During self isolation I’m trying to find new ways to keep Frankie entertained & today with the leftover food we had in the fridge I decided to make pizza pinwheels. Occasionally, at the end of the month before we’ve done our ‘big shop’ we make ‘tortilla pizzas’ basically whatever meat is left with anything we want on a wrap to make a pizza, I’ve seen other mums do it with puff pastry so we gave it a go and they were so yummy & Frankie loved making them too!
- Pre-rolled puff pastry sheet
- Tinned tomatoes/Pasta Sauce/BBQ Sauce (basically any sauce you like on a pizza, we used tinned tomatoes)
- Grated cheese (we used mozzerella & cheddar)
- Meats (we had pepperoni, serrano ham, heck chicken sausages which I pre-cooked, ham & chorizo)
- *optional* olives, pineapple etc etc. anything you like on a pizza basically!
How we made ours!
- Pre-heat your oven to 180/gas mark 6
- Unroll the pastry onto the baking sheet and lightly roll it out to a rectangle with a sprinkling of flour to make it easier
- Smear on your base sauce, we used tinned tomatoes
- Scatter on the cheese
- Lay on the meat & toppings you’ve chosen on top, we used serrano ham, pepperoni, ham, olives & chorizo
- Once you’ve added all of your toppings, use the short end to TIGHTLY roll to the other end as tight as possible
- Chill in the fridge for 15ish minutes
- Use a sharp knife to cut the roll into 10ish sections
- Lay them flat on 1 or 2 non stick baking trays
- Brush over lightly with a beaten egg
- Cook for 12-15 minutes until the pastry looks puffed and golden
- Leave to stand for 10 minutes before serving
I cut one into small parts and Jack also enjoyed it for lunch too!
Other ideas for puff pastry pinwheels
