Pizza Scrolls

These delicious scrolls are a Women's Weekly recipe and are sure to be a hit with the whole family.  They are easy to make, perfect to get the kids involved and are a great snack or even meal, any time of the day! Take these along to a shared morning tea or lunch and they'll be a hit, and feel free to use whatever ingredients you have on hand - ham works a treat instead of salami.  I made these as a healthy option for footy food.  Give it a go!  And make sure you listen to the podcast to see how they fared in the Family Show Taste Test :-)

2 cups (300g) self-raising flour
30g butter
¾ cup (180ml) milk
¼ cup (70g) tomato paste
2 teaspoons italian herb blend
100g sliced mild salami, cut into thin strips
1 medium green capsicum (200g), cut into thin strips
2 cups (200g) coarsely grated pizza cheese

Preheat oven to moderate. Grease 19cm x 29cm slice pan.

Place flour in medium bowl; use fingers to rub butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Stir in milk; mix to a soft, sticky dough. Knead dough lightly on floured surface; using rolling pin, roll dough out to form 30cm x 40cm rectangle.

Using back of large spoon, spread tomato paste all over base. Sprinkle herbs evenly over base; top with salami, capsicum then cheese.

Starting from one of the long sides, roll dough tightly; trim edges. Using serrated knife, cut roll carefully into 12 even slices; place slices, facing cut-side up, in single layer, in prepared pan. Bake scroll slices, uncovered, in moderate oven about 30 minutes or until browned lightly.

Edit note:  For my latest batch of scrolls, I placed the uncooked scrolls into the holes of a muffin pan.  I LOVED the result, they were so much neater and prettier!  Will be doing this all the time now :-)  Also, the other variety in the photo (along with the pizza ones) are sweet chilli sauce & cheese - winner!
