  • 6 strips bacon fried and crumbled
  • 17.6 ounces puff pastry block (500g)
  • Some plain flour for dusting
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste / puree
  • 3.5 ounces strong cheddar grated (100g)
  • 5.2 ounces mozzarella diced (150g)
  • 1 beaten egg


  • First off, fry the bacon until super crispy, put on some kitchen paper and leave to one side.
  • Pre heat the oven to 180º.
  • Dust your work surface with a little flour and roll out the pastry into a large rectangle that is the thickness of a £1 coin. Trim the edges so that they are straight.
  • Evenly spread the tomato puree over the pastry, leaving a 1cm gap at the edges. Crumble the bacon over the top of the puree and then the cheeses.
  • Roll the pastry and filling and then brush a little beaten egg on to the edge of the pastry so that the edges stick together.
  • Slice the roll in 2 cm intervals then place each pin wheel on to a baking sheet.  Brush with the beaten egg.
  • Put in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the pastry is golden brown.



Serve warm straight from the oven, or let cool and store in an air tight container.
