My husband is obsessed with these pizza rolls.
Last week my neighbor Barbara invited us to her birthday party. So I made pizza rolls a day before, that we took along with. While the rolls were in the oven, my husband, Jo, kept walking from the living room to the kitchen and telling me how heavenly they were smelling. Shortly after I finished baking them, Jo insisted on having one, even though he had just eaten the Namibian beef stew. I gave him one and he ate it in a blink of an eye.
One Minute later, he wanted to have another pizza roll. I was like: hell to the no!! You guys, you might think that I was being hard on my husband, but Jo is capable of eating up all the 12 pizza rolls in 3 seconds.
One time my mum in law baked 20 German doughnuts and Jo ate all of them up secretly with one of his friends. You guys can already imagine how furious my mum in law was. Thus why, I was just trying to protect these irresistible pizza rolls. After all, I baked them for Barbara’s birthday party. At the party they disappeared quickly.

Pizza rolls step-by-step-instructions
Start off by cutting the ham into slices.
Cut the sun dried tomatoes into smaller pieces as well. If you’re using fresh oregano leaves like me, then rinse the leaves and cut them into smaller pieces.
In a bowl combine tomato paste, cream cheese, oregano and dried tomatoes.
Using a spoon, mix until well combined.
Next lightly flour a cutting board and roll out the puff pastry. Using a spoon, spread the cream uniformly thorough over the surface of the pastry.
Next align ham slices on the pastry spread with cream
and sprinkle with grated cheese.
Carefully roll the pastry and refrigerate it for at least 5 minutes.
NOTE: It’s very important to chill the pastry roll, because it makes it easier to cut when it’s cold. You can also prepare the roll a day before and chill it to use it the next day.
In the meantime preheat the oven to 200°C and line a baking sheet with a parchment paper.
Using a sharp knife cut the pastry roll into 12 equal slices.
Arrange the rolls on a baking sheet lined with a parchment paper. Don’t forget to leave enough space between the rolls for them to expand.
In the second bowl, whisk the egg and brush each roll top lightly with it.
Bake for 20 minutes or until nicely golden brown.
