Puff Pizza Pinwheels

This pinwheels are great treat for people who love puff, pizza and samosa. It is a combination of all 3. I prepared this pinwheels for many times at home but really don't remember when I bookmarked this recipe from which site.

The stuffing used in this recipe can be changed or altered as per personal preference. I used carrot and boiled, mashed potato for stuffing. I have also tried it with other vegetables but I found preparation of the below stuffing was easy. If you use vegetable stuffing, you need to roll puff sheet tightly than the normal rolling. Otherwise vegetables get jammed at the end or move towards the unrolled space.

Preparation Time: 15-20 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 20 pinwheels

5) Apply pizza sauce over it. Leave an inch space at one end of the sheet.

6) Now, spread the mixture from the mixing bowl on the puff pastry.
7) Sprinkle cheese on top of it. Add more cheese if required.

9) At the end of rolling, apply little water where we left the space (as said in step 5) and seal it properly.

10) Now, cut the rolled puff pastry into 1 inch pieces.
11) Place them in baking tray with even intervals. Make sure to leave sufficient space between pinwheel since they enlarge while baking.
