  7. Spread pesto evenly over bread dough using back of Small Mix ‘N Scraper®. Sprinkle basil leaves and cheese mixture evenly over pesto.
  8. Starting from a long side, carefully roll up dough rectangle to form a tight roll. Cut roll in half widthways. Cut each dough half widthways into 10 even sized slices using Santoku Knife on Bar Board. Transfer pinwheels onto Medium Bar Pan, spacing apart evenly and neaten into rounds if necessary.
