Method -

I. Making the dough

  • Warm the water
  • Add the sugar & mix
  • Add the yeast & mix for a minute
  • Set aside for 5 minutes . It should turn frothy
  • Mix flour, salt, mixed herbs (optional) & olive oil & mix well
  • Add the yeast-water
  • Mix well and knead of 10 minutes to get a soft dough
  • Let it rest for 45 minutes-1 hour or until it doubles up in volume.

II. Making the pinwheels

  • Preheat oven to 180C or 360F
  • Punch down the dough in the middle. Make to portions of the dough
  • On a flat surface, sprinkle some flour
  • Roll out one portion of the dough as much as possible vertically (I mean, one side longer than the other)
  • Apply sauce on the top surface leaving all the edges
  • Distribute the minced garlic, chilli all over the rolled out dough
  • Add vegetables of your choice. Do not add too much though or it'll be difficult to roll it.
  • Grate cheese on top of the veggies
  • Sprinkle oregano/chilli flakes on top.
  • Start rolling like a cigar from the breadth (shorter side) along the length.
  • Once you finish rolling, seal all sides with your fingers.
  • Cut the roll into smaller rolls. Depends upon how big your roll is. I'd say you can cut about 2 inches wide rolls.
  • Grease & line a baking tray with butter paper.
  • Arrange these pinwheels on the tray. Maintain distance between 2 rolls as they still expand.
  • Leave them for about 20 minutes to rise again.
  • Give the rolls a milk or butter wash. (Drizzle melted butter/milk on the top)
  • Bake at 180C/360C for 15-20 minutes (timing varies with ovens, monitor closely)
  • Remove, drizzle more cheese on top (optional) and herbs & serve!
