Let me start by saying that while I have categorised this as a recipe it is SO easy that does it even qualify as a recipe? I don’t know! Despite this, I’m going to share how you can make these dairy-free cheese and tomato pinwheels!
Ingredients for cheese and tomato pinwheels:
Puff pastry (one sheet) – we use the Jusrol puff pastry as this is dairy free and suitable for vegetarians and vegans
100g tomato puree (or dairy-free pesto or blended roasted red peppers)
200g dairy-free cheese (we use Violife grated)
Method for baby led weaning pinwheels:
Unroll your sheet of puff pastry.
If you’re using a block then you’ll want to roll it out as thin as possible basically, and make a rectangle shape.
Spread on your tomato puree, dairy-free pesto or blended roasted red peppers.
Spread the cheese over the top.
Add some herbs if you or your little one like them. I find basil and oregano work really well, and give these more of a pizza pinwheel flavour.
Roll up your puff pastry sheet.
Slice into 1/2 inch rounds.
Place on a baking sheet, lined with baking paper.
Bake at gas mark 6 (200C) for around 21 minutes. Check a few minutes before and remove once they are nicely browned.
Remove to a cooling rack or enjoy hot fresh from the oven!
Want to use a different pastry?
I have a great, simple, cheap shortcrust pastry recipe that is great, however, I do feel that the flaky puff pastry works best!
Puff pastry rolls up best for pinwheels, and the flaky texture is absolutely delicious too!

Recipe for dairy free pinwheels:
My 4 year old daughter Daisy was a little unsure if she enjoyed these initially. I think the texture was a little bit strange for her. However, I have tried again and she enjoyed them and was more interested. Also, if I remove the dairy-free cheese and swap it out for more vegetables Daisy seems to love these even more.
These keep for at least 3 days in the fridge. These dairy-free cheese and tomato pinwheels are suitable for freezing once they are baked. They can then be re-heated, if you want to, in the oven for around 8-10 minutes. Don’t leave them too long or they WILL burn!
