Pizza swirls are great for snacks, lunches and picnics
These puff pastry pizza pinwheels are so easy to make and they are perfect for hungry kids to snack on.If you’ve got the tomato sauce or sneaky veg sauce already made up or in the freezer then they takes a matter of minutes to prepare. I made these and took them along as an after-school snack the other day and they were devoured by the kids.
They’re also a great lunchbox filler and are lovely in a picnic. Or have them with a green salad as I did for lunch while the kids were at school.
They're also a great recipe to get kids cooking as they are so easy. See more easy recipes for kids to cook.
Can you make these pizza pinwheels vegan?
It's very easy to make vegan pizza swirls.
Most ready made puff pastry is vegan - but always check the packet. Use grated dairy free cheese and voila! A delicious and easy vegan snack.
Can you freeze pizza swirls?
Yes. I often freeze these as they are so useful for lunchboxes. If I put one frozen in my son's lunchbox in the morning it's defrosted in time for his lunch.
Alternatively you can put them frozen in a hot oven for 5-10 minutes and they heat up beautifully.

I've made lots of variations of these pizza pinwheels over the years. Puff pastry really is useful as a way to get my kids to eat things they would otherwise turn their noses up at.
I usually have a roll of ready made puff pastry in the fridge or freezer.
