Cheese, tomato and basil spelt wheels

These are yummy and they're so healthy too!



Makes about 24 wheels

Ingredients:

  • 500g Spelt flour 
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 7g dried yeast
  • 300g warm water
  • 2 tablespoons of Tomato purée 
  • A small handful of fresh basil chopped finely
  • 75g Grated strong cheese, we used cheddar cheese.
  • 1 teaspoon of salt

Method:

STEP ONE

Mix the tomato puree with the freshly chopped basil in a small bowl and leave on the side until STEP SIX.

STEP TWO

Mix the Honey and yeast with about 100ml of your warm water in a cup or a glass. Leave for 5 minutes.

STEP THREE
 
Put the flour and salt in a large bowl and mix together.
 
STEP FOUR
 
Pour the yeast, honey and water mix into the flour and mix well, then add the rest of the water and knead for 5 minutes.
 
STEP FIVE
 
Place your dough on a clean, well floured surface and, using a rolling pin, roll it out so it is about half a cm thick.
 
STEP SIX
 
Using the back of a spoon spread the tomato and basil paste on your bread as you would with pizza.
 
STEP SEVEN
 
Sprinkle your grated cheese over as evenly as possible.
 
STEP EIGHT
 
Carefully roll your dough up like a Swiss roll - this is why you need a well floured surface.
 
STEP NINE
 
Carefully and gently, with a bread knife is best I have found, cut in to 2cm thick slices and place each slice down on a baking tray. 
 
STEP TEN
 
Pre-heat the oven to 200 C and leave them to rise for 20 minutes.
 
STEP ELEVEN
 
Put the pinwheels in the oven for 25 minutes on a middle shelf.
 
ENJOY!
