Pepperoni Pizza Pinwheels

Pepperoni Pizza Pinwheels













Looking for that party favorite that everyone loves?  Who doesn’t love pizza?  Or maybe you need an appetizer that goes with a wonder Italian meal.  Or maybe some kid friendly food that kids will go nuts over.  Try my Pepperoni Pizza Roll ups!  They are easy to make and delicious. Think about pepperoni and mozzarella cheese rolled up in pizza dough and brushed with a garlic butter glaze.  YUM!













 Pepperoni Pizza Pinwheels

1 can (13.8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Classic Crust Pizza Crust 

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning 

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 

1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese 

1/2 cup sliced pepperoni 

1 cup marinara or pizza sauce 


Preheat oven to 425°F. Sprinkle work surface with a little flour.













Remove dough from can and press into a large rectangle. Drizzle a little olive oil on the dough and spread it with a spoon or your hand. 













Sprinkle dough with garlic powder and Italian seasoning making sure you cover the entire area. Add the two cheeses all over the top. Add more if you’d like but don’t fill too much or it will be hard to roll.











Starting at the long end, roll dough up tightly to form a log. Slice into 1-inch pieces.  Start rolling from the long edge, you want your final roll to be long and narrow.  Try to get it as tight as you can without feeling like you're squishing it.












Use a very sharp serrated knife and slice it into 12 pieces (about 1 inch slices). Place pieces on a greased or parchment lined baking sheet.













 Place rolls on lightly greased baking sheet. 













Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle a little more mozzarella cheese on top of each roll up.   













Return to oven and continue baking for another 5 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and dough is golden brown.  












 Serve with warm marinara sauce for dipping. 













NOTE:  Try other toppings such as sausage, mushrooms, onions, ham, and peppers.













Great appetizer or snack or even a meal with a side salad!
