Healthy Cooking - Pizza Swirls
Mrs Atkin and Mrs Rodger are going to be bringing you some wonderful healthy cooking videos over the coming weeks. They are kicking things off with yummy pizza swirls.
250g self-rising flour
1 tsp Baking powder
¼ pint semi-skimmed milk
100g grated mature cheddar
100g chopped bacon, chicken or ham
Italian herb seasoning
Preheat your oven to 180C/ gas mark 4
Gently combine the flour, baking powder and margarine in a bowl. Rub them together until they resemble breadcrumbs
Gradually add the milk and use a palette knife to stir the mixture
Once the dough begins to stick to the knife use your hands and bring the dough together
Roll out on a floured board
Spread the tomato puree onto the dough
Sprinkle over the remaining ingredients
Roll up the dough so it looks like a Swiss roll
Cut into slices and place on a tray lined with baking paper
Cook for 10-15 minutes until golden brown
You can change some of the filling to make different swirls – you could use pesto instead of tomato puree, you can substitute basil, tomato and peppers for cheese and ham. You could even try cooked vegetables as a filling such as carrot, leek or courgette.
The swirls can also be a sweet treat by using apple and sultanas as a filling.
