Recipes Your Kids Are Sure to Love!

By Taghreed Odeh, Food Expert

I’ve always tried to come up with new recipes for my family. I find pizza a good nutritious source especially when I use milk instead of water in the pizza base.
Pizza Rolls is our daughters’ all-time favourite and I am sure your picky eaters will enjoy them! You can choose whatever topping they like and, trust me, they will come back asking for more!

Pizza Rolls
Ingredients
2 cups flour
¾ tbsp instant yeast
1 tbsp sugar
Pinch of salt
30g butter, cubed
¾ cup milk
¼ cup pizza sauce
2 tsp oregano
100g sliced salami
1 medium green pepper, thinly sliced
2 cups mozzarella cheese

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 200° Celsius
2. Grease 19cm x 29 oven-proof pan
3. Rub the butter into the flour until texture is crumbly. Pour in milk, add instant yeast, sprinkle in the salt and sugar
4. Mix until you get a sticky dough. Knead for five minutes, the dough now is soft. Cover and leave it to rest for 15 minutes
5. Roll dough into a triangular shape onto a floured surface using a rolling pin
6. Spread the pizza sauce all over the dough except for the sides and top off with salami and the green pepper. Sprinkle the oregano and then the cheese
