  1. Step 1

    Combine flour, yeast, salt and sugar in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Add ¾ cup (185ml) warm water and the oil. Stir to combine. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 mins or until smooth and elastic. Place in a lightly greased bowl. Cover and set aside in a warm, draught-free place for 1 hour or until dough doubles in size.
  2. Step 2

    To make the spinach pesto, place the spinach, basil, pine nuts, parmesan, garlic and oil in a food processor and process until smooth.
  3. Step 3

    Grease a 10cm x 21cm loaf pan. Gently punch down dough. Knead for 2 mins or until dough returns to its original size. Divide into 8 portions. Roll 1 portion into a 5cm x 20cm rectangle. Spread with a little pesto. Sprinkle with spinach, fetta and tomato. Starting from 1 short end, roll to enclose. Repeat with remaining dough portions, pesto, spinach, fetta and tomato. Place rolls, side by side, in the pan. Cover and set aside in a warm, draught-free place for 30 mins to rise.

  4. Step 4

    Preheat oven to 200°C. Lightly brush the rolls with a little extra oil and sprinkle with the extra sea salt flakes. Bake for 10 mins. Reduce oven to 180°C and bake for a further 20 mins or until golden.
