This unusual dough is worth giving a go, especially if you already are equipped with a bread machine. It's made with plain yogurt and wheat flour and rolled out, layered with a quick pesto and fresh goat cheese, then rolled up into a log and cut into slices. You will need to reshape the slices a bit with your hands before baking. These little pinwheels are golden brown and utterly delicious.

  • 50 milliliters olive oil
  • 1 egg (beaten organic)
