So it’s been a little while since my last recipe post and I know how much you guys love trying new things, so I thought I’d share a super easy recipe that is great for work lunches or picnics. Get ready to fall in love with a twist on an Italian classic with my Italian Prosciutto Pizza Rolls recipe! You’ll be shouting “that’s Amore” from the rooftops once you try this moorish treat.
What I also love about this recipe is that the pizza rolls can be eaten either hot or cold, so for the mums out there, this is a quick and easy recipe for the kids school lunches that they will actually love! Check out the Italian Prosciutto Pizza Rolls recipe below –
*Makes approximately 12 rolls
- 2 soft gourmet pizz bases
- 250 grams tomato purée (you can buy this or make your own!)
- 250 grams prosciutto
- 50 grams kalamata olives (pitted)
- 100 grams cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
- 150 grams grated mozzarella cheese
- 1 tablespoon olive oil to drizzle on top
- Preheat your oven to 180 degrees (fan forced).
- Open your pizza bases and spread your tomato purée on them evenly, covering the entire base.
- Top the pizza base with the prosciutto (shredded) and sprinkle the olives, tomatoes and mozzarella on top.
- Roll up the pizza base into a scroll and trim the ends to ensure that they have even lines.
- Cut the long scroll into 6 even rolls and arrange on a baking tray lined with grease proof paper.
- Drizzle the rolls with the olive oil and top with more mozzarella. You can add extra salt and pepper if you wish.
- Bake the rolls in the oven for approximately 20 minutes or until golden brown.
There you have it, a quick and easy recipe that is great for work lunches and will satisfy all of the family – talk about killing two birds with one stone (figuratively, not literally!)
Just a side bar as well – if you do have an intolerance or are vegan, a great alternative for this recipe is to substitute the mozzarella for dairy free cheese – it’ll be just as tasty!
