Pizza spiral

Makes 12 spirals

Preparation time: 10 minutes, plus resting time

Cooking time: about 20 minutes

  • 600 g store-bought bread dough, cold
  • 125ml sun-dried tomato pesto
  • 200 g chopped mushrooms, fried
  • 12 basil leaves, torn
  • a handful of grated mozzarella

1. Roll out the cold dough into a large rectangle. Spread the pesto over the dough, sprinkle the mushrooms, basil and mozzarella evenly on top and roll up the dough into a tight roll. Using a sharp knife, cut the rolled-up dough into 12 portions.

2. Grease the cavities of a muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray and place a dough spiral with the cut side up in each cavity. Cover with a tea towel and allow to rise in the pan until they double in volume. If you use ice-cold dough, it will take slightly longer to reach room temperature and to rise.

3. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Bake the spirals for 20 minutes or until done and the cheese has melted. Serve hot or at room temperature.
