Thaw: 40 min   Prep: 20 min    Bake: 15 min   Servings: 20 pieces


1 puff pastry sheet ( 1/2 17.3 oz package), thawed at room temperature

2 tbsp pesto

1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, grated

1/2 medium roasted pepper, chopped

2-3 sun dried tomatoes, chopped (the sun-dried tomatoes can be substituted with the chopped olives)

pepper to taste

1 egg, whisked


On a lightly floured surface, unfold the pastry sheet. Slightly roll it out with a rolling pin. Spread the pesto on top of the sheet. Top with the cheese, roasted pepper, sun-dried tomatoes, and pepper.


Roll up like a jelly roll.


With a sharp knife, cut the roll into 20 1/2 inch slices, and place them on a parchment lined large baking sheet. Brush the sides of the swirls with the egg wash.


Bake in the 400 F preheated oven for about 15 minutes.

Serve warm.
