Quark Pizza Roll, No-Flour, Gluten-free, Low-Carb yet absolutely yummy

You might remember last weeks post about how to make your own Quark Cheese. I was asked by some if I could also post some savoury recipes using it.
So here comes a rather unusual one, that we have tried, tested and loved: A Pizza Roll! The Twist, its dough is made without flour, which makes it gluten free and also interesting for those that try to eat low-carb. If you wonder about the spuds in the picture, we ate the roll rather because we love the taste and not because we follow dietary guidelines, sorry guys!

So here is the very simple recipe:
preaheat oven at 170C/340F
175gr/6 oz Quark (if you don't want to go into the trouble of waiting 3 days and can´t buy it in a local shop,  I am fairly sure it will work with cream cheese and a little added natural yoghurt, too. But I haven't tried it)
180 gr/ 6.4oz  of grated cheese (use one with some taste. The stinky ones work very well!)
3 eggs
Add some fresh grated nutmeg, ground black pepper and a little spicy paprika.
Mix it all well and spread it out evenly on a baking paper covered baking tray. (If you want to roll the pizza the paper is essential to help you start rolling it later!)
Bake for 15 minutes!
It should be solid when you take it out but not rock hard, now add what ever you would on your favourite Pizza. Ours had  very little tomato sauce( with Italian herbs, onions, and a dash of cream) red peppers, spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes and feta.
Then put it back in the oven for roughly another 15 minutes. The cheese should be melted and look a little crisp. Take it out of the oven and roll immediately. Use the baking paper to help you lift and get the rolling started.  Once rolled, you can serve it straight away.

With the added potatoes, it just about served us 4. If you don't want to serve a side of something with it, you will probably need 3-4 of those pizzas to serve 4 people!



  1. Wow, I have never seen something like this before! It looks really interesting and does sound tasty. How good is cheese, for so many reasons?!

    1. Cheese (and cafe latte) the reason I could never go vegan, it simply is too good!

  2. I need this in my life. I'm so missing low carb, gluten free foods & this recipe is going to be taken out for a trial run for sure (just as soon as I get a kitchen to cook it in).

    1. it is definitely worth a try! I made this for my mum this week, she is a coeliac and needs to eat gluten free! She said it´s heavenly and took notes for the recipe to try herself! You need a kitchen!

  3. Wow, looks amazing! Never thought of something like this before! It looks so easy even for a lazy cook like me hehe :D Thanks for sharing x

  4. Can cheetahs eat this pizza treat as well?

    1. I am afraid that could end with a visit at the vets....tomatoes, onions...maybe garlic depending on the cook and if they do survive that they will develop pancreatitis from the fat.... I am sure the pet store has some more appropriate treats in stock ;)
