Olive and bacon pizza scrolls
  • 1
    Combine ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat; simmer, covered, for 5 minutes or until rhubarb is tender.
  • 2
    Turn pizza dough onto a work surface dusted with potato flour. Roll dough into a 25cm x 30cm rectangle.
  • 3
    Spread tomato paste over dough, leaving a 1cm (½-inch) border; sprinkle dough with bacon, olives, oregano and ½ cup of the cheese. Firmly roll dough from long side to enclose filling; trim ends.
  • 4
    Cut roll into 12 slices; place slices, cut-side up, in a single layer, in pan.
  • 5
    Bake scrolls for 20 minutes; top with remaining cheese. Bake a further 15 minutes or until cheese has melted and turns golden brown. Sprinkle with oregano leaves to serve, if you like.


Scrolls can be served warm or cold. This is a great recipe for kids’ lunchboxes. You can leave out the olives and oregano if your child doesn’t like those flavours, and just make them using bacon and cheese. Store scrolls in an airtight container for 1 day, or freeze, wrapped in plastic wrap, for up to 3 months. To reheat: discard plastic, and wrap frozen scrolls in foil; place in a moderate oven for 30 minutes or until heated through.
