  • Pizza dough pre-made or make your own
  • 1 cup passata/marinara sauce
  • 250 g grated mozzarella or a mozzarella/cheddar mix
  • Your favourite toppings


Preheat your oven to 220C/200C Fan /390F and line two baking trays with baking/parchment paper.

    Arrange your pizza toppings

    • Lay or roll out your pizza base out in a rectangle on a lightly floured work surface or sheet of baking paper. If you have made your own pizza dough, roll it out into a large rectangle about ¾ cm thick.
    • Spoon the passata/marinara sauce over the base of your pizza, making sure you get right to the edges.
    • Then, sprinkle over your toppings and cheese. If you want, you can add different toppings to different sections to give yourself more variety.

    Make the pizza pinwheels

    • Starting at the long edge start roll the pizza up until you have a neat spiral. Using a sharp knife, cut the spiral into pieces about 2-3cm thick.
    • Place them on your prepared baking trays, reshaping them if you need to.
    • Pop them in the oven and bake for approximately 15 minutes. They’re ready when they’ve turned a nice golden brown colour and the base is properly cooked.
    • Remove from the oven and enjoy!
