Fun, quick, and dippable!

Pizza Pinwheels

  • 1 (8 ounce) can refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 24 slices pepperoni, chopped
  • 1 (14 ounce) can pizza sauce
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. On a large baking sheet, pinch the 8 crescent roll dough triangles into 4 rectangles. Seal really well!! Layer each rectangle with a couple teaspoons of the chopped pepperoni and even amounts of mozzarella cheese. Roll tightly lengthwise and slice each into 4 or more pieces.
  3. Roll should look like this before slicing into 4 pieces.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 12 minutes.
  5. Serve with pizza sauce or ranch for dipping.
We thought these were fun and easy! We don't like pepperoni so I just chopped up some turkey deli meat and used a couple teaspoons on each roll-up, along with a couple T cheese (ham would be great, too). You have to be careful not to over-fill, or log will be messy. These are great for a lighter main dish or a fun appetizer/after-school snack. To make rolls easier to work with, freeze can or crescent rolls 15 minutes before working with them.
