Family Food – Pizza Pinwheels

Ok, these are the ultimate easy-peasy summer picnic food for all the family.  Great for baby led weaning too. This recipe is for pizza pinwheels but experiment with your own fillings…the options are endless!


  • Packet of pre-rolled puff pastry (sheet)
  • tomato purée
  • 1 clove garlic
  • oregano and basil (dried or fresh)
  • mozzarella, cheddar or parmesan cheese
  • thinly sliced ham or other sliced meat (optional)
  • 1 egg for and egg wash (optional)


  • Preheat oven
  • Defrost the pastry if necessary and unfold the sheet onto a lined baking tray
  • Make a pizza sauce by mixing tomato purée, garlic and herbs
  • Smooth the sauce over the pastry sheet (leave about 1cm border)
  • Sprinkle ham (if using) and grated cheese on top
  • Roll the pastry up into a long roll
  • Slice around 1.5cm thick slices (use a sharp knife and it can help to put it in the fridge for a bit before slicing if its soft and squishy!)
  • Place slices on a baking tray and lightly brush each one with a beaten egg
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden and delicious.  Try to resist eating straight out of the over but they are so good while still warm!!

Other filling ideas – tuna melt (tuna, sweetcorn, red onion and cheese), spinach and ricotta, apple and cinnamon, your favourite jam and/or fruit, nutella (really bold!  But you can make your own homemade nutritious version!)
