Pizza Pinwheels Recipe (Pizza Rolls Recipe)

Pizza Rolls Recipe
Its baking marathon at home, I love baking and the feel of it.With the yeast PJ gave that works wonders I love baking breads and pizzas now.The main advantage homebaking calls is you can customise the base, topping as per your preference and I am glad that I am able to sneak in wheat flour wherever possible especially for pizzas, its hard enough to find out much difference.I just modified the basic pizza dough recipe and made the dough for this pinwheel.

I wanted to try some variation in pizza and this pinwheels came to my mind as I had not tried making such rolls after garlic rolls.This came out soo good with a crusty top and soft goey inside, yumm!! Hubby enjoyed the warm pizza rolls , it is such a bliss when had hot / warm with a dip of tomato sauce....!! I made these yesterday and couldn't wait to share so here am with this post :)

My Notes:

  • The dough shouldn't be sticky...if so then ur dough is watery so add in a little more flour. The dough shouldn't be very tight, if it is then the pizza will be hard.
  • Roll it tight else the filling wouldn't be intact.
  • I refrigerated the dough just to make it stiff so that cutting would be easy.Slice carefully else the filling may fall apart.
  • Baking time may differ in microwave, may be it cooks faster so keep an eye after 12mins then proceed accordingly.
  • The resting time totally depends on the type of yeast you are using and the climatic conditions of your location.
  • You can replace pizza sauce with tomato sauce.
  • If you stuff more then while cutting you will not get the slices neatly.
  • If you don't want the top to be crusty(crispy) then just bake for 10-12mins.
