  • 1 cup Self-raising flour
  • 1 cup Greek yoghurt
  • 8 - 10 Slices Ham for filling
  • 1 cup Grated cheese I like a mixture of cheddar and mozzarella
  • Extra flour for rolling


  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. (400 degrees F / gas mark 6)
  • Line a baking sheet with tinfoil or baking parchment. If using tinfoil, spray lightly with cooking spray to prevent sticking
  • Sift the flour into a bowl and add the yoghurt
  • Mix well with a wooden spoon until the mixture comes together in a ball. If the mixture is too sticky you can add extra flour (1 tablespoon at a time) until the desired consistency is reached
  • Sprinkle the work surface with a little extra flour and roll the dough into a rectangle shape.
  • Place the slices on ham on the dough and sprinkle with grated cheese
  • Roll into a sausage shape and then cut into pinwheel slices
  • Place onto the prepared baking tray.
  • Place into the oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until golden.


If you don't have self-raising flour you can add 1 teaspoon of baking powder for each cup of flour when you sift the flour into the bowl.
This makes a quite sticky dough and you may need to add a little extra flour to make it easier to handle.  Don't add too much though - the dough should be very soft.
I personally don't think these need any egg-wash, but you could brush with beaten egg before baking if you prefer.
