Rising and Resting Time
Two 20cm (8 inch) pie tins
For the Pizza Dough (Optional - Feel Free to Use Ready Made!)
strong white bread flour
fast action yeast
For the Pizza Rolls Topping
tomato and basil pasta sauce
kalamata olives, sliced
fresh basil leaves
vegan cheese, grated
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Make the Pizza Dough
Combine the flours, yeast, salt, oregano and garlic pepper in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook.
Add the oil and warm water (not hot).
Mix your dough on low speed for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic.
Turn into a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a tea towel and leave to prove in a warm place for 1-2 hours or until doubled in size.
Make the Sauce
Add your pasta sauce to a small pan and simmer for about 15 minutes or until reduced and thickened - no one wants a runny pizza and it makes rolling tricky!
Assemble Your Pizza Rolls
Preheat your oven to 200C/390F
Lightly grease two 20cm (8") pie tins
Knock back your dough (poke it with your fingers), divide it into two equal pieces
Roll each piece of dough out to form a rectangle measuring approximately 20cm x 40cm (8" x 16")
Share the tomato sauce between the two pizzas and spread evenly on the dough leaving a small margin around the edges
Sprinkle with olives, basil and cheese (or your chosen toppings), keeping some to prinkle on top. Add black pepper to taste.
Starting with one of the long edges carefully roll the pizzas up, tucking the filling in as you go, to make two long sausages.
Leave to rest in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
Slice each pizza sausage into 12 pieces.
Put one pizza roll in the centre of your pie tins and then nestle the rest in a circle around it with their faces upwards so you can see the rolled fillings .
Sprinkle with your leftover toppings and bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes or until browning.
Serve! If you want to turn it out, put a plate on top and turn your pie dish upside down - the pizza rolls should just slide out onto it.
