About this recipe: All the flavour from a pizza, but in a bread roll! Bread dough is smothered with tomato puree, then scattered with bacon and cheese, before being rolled up, sliced and baked to perfection.


Makes: 10 rolls

  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 225g plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons dried active baking yeast
  • 2 teaspoons caster sugar
  • 250ml lukewarm water

  • 190g tomato puree
  • 150g cooked diced bacon
  • 125g mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon milk

Prep:25min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  2. In a large bowl; combine flours, yeast, salt, sugar and water.
  3. Combine all dough ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead until smooth. Use a lightly floured rolling pin to roll out the dough into a 30cm x 40cm rectangle.
  4. Spread the tomato puree onto the dough taking it as close to the edge as possible. Sprinkle with cheese and ham. Starting from a long side, roll up firmly to form a log. Brush the edge with a little extra milk and press down firmly to seal the log.
  5. Cut 3cm thick slices using bread knife into 12 equal portions. Place rolls, cut side down in a circular pattern in a 28cm round cake tin. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Turned out really well my daughter loves them . For my second attempt I was gonna make a cheese onion and garlic version. I am going to double the amount of cheese. Half red Leicester for colour and have extra mature cheddar for taste, Finley grated onion an garlic butter spread over the dough to replace the tomato puree. I have to say the possibilities are endless with this recipie. Many thanks for sharing. - 07 Jan 2015
