Crusty Seeded Dinner Rolls

Yield: 6 rolls

Crusty Seeded Dinner Rolls


  • 2 cups Pamela’s Pizza Crust Mix (320 gr.)
  • 2¼ tsp yeast
  • 1 cup + 2 TBSP warm water (and up to 1 TBSP extra if needed)
  • 2 TBSP olive oil plus more for oiling hands
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3 TBSP seeds of choice, mixed together


Put all ingredients, except seeds, into the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix on low until all incorporated, scraping down the sides of the bowl (if too dry, add extra TBSP of water), and beat on medium about 30 seconds. Scrape down dough and form a ball in the bottom of the bowl. Lightly oil and smooth dough, cover bowl with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm, draft-free spot, until double in size, 1 to 2 hours.

Half an hour before forming the rolls, pre-heat oven to 475° with rack in the top third of the oven. Place a pizza stone on the rack if you have one.

TO FORM ROLLS: oil hands, scoop out about ½ cup dough and gently form into a ball. Sprinkle about 1½ tsp. seeds on both sides of the ball of dough (over a separate piece of parchment paper to catch the falling seeds), and place on parchment lined sheet pan. Re-oil hands and repeat process until all 6 rolls are formed. Let shaped rolls rise in a warm, draft-free spot, 15 to 20 more minutes.

Place sheet pan on pizza stone (if you have one), or rack, and bake 18 to 25 minutes until brown. Let rest on wire rack at least 10 minutes before serving.

    This looks amazing! I am wondering though if there is a way to make these with the pancake mix? I am not able to purchase the pizza mix in my area (plus cost prohibitive), is it possible to use the pancake mix at all?

      Hi KJ,
      This recipe would not work the same with the Baking & Pancake Mix. You can purchase the Pizza Crust Mix on Amazon if you can’t find it near you. Here is the link to the large bag: Pizza Crust Mix

    Will this work using Pamela’s artesian flour in place of pizza crust mix

      Hi Callie,
      This recipe was formulated specifically for the Pizza Crust Mix, so you will not be able to substitute. Perhaps use this recipe instead: Artisan Hamburger Buns (you could put dough in muffin tin instead of hamburger bun size).

    This recipe is fantastic. I sometimes alter it a bit adding the seeds in the dough, instead of coating them. I also spoon the dough onto the baking sheet and then form with wet fingers. Thank you so much!

    Can this dough be prepared the night before, and allowed to “rise” in the refrigerator overnight, before forming and baking the rolls?

      Hi Virginia,
      Yes, preparing the dough the night before should work fine.
