  1. Preheat oven to fan 180C/conventional 200C/gas 6. Unroll the pastry onto a lightly floured surface and roll it out to 40 x 32cm. Spread a layer of pasta sauce over it, leaving a 1cm border around the edges. Arrange the ham evenly on top, then scatter the grated cheese over.

  2. Starting at one of the short ends, roll the pastry up as tightly as possible. Chill in the fridge for 10 minutes or so.

  3. Take a very sharp knife and cut the roll into 12 equal slices, laying them flat on 2 non-stick baking trays as you go. Brush each pinwheel lightly with beaten egg and sprinkle over the herbs. Bake for 12-15 minutes until puffed and golden. Leave to stand for 5-10 minutes before serving.

These are very easy to make and delicious. I did them as a starter for an Italian style dinner party. I didn't need all of it so I left the rest in the fridge until then next day and had it with my lunch!

I made these for the kids to nibble on at my Bar B Q last week. They were a great success with the adults also. I would definately make them again.

I make something similar, substituting the tomato sauce with pesto then sprinkle over a tin of salmon, some chopped spinach & either pine nuts or pumpkin seeds. We call them Salmon swirls & my daughter has them in her lunch box, I'm going to try the pizza ones tho for a change!

I absolutely love this recipe. Have made it twice now. Amazingly simple and fab for bonfire night. I tried baking in in a casserole dish and did a tare and share version, great for dinner with a fresh soup.
