Healthier & More Nutritious Danish Pizza Rolls (Pizza Snegle)

Makes 32 pizza rolls 


1. 350g flour
2. 150g graham flour
3. 10g yeast (or 3g dry yeast)
4. 1 TBS honey or dried date paste
5. 1/2 tsp salt
6. 100ml lukewarm fresh skimmed milk
7. 50ml natural yogurt 0.1% fat
8. 1 egg
9. 75ml olive oil
10. 2 carrots grated
11. 140g tomato paste
12. 200g grated mozzarella cheese
13. 200g minced beef marinaded with salt and pepper
14. 1 TBS oregano
15. 1 egg for glazing (optional)


1. In a mixer, add 10g yeast, 100ml lukewarm milk, 1 tablespoon honey and mix well.

2 Add 50ml milk, 50ml yogurt, 75ml olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and one egg and mix well.

3. Add grated carrots and mix well.

4. Add graham flour and mix for sometime to get the gluten out.

5. Slowly add in the flour and run the mixer for 15 minutes or until you get a well-kneaded dough that doesn't stick to your finger, is elastic and easy to work with, but is not dry. It should be completely smooth and separate easily from the mixing bowl. Make sure the dough is kneaded sufficiently. Best using a mixer as the dough needs to be kneaded for a long time.

6. Cover and let the dough rest for four hours at room temperature.

7. Divide the dough into two.

8. Sprinkle some flour and roll one piece of dough into a square piece about 5mm thick using a rolling pin.

9. Spread tomato paste on it.

10. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on it.

11. Sprinkle minced beef on it.

12. Roll it up.

13. Cut it into 16 pieces of 2cm thick with a sharp knife.

14. Place them on a tray laid with a baking sheet.

15. Cover and let it rise for an hour (optional)

16. Brush with egg.

17. Bake in a preheated oven at 175 degree Celsius for 15-20 minutes or until golden.

Additional Information:

This is another classic and favorite among Danish kids. It is healthier than English sausage rolls. As C likes this a lot and it is cheaper to make it myself, I have decided to learn to bake this. This is the first time I have baked this. J liked it and C liked it too. If you are in a hurry and can't wait for the dough to rise slowly for four hours in step 6, use 25g of yeast and reduce the dough resting time to one hour.

You can substitute milk with water. You can substitute olive oil with butter. If you don't want to add carrots, you must add 100ml more liquid (milk or yogurt). It is great for lunchboxes too. You can substitute the lukewarm water with lukewarm milk.


You can freeze it down while they are still a little lukewarm. Take them out the night before or a few hours in advance and let them thaw in the fridge or for an hour on the kitchen counter. Spray them with a little water and warm them in a preheated oven at 175 degrees fan for 4-5 minutes or in a toaster.
