Process

  • PIZZA DOUGH
  • In a bowl, mix together all dry ingredients – all purpose flour, instant yeast and sugar.
  • Add oil in this and gradually keep adding warm water to this batter.
  • Mix everything and knead this to get a small dough for 5-8 minutes properly. This will activate the yeast.
  • Cover this with a cloth or cling film, preferably in a warm place for an hour atleast.
  • It will turn double in size in an hour. Knead it again on a working bench with some flour.
  • PINWHEELS TOPPINGS
  • Dust the working bench with some all purpose flour.
  • Roll the dough into a rectangular shape neither very thin nor too thick.
  • Smear some marinara sauce all over the base evenly.
  • Sprinkle the chopped veggies, grated cheese, dried oregano and black pepper powder over it respectively in this order.
  • Begin with one side of the rectangle, gently start rolling the dough and press the edges to seal it properly.
  • Wrap the dough in parchment paper/plastic sheet and let it refrigerate for few minutes.
  • Once it is out from the refrigerator, cut it into thick slices using a sharp knife.
  • Grease the baking tray with oil and pre-heat the oven at 180 degree Celsius.
  • Grease the pinwheels with some butter and bake them for 20-30 minutes until the edges are golden brown.
  • Let them cool for a bit and you will notice that they will get firm. Serve fresh.
