Pizza Rolls

Well, it tastes like Pizza but the shape is more tailored towards easy use as you can easily eat them with one hand while playing video games with the other. The ambitious gamer can prevent his character from dying on-screen while preventing himself from dying out of starvation off-screen, at the same time!

1. Gearcheck

  • Baking tray
  • Baking paper
  • for the sidequest: 0.5 liter / 16.9 fl. OZ measuring cup
  • for the sidequest: hand blender
  • for the sidequest: tablespoon and teaspoon (skilled players can just estimate the correct amount, so no measuring needed)

2. Farming Materials

Ingredients for the pizza rolls: salami, grated cheese, puff pastry, pizza sauce
Starting materials for pizza rolls.
  • Pizza sauce (can also be crafted, see optional sidequest)
  • Salami
  • Puff pastry
  • Grated cheese

Optional Sidequest:

  • Sieved tomatoes
  • 1 small onion
  • Oregano
  • Olive oil

3.1 Walkthrough for Sidequest "Pizza Sauce"

150 mL / 8.5 fl. OZ of sieved tomatoes are added to the measuring cup. Peel a small onion, cut it into small pieces and add it to the tomatoes. Attention: onions possess a passive skill that triggers when cut. It inflicts the debuff "watery eyes" and it will make the completion of the sidequest significantly harder.
Half a teaspoon of oregano and half a tablespoon of olive oil are added. Equip the hand blender to blend the whole mixture. The sidequest is now finished.

3.2 Walkthrough Pizza Rolls

The puff pastry is spread out. Use a spoon to spread the pizza sauce on top of the puff pastry. If you encounter any large bits of onion, you can remove them. Cut the salami into small pieces and distribute it evenly across the pastry. Do the same with the cheese. Finally, it should look like this:

All ingredients are in place. Now we have to coil it up.

The whole mess will now be coiled up. The pictures below give you a general impression how this is done. Basically you take a part of the pastry and fold it. The you take the folded part and fold it over the next part. When you are done you can press the ending part of the pastry against the folded part. Since the puff pastry is sticky, you can finish the coil without any loose ends.

The first fold to initiate the coil. The baking paper is still sticking to the pastry and is removed.

The resulting coil is now cut into horizontal stripes.

Pizza Rolls are being cut
A rogue class activated "Slice and Dice" to cut the pastry.

Fresh baking paper is put on a baking tray and the horizontal stripes are distributed on it. The "saucy side" is now looking up/down, see picture below. Add a bit of grated cheese and put it into the oven. At 190 °C / 375 °F, circulating heat, it will take approx. 30 minutes until the Pizza Rolls are finished.

That´s how Pizza Rolls look like before put into the oven. How they look afterwards is displayed in the first picture of this post.
