  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese , grated
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Parsley , chopped
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper
  • 1 sheet Puff Pastry
  • 4 oz Pancetta , cooked


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • If you are using frozen puff pastry remove a sheet from the freezer and let it sit out for 15 - 20 minutes.
  • In a bowl combine the olive oil, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, parsley, salt, and pepper.
  • Take your puff pastry sheet and roll it out slightly. This is just to flatten it a little so 2 passes of the rolling pin should be plenty.
  • Spread the Parmesan mixture over the puff pastry leaving a little in the bowl to brush the top with later.
  • Sprinkle the cooked pancetta over the puff pastry.
  • Gently roll the puff pastry up starting on a long side to create a long roll.
  • Cut the roll into pieces about 2 inches thick.
  • Place the rolls on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and brush the tops of each roll with the last of the Parmesan mixture.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the puff pastry looks fully cooked in the middle of the pinwheel spiral. Note: After the first 20 minutes check the pinwheels often to make sure that they aren't overcooking on the bottoms.
