Below you will find a simple recipe for puff pastry rolls, which you can change depending on what you like and what you have in the fridge.

How you can modify the recipe for pizza roll-ups:

  • As a sauce, you can use a mixture of ketchup with tomato paste, ketchup alone or tomato puree. You can also prepare a white sauce by spreading thick 36% cream on the pastry with a bit of nutmeg, garlic, salt and pepper.
  • You can use cheese in slices or in one piece and grate it.
  • You can use any yellow cheese or mozzarella.
  • You can replace the ham with salami, pepperoni or prepare a vegetarian version.
  • Instead of traditional puff pastry, you can use light puff pastry or ready-made pizza dugh or tortillas. If you use tortillas, bake them only for a few minutes so that the cheese melts but the tortilla does not burn.
  • Before cutting, you can brush the top of the tortilla roll with oil to prevent the tortilla from drying out in the oven.
  • You can also add corn, peppers, olives, dried tomatoes, onion or other favorite additions to the rolls.
