Pizza Swirls

As you know Emily and I absolutely love to be in the kitchen, baking, cooking or rustling up something yummy. For her fourth birthday, the only thing that she asked for was a new cookbook, which of course I got for her. We are yet to bake anything from it, but Emily has asked that we make sausage casserole next week which is one of the recipes from her new cookbook. We have been trying to come up with some quick and easy dinner ideas at the moment though. Wednesday is one of our busiest days, we are out from 1ish till about 5. So dinner is always a mad rush on a Wednesday. I have been trying to make use of my slow cooker, but Emily isn't really keen on filling dinners. She tends to fill herself up at lunchtime and then want a snackish type dinner.

With that in mind, I figured I would try making something new for Emily to try. One thing I don't think I mention much on here is that Emily is really fussy, getting her to try something new is near on impossible, she hates the idea of a new food. I have found she is more willing to try things if she has helped to make them, which is a plus. I had some ready roll pastry, and some leftover tomato puree (from making pitta pizza earlier in the week) so I figured we would give pizza swirls a go.

cheese of your choice
any additional toppings.

how to
First of all, roll out your pastry. once you have done that spread out the tomato puree, this is Emily's favourite part, she squishes the puree from the tube and then uses the back of a spoon to spread it. Next add your topping, since this was the first time we have made them, we went for just cheese, cheese is always a winner in our house. Emily has said she would like to add ham to next time. Once you have your toppings on the pastry, roll the pastry back up, and then cut it into about 1cm rolls. Spread them out on a baking tray and then bake for 25 minutes on 180.

The girls really enjoyed these with some cucumber sticks and some chips. Emily can't wait for us to make them again sometime next week. Let me know if you decide to recreate this recipe and what you paired it with.
