Along with snacks for the kids lunchboxes, I also like to have snacks for Big L’s lunchbox too. He doesn’t mind a range of cakes and cookies, but for a savoury change, I made him some pizza pinwheels. These are very similar to the cheese and bacon pinwheels we made a few days ago.
After defrosting the puff pastry sheets, I spread one with tomato pizza sauce, and the other with BBQ pizza sauce. To these I added grated cheese, shredded ham, and sliced mushroom. The kids can help with this bit. Sometimes I add other pizza ingredients like pepperoni and pineapple, but I didn’t have these today.
Each sheet of pastry is rolled up into a log, and the edge pinched together to seal it. Then the log is cut into slices, and each slice is transferred to a baking tray covered in baking paper. I add a little grated parmesan to the top of each pinwheel before putting them in the oven to cool until the pastry is golden and the cheese is melted.
These make for a delicious snack or light meal. They freeze well, but for a crispier finish, after defrosting them, I would pop them in the oven for a little while to reheat.
