  1. Step 1:

    Place the flour, salt, sugar, butter, yeast and water into a mixer with a dough hook.

  2. Step 2:

    Mix into a soft dough and knead for 5 minutes.

  3. Step 3:

    If mixed by hand, knead for at least 10 minutes.

  4. Step 4:

    Roll out the dough to a 30x23 cm rectangle. Then spread over the pesto be careful not to over fill as this is likely to spill out when baked.

  5. Step 5:

    Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over the top of the pesto and then roll up the dough like a swiss roll and seal along the seam.

  6. Step 6:

    Cut into 12 equal slices, place onto a greased baking tray, and prove until double in size.

  7. Step 7:

    Preheat the oven to 190°C (170°C fan, gas mark 5)

  8. Step 8:

    Lightly sprinkle additional mozzarella over the top of the pinwheels and bake for 25 minutes until golden brown. Once baked place on a cooling rack and leave to cool.
