Corn Crusted Pizza Pinwheels | Easy Snack for kids

Pizza Pinwheels was one of the most awaited snacks during the
recent Christmas break that kiddo had. Ever since I told her I would make it,
everyday she would start the day with the same question “are we making it
today?” .. The day we actually made it, we had it as a snack rather than
for dinner. She loved it with a cup of tea, while little one had the non-spicy
version and loved it too. surprise, surprise, my inlaws and mom who are not so
into baked goods also liked it quite a bit.


All in all, a snack that has endless possibilities for filling. I
am sure to make this for her birthday too (as per her ‘orders’ :D) . So do make
it and let me know how you and your family liked it.

Prep time : 15 mins | Standing time (rise time : 1.5- 2

Bake time :20 mins | Makes : 1 dozen medium sized

Cuisine : American , type : Snack or appetiser


  • Unbleached
    bread flour – 2 cups ( I used king arthur brand)
  • Instant
    yeast – 1 tsp
  • Sugar
    – 1 tsp
  • Warm
    water – 1/3 cup + little more for kneading
  • Olive
    oil – 1/4 cup
  • Salt
    – to taste (about 1/4 tsp) 


  • Pasta
    sauce – 3/4 cup
  • Boiled
    corn – 1/4 cup
  • Diced
    capsicum / bell pepper – 1/4 cup
  • Diced
    onions – 1/4 cup
  • Dried
    herbs – 1 tsp (I used oregano, basil and thyme)
  • Salt
    – to taste
  • Red
    chili powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Shredded
    mozzarella cheese – 1/3 cup
  • Olive
    oil – to brush the bakes



  1. Proof
    the yeast with warm water and sugar. (I proof the yeast every time
    although its instant, just to be sure). Once done, add the oil and whisk
    it well. 
  2. Sieve
    flour and salt twice over, make a well / dent in the flour and add the
    proved yeast + oil mixture. Knead to a smooth dough adding any additional
    warm water if necessary. Cover with a wet kitchen towel and place in a
    draft free environment till it doubles (I keep it in an oven with the
    light on). My dough generally doubles in an hour, however that week
    it was chilly and took about 90-95 mins to double.
  3.  Punch
    down the dough a bit and divide  the dough into two parts (One
    portion went to make a lovely veggie margarita type pizza for the husband
    and me). Knead the other portion lightly.
  4. On
    a floured surface, roll into a rectangular sized sheet. 
  5. Spread
    the pasta sauce, sprinkle  the veggies, cheese, dry herbs, and top it
    with cheese. 
  6. With
    the shorter end of the rectangle facing you, roll into a tight roll (like
    a cinnamon roll) and press the ends to seal. Roll all through the length
    of the pizza sheet. 
  7. Clingwrap
    and refrigerate for 20 – 30 mins (this is an important step, dont miss,
    else you would be left with messy pinwheels). Towards the end of this 20
    mins, Preheat oven to 180 deg C. / 375 deg F.
  8. With
    a sharp serrated knife, cut thickish roundels, place the pinwheels with
    the cut portion facing upwards on a greased / lined baking sheet
  9. Bake
    for 12-18 mins till you get golden brown pinwheels, keep an eye after the
    15th min to avoid hard pinwheels. 
  10. Serve
    warm as a snack or for dinner with any soup
