Weight Ingredient
500 g All-purpose flour
10 g Salt

300 g Water
20 g Olive oil
  • Mix all of the mentioned ingredients except for the olive oil together in a stand mixer for 4 minutes on speed one and 8 minutes on speed two

3. Shape

Weight Ingredient
~500 g Mozzarella cheese
~100 g Ham
  • Take a baking plate, cover it with parchment paper and place a small bowl in the center
  • Punch down the dough to degase it a bit
  • Divide the dough into 20 equal pieces (about 42 g per piece) and roll each one into a small ball
  • Cover them with a clean towel so they don’t dry out while shaping one after the other
    • Flour the surface a bit
    • Roll the dough out to a rough circle of about 10 cm
    • Place a bit of ham and mozzarella cheese in the center
    • Gather the sides and pinch closed to create a ball
    • Place each ball seam side down around the bowl on the baking plate
    • Repeat the process for the other 19 dough pieces

    4. Coat

    Weight Ingredient
    ~5 g Olive oil
    ~50 g Parmesan cheese
    • Remove the bowl from the center of the baking plate
    • Brush the pizza rolls with olive oil on top
    • Sprinkle Permesan cheese over all rolls

    5. Bake

    • Preheat oven to 220°C (374°F) for ~25 minutes with the upper and lower heat function
    • Put the stuffed pizza rolls in the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown
    • After baking take your pizza rolls out immediately

    6. Cool

    Weight Ingredient
    ~5 g Parsley
    ~200 g Dip (pizza sauce / sour cream / aioli / ketchup)
    • Sprinkle some parsley on top and place the small bowl with your favourite dip in the center
    • Let your pizza rolls rolls cool for about 15 minutes and enjoy while still warm



    These stuffed pizza rolls have a lovely soft and fluffy crumb. We stuffed ours with mozzarella cheese and ham. As the cheese is melting it is super creamy inside so we would highly recommend to use cheese as well. To add another texture, we brushed them with olive oil on top and then added grated Parmesan cheese.

    A homemade and slightly spicy tomato sauce is the perfect addition but you can also enjoy them with ketchup, aioli, sour cream or a cheese dip.

    Whether for the party night or for curing your hangover future self – these stuffed pizza rolls are the cure and super tasty!
