Pizza Scrolls

Quite often I make mini quiches for the family or a catering order.  After the pastry shells have been cut out,  there's so much pastry left over.  It's always bugged me that the pastry goes to waste.  Just recently I had another catering order for 80 mini quiches.  With all that pastry left over,  I thought it was time to make something else from the scraps.  The following recipe is something I made up as I went along.  The result was yummy little pizza scrolls that my family enjoyed.  The rest were frozen for lunch box treats.

Scraps from puff pastry sheets
Sauce - I used tomato and bbq combined
Grated cheese
Mixed dried herbs.
Flour

Flour your kitchen bench then knead the pastry until it forms a ball.

Using a rolling pin ( or your hands ),  roll out the puff pastry until it resembles an oblong that's a few millimetres thick.  It might be a bit tough to work with.  When this happened,  I gave the pastry a 5 minute rest then continued rolling.

Spread the sauce over the pastry leaving 1 centremetre around the edges.

Sprinkle the herbs over the sauce and add the grated cheese still leaving an edge.

Roll the pastry lengthwise into a long log.

Cut the log into 2 - 3 centremetre pieces and place onto a lined baking tray.

Pinch the outer edge of the scroll to secure.

Cook at 180 degrees Celsius for approx, 20 minutes.

  3. Ditto - pastry scraps always get used in our kitchen in much the same way.

  4. I'm in the USA and have a question. Pastry- do you mean the same as pie crust or pie shell?
    They look delicious!
    Thank you

    1. Hi Rhonda. It's puff pastry I use for making meat pies. Not short crust pastry which is used in dessert pies.

      In Australia puff pastry comes in packets of six square sheets.

    2. Thank you Wendy. Puff pastry is not used as much in the US. I have had it before and know what it is and will look for it the next time I shop at a big store.

  5. Thanks Wendy!
    I ended up making little custard tarts with my leftover puff pastry scraps the other week. Next time we will try these scrolls. They look yum.
