Pesto Pinwheels

  • 1 puff pastry sheet, thawed
  • 1/2 cup pesto
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3/4 cup cooked prosciutto, chopped (optional)

This crowd-pleasing appetizer comes together in no time, making it a wonderful option for gatherings of any kind!  Feel free to swap out other cheeses for the mozzarella (a sharp provolone would be tasty) or use bacon instead of prosciutto.  The possibilities are endless…

Preheat oven to 400°F.  Unroll puff pastry sheet into a rectangle and spread pesto evenly over the entire surface.  Sprinkle mozzarella, pine nuts, and prosciutto if using evenly over the pesto.  Using the long side, roll up the pastry.  Brush beaten egg along the pastry edge and press together to adhere.  Cut crosswise into 1/2” rounds.  Place on baking sheet and brush tops with beaten egg.  Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
