The Dough

  • 2 1/4 cups gluten-free all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or any sweetener of choice
  • 1 cup warm water

The Filling

  • 3/4 cup pesto homemade or store-bought
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese omit for vegan or replace with vegan cheese


  • In a large bowl combine flour, yeast, garlic powder, and salt. Stir to combine.
  • To the same bowl oil, maple syrup and water. Mix until it all starts to come together then knead the dough with your hands until you can easily form a smooth ball of dough (about 2 minutes). If the dough is too wet, add a touch more flour. If the dough is too dry, add a touch of water until just right.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • On a cutting board or countertop dusted with flour place the dough ball. Using your hands and/or a rolling pin, flatten the dough into a large rectangle about 1/2" thick.
  • Slather the dough with pesto and then sprinkle evenly with mozzarella cheese (if using).
  • Starting at one short end of the rectangle, fold the edge inward and continue rolling until you have one long cylinder.
  • Slice the log of dough in half, then slice each half in half, followed by slicing each quarter in two until you have 8 rolls.
  • Place each roll into a greased oven-proof skillet or cake pan (around 9"), allowing the rolls to touch each other (it should be a nice snug fit). Optionally, cover and let rise in a warm and dark place for 30 minutes before baking.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the rolls are firm, turning golden on bottoms and sides and the filling is bubbling and browning.
  • Enjoy!
