in 1/2 cup of warm water, add sugar and salt in it. Mix well and leave it for 5 minutes until the colour of the water changes and becomes foamy.
  • In a big bowl take flour, add salt, oil and this foamy water of yeast, mix more water and make a soft dough, coat all sides of the dough with oil.
  • Cover with plastic wrap to let it rise (until double the original size). Keep it in a warm place for 1-2 hours to rise.
  • Finely chop onion, garlic and green chilies and mix into the butter (room temperature) and keep it aside.
  • Punch the dough down and divide into two big balls, roll out the ball thin on a flat surface, spread the mixture of onion garlic and butter thinly on top of the dough.
  • Now give a thin layer of ketchup and sprinkle the grated cheese evenly on top of the dough.
  • Cut thin strips as shown in the picture, and roll all the way up to the end of the strip and keep them on a baking tray, leaving some distance in between the rolls.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes till the cheese is melted.
  • These rolls can be served hot or cold.
