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.
Many gluten free pizza rolls later … my kids, my husband and I are all big fans of this fun recipe! Now that school lunches are on my mind again, I’m thinking these would be a fantastic fit for a thermos, too! They’d also make great party food. The possibilities are endless.
Roll whatever pizza fillings you love into these fun rolls and bring on the pizza with even more yummy sauce and perfectly proportioned crust in every bite. It’s like a savory cinnamon bun — revolutionary!
Gluten Free Pizza Rolls
- 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
- 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®)
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).
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.
Brush rolls with olive oil to remove excess flour and also help them to brown lightly during the bake.
Preheat oven to 425ºF and bake covered for 10 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 5 minutes. Top with additional sauce before serving, if desired.
