Preparation -- 10 minutes

Roll out the puff pastry on a cutting board lined with parchment paper. The parchment paper prevents the dough from sticking to the cutting board. Divide 4-5 tablespoons of pesto over the puff pastry.

The easiest way to do this is using a spoon or silicone brush. Divide the slices of ham on top and finish with grated cheese. Preheat the oven to a temperature of 180 degrees celsius or 350 degrees fahrenheit.

Finishing the ham and cheese pinwheels -- 20 minutes

Roll up the puff pastry again, do this tightly but make sure the dough does not break. Cut the roll into slices about 2 centimeters thick. Place the puff pastry rolls cut side down on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
