Healthy salmon pizza pinwheels

Healthy salmon pizza pinwheels

I’m usually not a pizza person. Pasta, rice, and noodles would always be my preferred choices either outside or at home. But there are days like today, I just crave for something doughy and a little bit indulgent. And  somehow, pizza would always pop up in my head.

So to prepare for such days, I occasionally stock up a pack Spelt Pizza Dough in the fridge which, I know, would be perfect for a quick home-made pizza and save me from ordering one of those fat and unhealthy ones when the moment hits

The toppings would depend on what I have on hands or can buy quickly after work. For today, it’s salmon (thawed from freezer), canned artichokes, fennel bulb, capers, vegan mayonnaise and dill. So simple and so quick! My pizza pinwheels were ready for the oven in less than 10 mins.

Ingredients – 9 rolls

(2-3 rolls per serving)

1 pack (400gr) of store-bought Spelt Pizza Dough

250gr fresh salmon, skin removed

1 can (200gr) artichokes, rinsed and remove stems

1/2 fennel bulb, about 60gr , sliced

50-70gr vegan mayonnaise (this is nut-based so will not be suitable for those allergic to nuts. Use normal mayonnaise in that case)

1 tbsp capers, rinsed

1 handful of fresh dill


Salmon: slice into strips of about 2cm wide

Rinse artichokes, remove stems and shred roughly

Mix half of the capers and chopped dill into the mayonnaise.

(You can replace capers with some chopped olives or half a lime for similar level of acidity)

Roll out the dough

Spread the mayonnaise mix on top, followed by fennel, artichokes, and salmon



Canned artichokes and capers already contain lots of sodium. By rinsing them, we remove a large part of it to prevent excessive saltiness

Add ground pepper or cayenne powder if you like

Sprinkle the remaining chopped dill on top

Roll along the length of the sheet

Cut into about 9-10 pinwheels and arrange them in a non-stick baking tray

Preheat the oven at 225C. Bake for 15mins at 225C, then another 10mins at 200C



Result – A yummy and healthy pizza feast

Buon Appetito!!!
