Pizza pinwheels

Pizza pinwheels



  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 90g butter, cut into cubes
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • Plain flour, to dust
  • 3 tbpsn tomato paste
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 150g ham, chopped
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten


Preheat oven to 200C. Line a tray with baking paper.

Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl. Use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the milk. Use a round-bladed knife in a cutting motion to mix until evenly incorporated and the mixture begins to hold together.

Turn the dough onto a lightly floured bench and gently knead (about 5 minutes) until smooth. If the dough is sticky sprinkle with a little more flour.

Roll dough into a 20cm x 40 cm rectangle and spread with tomato paste. Sprinkle with ham and cheese.

Turn the dough so the long end is in front of you and roll up. Slice into 10-12 pieces and place side-by-side on the tray.

Brush with egg and bake for 25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into it comes out clean.


  • Placing the pieces close together helps them rise (like scones).
  • Add a can of drained, crushed pineapple to the topping if your kids are into sweet-savoury tastes.
  • Keeps for a day or two at room temperature for lunch boxes or after school snacks.
