Sausage and Caprese Pizza Rolls

I find Pizza Rolls to be the perfect snack. They can be filled with a variety of things, are always very delicious and kids love it too.  I have been wanting to do these appetizers for so long and finally gotten around to doing it now. And since I was preparing the pizza dough already I thought why not make two kinds. You can definitely use ready-made pizza dough. Or if you want to do it from scratch head over to my 'Mini Peri Peri Pizzas' and follow the dough recipe. That dough makes two pizzas or 24-32 pinwheels. I don't recommend scaling down the recipe. If you don't want to use the entire dough you can freeze it up. Freezing instructions are also linked in that post.

So now to the fillings of these pinwheels. One dough is first slathered with pizza sauce and topped with sausage (or you can use pepperoni) and cheese. A simple yet delicious take! I wanted to do something fancy with the other one so decided to make it Caprese-style. The dough is seasoned with sea salt, black pepper and oregano then we add fresh basil, mozarella and tomato slices. The sausage pinwheels are very cheesey. I use two kinds, Gouda and Cheddar. But you can use whatever cheese mix you prefer. The Caprese one tastes very fresh because of the basil. You can also drizzle some balsamic glaze after they are done baking.

How to cook Sausage and Caprese Pizza Rolls

  1. Prepare the pizza dough with my recipe here or buy a ready-made one.
  2. Divide the pizza dough into two portions.
  3. Place a parchment paper on your working surface to avoid sticking. Then roll out each portion of pizza dough into a rectangle of around 22 x 28 cm.
  4. Brush both doughs with olive oil to prevent sogginess.
  5. For the sausage rolls: slather pizza sauce all across leaving 2-3 cm from the side to seal the edge in the end. Top with crumbled or grated Gouda and Cheddar cheese. Sprinkle some italian herbs. Then put the sausage slices.
  6. For the caprese rolls: sprinkle with sea salt, crushed black pepper, oregano and garlic powder. Then add the Mozzarella cheese, basil leaves and cherry tomatoes.
  7. From the longer side start folding the dough tightly like a log. Wrap it all and pinch the edges.
  8. Freeze for 15 mins while you preheat the oven. The freezing will make the cutting easier later.
  9. Then cut into around 2-3 cm sized pinwheels. Each log will give you around 12 - 16 pinwheels.
  10. Place the rolls on a baking tray lined with parchment paper with spaces between them. Brush with the whisked egg to get golden exterior.
  11. Bake at 200C for 15-20 mins till the cheese melts and they get golden.
  12. Serve hot!

NOTES:

You can bake each set of pinwheels separately if you don't have enough space in your oven. Keep one log of dough in the freezer while you are baking the other.
