This recipe for Yogurt Dough Pizza Scrolls has been updated in April 2019 to halve the quantity of the dough and add more detail around how to make this recipe based on reader feedback.
The last two weeks have been CRAZY. I have been super busy at work. And on top of this it’s been a busy time at home. I mean, it always is, but things seem more chaotic than normal. So it’s been hard to keep on top of recipe testing this last week. I like to have my blogs planned out a few weeks in advance so I am pretty much testing recipes all the time. But this week it’s been much more of a fly by the seat of my pants week. So I am soooo grateful I remembered these easy Yogurt Dough Pizza Scrolls that we had made a lot in the past but not so much recently!
If you haven’t heard about two ingredient yogurt dough yet I would be entirely surprised. It’s a super easy way to make dough. And it’s really versatile. And one of our family’s favourite ways to enjoy yogurt dough is these Yogurt Dough Pizza Scrolls.
Pizza scrolls are a fun option for the lunchbox instead of a sandwich. The key to making these Yogurt Dough Pizza Scrolls is to have a light hand with the fillings so they stay together when cooking. I also make these on a sheet of waxed baking paper. This will help when rolling the scrolls. If your baking paper is unwaxed be sure to grease it lightly.Print
These delicious Yogurt Dough Pizza Scrolls are fantastic for school lunches instead of a sandwich.
- 1 cups self raising flour plus 1/2 cup reserved self raising flour – see note
- 1 cup of greek yogurt – see note
- 1 tbsp tomato paste
- 50g of grated mozzarella or tasty cheese
- 10g pepperoni sliced into thin strips (optional – you could add pineapple or tomato instead or just leave out completely)
- Dried basil or oregano
- Preheat your oven to 190c and line a baking tray
- In a bowl add the greek yogurt and stir around a little.
- Add in 1 cup of self raising flour and mix together until a dough forms and smooth into a ball, it will be a little sticky at this point.
- Leave the dough in the bowl and continue to add the extra flour slowly as required (I find just over 1/4 cup is necessary but you may need more) kneading until the dough is workable, smooth to touch and is no longer sticky. This process will take around 5 minutes.
- Turn out the dough onto a piece of waxed baking paper. If your paper is not waxed then lightly spray with cooking oil. This will ensure the dough does not stick to the paper.
- Place the dough on the paper and quickly shape into a rectangle with your hands.
- With a floured rolling pin, roll out until the dough is about 1.5 cm thick. Try to work through this step quickly.
- Lightly spread the dough with tomato paste then sprinkle the cheese and the pepperoni (if using) evenly over the dough
- Quickly and gently roll the dough up evenly from the shortest side to form a log then slice each log into 8 even scrolls.
- Slightly squash, sprinkle with the dried herbs and put on the prepared baking tray
- Bake for around 12-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the dough has cooked and is lightly golden
This dough can be sticky so take care with how you measure the flour and Greek Yogurt. I measure the greek yogurt by spooning it in the measuring cup. I measure the flour by scooping it from the container and ensuring the flour is tightly packed (for this recipe only – do not measure flour like this in my other recipes).
Spend some time mixing the dough in the bowl, using a spoon until the dough is workable with your hands. You can add in additional flour if you feel it is too sticky but around 1/4 cup of flour (measured so it is tightly packed) should be sufficient.
It’s important to have waxed baking paper to avoid sticking. You could instead lightly grease the baking paper by spraying with cooking oil. It is also important to roll quickly and lightly with a floured rolling pin.
