Ingredients

For the Dough

  • 2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 Cup chopped Spinach (Palak)
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1.5 Cups of Lukewarm Milk (More or less might be required)
  • 1 tsp Instant Dry Yeast
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Lukewarm Water
  • 4 tbsp Unsalted Butter melted and at room temperature
  • 1/4 Cup of Dry flour for rolling.

For the Filling

  • Pizza /Tomato Sauce as needed
  • Mozzarella Cheese as needed
  • Cheddar Cheese as needed (Optional)

Instructions

For the Dough

  1. In a bowl add in 1/2 cup of lukewarm water and sugar and dissolve.
  2. The water should be just warm. You should be able to dip your finger in it. If too hot it will kill the yeast.
  3. Now add in the yeast, mix and let it bloom for 10 minutes.
  4. After 10 minutes, if your yeast mixture has not bloomed you would need to discard and start again.
  5. Now in a large bowl or a stand mixer add in the flour, salt and chopped spinach.
  6. Give everything a quick mix.
  7. Add in the bloomed yeast mixture and mix.
  8. Slowly add the milk and make a semi soft but still firm dough.
  9. Knead the dough well with the heel of your hand incorporating butter as you go.
  10. After 5-10 minutes the dough would be nice and elastic.
  11. Cover it lightly with a cloth and let it sit in rise for 1.5 hours.

Making of the Pizza Pinwheels

  1. After 1.5 hours you would see the dough has risen well. See the pic below, My dough was more than double in size.
  2. Punch in the dough to deflate all the air and give it a gentle knead one more time.
  3. Divide the dough into equal portions.
  4. Using some dry flour, Roll out each into 5-6 inch square or circle.
  5. I was able to get roughly 7 equal size balls. I kept the size small so that it is easier to assemble.
  6. Spread some pizza sauce on it leaving 1-2 cm of the edges.
  7. Spread the cheese and filling of your choice.
  8. Now lift one edge and roll it up as tightly as possible.
  9. Seal the edges when you are done.
  10. Keep this on a tray lined with parchment paper.
  11. Similarly repeat for the rest and line them on the tray by keeping some distance.
  12. Let this rise again for at least 1 hour or you can let it slow rise in the fridge for 4-5 hours.
  13. Once you are ready to bake preheat the oven to 200 Deg C.
  14. Using a sharp knife cut the pinwheel at least 1.5-2 cm thick.
  15. Line them on tray and brush or spray with milk.
  16. Bake in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the top is nice golden brown.
