Kids lunch box ideas – pizza and pesto scrolls

So Sarah here with this one 🙂

These pizza or pesto scrolls have become a firm favourite in our household and do really well for you to make a whole batch and freeze them. Then at lunch box packing time your kids can grab a couple out of the freezer and they will be defrosted by lunch time 🙂

So 1st Pizza Dough you can use this recipe to make big pizzas too 🙂

Ingredients

500g plain flour ( I use spelt )

2 teaspoons of dried yeast

1 & 1/3 cup of warm water

4 tablespoons olive oil

pinch salt

Method

sift flour into large bowl

dissolve dried yeast in the warm water

add to the flour with the olive oil and salt

knead well into a smooth ball

leave to rest in a warm place for 1 hr until its doubled in size

1/2 cup of pine nuts

1 garlic clove

2oz of finely grated parmesan cheese

4 tablespoons of olive oil

1 cup of either basil or rocket, firmly pressed down or 2 cups if loser

Now to make up your pizza scrolls

So 1st you need to roll out your pizza dough. I do this in 2 batches .

Now I mix 2 tablespoons of my pesto with some tomato paste to make my pizza sauce, which I spread thinly on the dough. Add some grated cheesed to the top, this is where I use the ready packs of pizza cheese from all supermarkets

On the 2nd pizza base I will just add the pesto sauce for my pesto scrolls

Now carefully roll these up into little scrolls and cut
