School Lunches - Pizza Scrolls

This is week 8 of Term 1 and thought I would mix things up with the school lunches this week.  James takes a ham sandwich everyday and Sienna takes cold pasta with tomato sauce on it.  Sienna loves sandwiches on a weekend at home when it's made fresh but doesn't like sandwiches for school.  James just wants ham however I know they both love these pizza scrolls so yesterday I made a batch for them for school lunch this week.  I last made these in September last year and you wonder why it takes so long to do something so easy.

I really need to make these every other week and they are really cheap to make.  I ended up making small ones this time by cutting my roll into two however last time I just rolled the whole thing and made them bigger, it's up to you.

I made a pizza dough recipe, let it prove and then rolled the dough really flat.  I sprinkled flour onto the bench first and then rolled it flat and spread out the tomato sauce that we made last week followed by some chopped up ham, cheese and some dried oregano.  Once they are cooked I cool them down and then pop them in a container in the freezer and take them out each day.  If you haven't made them before I highly recommend you make them.  My kids eat them cold at school however you could heat them up in the microwave for 15-20 seconds for afternoon tea and would be great during the colder months for an after school snack.  You could put any topping on them including Vegemite and cheese, bacon, even left over bolognese would be nice.

Making the pizza dough.

Roll the dough out on the bench, sprinkle with flour first.

Spread lightly with tomato sauce or BBQ sauce.

Add the chopped up ham.

Top with grated cheese.

Sprinkle with herbs.  If I had spring onions I would have used this however I used dried Oregano.

 Cook in the oven on 200 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

Let cool on a wire rack.  Delicious.
