Pizza Pinwheels | Centenary Nannies and Babysitters

Pizza pinwheels are a great lunch box option or afternoon snack. They are easy to make and are a hit with the kids.



  • 375g pack ready rolled puff pastry, thawed if frozen
  • 6 tbsp. tomato paste or pizza sauce
  • 100g wafer thin ham
  • 100g mature cheddar cheese, grated
  • I egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp dried oregano or Italian mixed herbs


Step 1  Preheat oven to 200C/180C fan forced. Unroll the pastry onto a lightly floured surface and roll it out to 40 x 32cm. Spread a layer of tomato paste over it, leaving a 1cm border around the edges. Arrange the ham evenly on top, then scatter the grated cheese over.

Step 2  Starting at one of the short ends, roll the pastry up as tightly as possible. Chill in the fridge for 10 minutes or so.

Step 3  Take a very sharp knife and cut the roll into 12 equal slices, laying them flat on 2 non-stick baking trays as you go. Brush each pinwheel lightly with beaten egg and sprinkle over the herbs. Bake for 12-15 minutes until puffed and golden. Leave to stand for 5-10 minutes before serving.
