Gluten Free Pizza Rolls

You probably already know how awesome my gluten free pizza recipe and crust mix are (if not, you MUST read these reviews and try this epic GF pizza!), but did you know there are lots of other delicious things you can make with this versatile recipe? Indeed, you’ll be amazed at the gluten free calzones and baguettes you can make, too! So when a reader asked if my pizza mix could be used to make gluten free pizza rolls, I was sure that it would. She excitedly wrote me back with yummy photos from her experimentation, so I couldn’t wait to try for myself.

Gluten Free Pizza Rolls are the perfect proportion of sauce/toppings : crust and are great for lunchbox thermoses, too! gluten-free and dairy-free, easily made vegan

Ingredients:

OR

  • 1 1/2 cups of gfJules™ All-Purpose Gluten-Free Flour
  • 3 Tbs. milk powder (dairy or non-dairy) OR almond meal OR plain GF potato flakes
  • 1/4 tsp. oregano
  • Pinch or two of garlic powder (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

PLUS

  • 2 egg whites or egg substitute, room temperature (4 Tbs. or 1/4 cup whites)
  • 2 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 2 1/4 tsp. rapid rise yeast, gluten-free (1 packet – included with pizza crust mix) **for yeast-free use these ingredients instead:
    • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
    • 1 heaping teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/4 cup club soda instead of water
  • additional olive oil to brush onto the rolls
  • pizza sauce (use my homemade recipe) & toppings of choice (dairy-free cheese my family loves: Go Veggie®)

Method:

Bring all ingredients to room temperature. If warming egg whites, place whole eggs in a bowl of very warm water for a few minutes while gathering other ingredients.

Whisk together dry ingredients except yeast; set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine egg whites, olive oil, cider vinegar.

Using a stand mixer (preferably), slowly add in the dry ingredient mix.  Gradually add water or club soda (for yeast-free) to get a firm but very sticky dough that can still be spread.  If using yeast, pour in the yeast packet and beat on high for an additional 2-3 minutes.  (Note: this recipe may be mixed by hand in a large bowl, using a fork or wooden spoon).

How to Make Pizza Rolls gfJules.com

1- Liberally dust a clean counter or pastry mat with gfJules™ Flour.

2- Turn the dough ball out onto the floured surface and then roll gently to cover all sides so it’s not so sticky.

3-4 Gently roll the dough out in every direction to 1/8-1/4 inch thick.

5- Spread with pizza sauce to the edges of the dough.

6- Sprinkle toppings all over the dough.

7- Using a bench scraper or a spatula, begin rolling the dough from one side to the other to form a log.

8- Cut each roll approximately 2 inches across.

9- Lift each roll using a scraper or spatula and place in an oiled baking pan. Makes approximately 6 rolls.

Cover with foil and place in a warm oven (preheated to 175ºF then turned off works well) for 15-30 minutes.

    • The middle rack will be best — it will cook too quickly if it’s too close to the top. (Great question, btw!).

  2. Can I use potato starch rather than potato flakes? I’m still looking for gluten-free potato flakes (I live in Ontario, Canada). My son has food intolerances to gluten, milk, eggs, and almonds. Thanks!

    • Hi Julianne – potato starch is very different from potato flakes, so I wouldn’t recommend making that substitution here. Can you find potato flakes on line? I’ve ordered the Idahoan brand here in the States, but there has to be something GF available. Maybe your local grocer could order for you? Or you could look for the non-dairy milk powder as another option.

    • If yours are like mine Brianna, my kids ask for pizza more than once a week, so if I give in, this is a great option to switch it up a bit. And the kids love them!
