Mish Delish Good Food Blog

I’m a professional food stylist and currently prepping my own series of cookbooks and a cooking show. In my food catering business, Mishka La Mushka, I catered private and corporate functions and events big and small, designed food in hat boxes for the Spring Racing Carnival and created too many themed kids birthday parties to mention. But now I love food styling and sharing my fun food ideas with mums wanting to create restaurant-quality meals at home, for kids and family. So let’s get cooking!

This weeknight winner is adaptable to any tastes. I often make it on a Monday to use up leftovers as that’s all I generally have in the fridge anyway.

Pizza Roll
(Serves 4)


You’ll need:

1 qty of pizza dough (see recipe below)
2 cups mozzarella (grated)
12 slice ham/prosciutto
1/2 cup spinach
1/2 cup fresh basil
Olive oil
Sea salt

Make the dough first.

1 tsp active dry yeast
2/3 cup warm water
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup olive oil
2 cups plain flour

  • Place yeast & water in a bowl and allow to stand until mixture starts to bubble.
  • Add flour, salt & oil and mix to form a smooth dough.
  • Knead dough for 5 mins or until elastic (if you are lucky enough to have a mixer with a dough hook, by all means use this instead)
  • Put the dough into a clean, lightly oiled bowl, cover & allow to stand in a warm place for 20 minutes or until doubled in size.
  1. Preheat the oven to 220C.
  2. Roll out the dough into a large circle, flouring the bench as required.
  3. Decorate with half of the mozzarella, the ham, spinach and basil then put the remaining mozzarella on top.
  4. Starting from the end gently roll up the pizza. Tuck the ends underneath and transfer the roll to a lightly floured baking tray.
  5. Baste the roll with a little olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 -25 minutes and let it cool before cutting into slices.
