Makes 10-12 Pinwheels

A fun way of serving pizza, these are easy to hold and eat and perfect as party food, espeicially for kids.

1 1/2 cups
all-purpose/plain flour
1 tsp
1 tsp
3 tbsp
1 tsp
instant yeast
a pinch of
baking powder
warm milk for kneading
(approx. 1/2 to 3/4 cup)
grated mozzarella/cheddar cheese
keema filling
(recipe link in instructions below)

First, prepare the filling. I used THIS recipe.

Mix all the dry ingredients and the oil, then slowly start adding the warm milk a little at a time. Get it to a soft dough, the softer the better, knead it very well for at least 8 minutes or more if possible.

Dab a touch of oil all over the dough, then cover it and place it somewhere warm. Leave it to rise to double its size, takes about 30 minutes to an hour depending on the weather.

Once risen, punch it down, give it a quick knead and then roll it out into a rectangular shape of about quarter inch thickness. Spread your filling leaving a border of about 1 inch all around. Sprinkle a bit of cheese (mozzarella preferably) on the filling, then from one end, roll the pizza dough like you would a swiss roll, enclosing the filling inside. Now slice using a knife, tucking and adjusting any area that seems like it's spilling out. Keep the slices at less than 2 inches, remember they will bulk up a little bit after baking.

Place the pinwheels on a greased tray and let them sit for about half an hour. Then preheat the oven at 180 C, bake for about 10 minutes. Take the tray out and sprinkle extra cheese to top each pinwheel. Bake until the cheese melts and is golden. Serve hot! :)

Salams... How much in grams is 1-1/2 cups flour??

You can but the problem is the chocolate may melt and leak out and burn because it is not fully enclosed in the dough, so I would not recommend it for this recipe.

thanks for your reply,
but the problem is when i bake it right away after I prepare the dough, it comes out perfect... its only after i freeze it that I get these problems :(

but I will try changing the yeast as well, thx :D

I tried this recipe, n it was amazingly good .. but I freezed some extra ones, however when i Baked it after it didnt turn out so nicely, it seemed that it didnt bake properly, the dough part looked a bit transparent seemed like it wasnt cooked well enough and didnt raise much. can you suggest somthing plz..

thank a lot

W/salaam, sounds like there was a problem with the yeast you used, try testing the yeast to see if it works well or use a different brand. :)

The same question again Fouzia, how long do I bake them on stove top? And how will I do the grilling part?fg

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

On stove top they will take the same time as they would in an oven, remember to preheat the pot before putting them in. As for the grilling part, that will be tricky because on the stove top there is no top heat to help get a good colour.

W/Salaam, make the pizza base using any of my pizza recipes, roll it out and then bake it partially for just around 8 minutes. Then let it cool and freeze wrapped well until needed.

Salams sister...could you please let me know if I can freeze these after completely baking them snd then zap it in the microwave when I need to use them? Thanks a lot :)

W/Salaam, yes that is absolutely ok.

Aa.i hav tried this many times a masha Allah always been appreciated. thank you so much. jazakAllah. my moms going sumwhere via almost 7 hr flight and i want to send these to sumone as a you think they'll remain good till she reaches home. its almost 7 hr flight +/- 30 min.

W/Salaam, thanks! I am concerned about the cheese content and the duration of the flight. Did you take into account the waiting period for the flight and/or delays that may happen? You could freeze them solid and then pack them into the luggage right at the very last moment before she leaves the house. That way they should be able to last the journey. :)

thank you so mch for the reply. yes, i did include the waiting period. so can i freeze them the way, u hav instructd, like half cook, or uncooked?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Half-cook them so that they do not get all sticky and messy when they thaw as they would if you leave them uncooked. :)
