Princess Ella is only going to school three days a week, but already I’m struggling with what to pack in her lunch box. When she comes home and tells me about all the processed, packaged goods the other kids have, it’s hard to know how to get her excited about her own homemade… treats. Although, apparently her friends are envious she gets carrot sticks. Who needs a meat pie and a mini can of Sprite. Does anyone else remember the mini cans? Anyway…

During a playdate with my cousin the other day, she shared this recipes with me and I’ve adapted it slightly to suit us. But I just love the fact it has only two ingredients for the base. Strangely, the more “adult’’ fillings are more popular with the girls than the child-friendly ones.

2 ingredient pizza scroll dough recipe

 

pizza scrolls recipe

BASE:
1 cup of Chobani Greek-style yoghurt
1 cup of self raising flour

FILLING OPTIONS:
– Vegemite and cheese
– Italian tomato cooking sauce (passata), bacon, Italian herbs and cheese
– Ham, pineapple and cheese
– Pie apple, cinnamon and chopped pecans
– Baby spinach and cheese

Preheat oven to 180C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Combine the Chobani yoghurt and self raising flour and mix until it forms a ball.
Turn it out onto a floured bench and knead for five minutes. I found the dough to be sticky each time, so had to keep adding additional flour.
Roll out into a large rectangle with a rolling pin until even thickness. Sprinkle or paste ingredients over the dough, being careful not to tear it.
(TIP: You may want to melt the Vegemite and stir it in with the cheese before spreading on. Ingredients, like the bacon mentioned above, will also need to be cooked first.)

Roll the dough up, starting at the short side. Cut into 3cm pieces and place them cut side up on the baking tray.
Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 20 minutes.

What other fillings have you tried or heard of?

    Yum! But I’m going to have to use some other brand of Greek yoghurt… it seems it’s only available in NSW! 😉 x

      Yes, we have the same issue here, Carmen. Hopefully they start getting it into stores in other states soon. They sent us a big pack of it and it was just delish! 🙂

    Last time I tried to make pizza base, it didn’t turn out that well. I’ll try yours, it looks a lot easier and it’s bound to be nicer (can’t get any worse!)

      Hope it worked better for you, Tat. As long as I keep adding in flour as I knead it, this one seems to be working well for us. 🙂

  3. I use the same recipe and it is fabulous!

    I cant believe the shit some kids are sent to school with. And the parents wonder why they have “behaviour problems”…

    • Kel says:

      I’m with you, Sharon. Ella continually comes home and tells me about all the treats the other kids have. I don’t mind one treat, but a whole lunchbox full is a little excessive! The concentration levels of those children really suffer. x

    gosh that sounds so yummy! And yep I find making school lunches so boring – but our boys love home made cooked food. Will have to give these a try 🙂

      I hope they worked well for you, Lisa. They’ve become a bit of a regular lunchbox item here! Ella just can’t get enough of them – which is a nice change! 🙂

    They look yummy and so easy with only two ingredients! Will have to try it out. Such a great idea for school lunches. It’s so hard trying to keep up the variety and resist the fight against too much processed food.

      I agree, Tracy. I think when we find ourselves time poor, the temptation for the processed packaged stuff is pretty high. As long as I’m ultra organised on a Sunday, we seem to be able to avoid it. Mind you, I have no idea how I’ll go once I have two children at school full time. One child three days a week is challenging enough! LOL! 🙂

    I was one of those mothers who packed crap into my daughters lunchbox. I actually believed that because they were for kids they were automatically healthy such as museli bars but when I actually read the ingredients I was horrified. My son will be getting homemade snacks! Thanks for recipe.

    • Kel says:

      Pleasure, Teresa. I hope the kids like them.
      And I don’t think you’re alone. My lunch box as a kid was filled with lots of packaged food. It just seemed the right thing to do. And as you say, if it’s for kids it must be good for them, right! 🙂

  7. Thanks for sharing this. Looks brilliant! I just need to get my hands on Chobani yogurt, or would another brand of natural yogurt do?

      You could pretty much use any Greek yoghurt. I just used Chobani, because they supplied me with a stash of it! And it’s nice! 🙂
