These were so unbelievably delicious. I surprised myself with this one! They make the perfect side to your dinner, but are very filling! Two of these was enough for a meal for me.

This is one of those “must try” recipes, and really was not difficult to put together. So yummy!

Makes 10 wheels.

Dough Ingredients

  • 10 oz. mozzarella cheese

  • 5 oz. almond flour

  • 1 tsp. baking powder

  • 1 egg

Filling Ingredients

  • 200 g. frozen spinach

  • 1 bunch parsley (about 12 stems), finely chopped

  • 1/2 onion, chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 200 g. feta cheese

  • 2 eggs

  • pepper to season

  1. Preheat oven to 400F and line your baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat.

  2. Defrost your spinach and squeeze all the water out. Add to a mixing bowl. Make sure to keep the moisture to a minimum or else you will end up with soggy wheels.

  3. Add the rest of the filling ingredients (parsley, onion, garlic, feta cheese, eggs and pepper) to the bowl and mix with a spatula until well incorporated.

  4. In a separate bowl, microwave the mozzarella for the dough in 30 second increments, stirring in-between. You should only have to microwave for a total of 90 seconds.

  5. Add the almond flour and baking powder to the dough, and stir a bit to coat the cheese in the flour. Add your egg and mix together.

  1. Using your hands, knead the dough for a minute or two until the ingredients are well incorporated. I knead the dough until you can’t really see the almond flour and egg in the dough anymore.

  2. On your parchment paper or mat, roll out the dough into a rectangle. Mine turned out to be 15″ x 12″, roughly the size of my silpat mat.

  3. Spread the filling evenly on the dough, leaving a bit of dough without filling on one of the short ends to seal the dough after you’ve rolled it. Make sure the filling almost reaches the ends of the other 3 sides of your rectangle.

  4. Start rolling the dough from the short end (the one with more filling). 10. Slice the log into 10 even pieces and lay flat on your parchment paper or silpat mat. Transfer to your baking sheet and bake at 400F for 20-25 minutes.
