Sunday's Pizza Pinwheel $5.99

Pizza Pinwheel

Here's a fun alternative to the Sunday night pizza we're treating you to. This rollup idea can be done with so many varieties, like artichoke, red pepper, spinach and provolone, or pepperoni pizza or 4 cheese special - or skip the pizza idea and go with ham and swiss or ... well, the possibilities are endless!

1 refrigerated bread dough in a can (i.e. Pillsbury) $1.99
corn meal (optional)
desired pizza toppings like:

  • sauce $1.00
  • meat $1.50
  • veggies .50
  • cheese$1.00

total $5.99

Unroll bread dough to cover as much of a large baking sheet as you can - use rolling pin to flatten to as thin as possible. spread a small amount, no more than a cup, of pizza sauce, then desired toppings in similar, small amounts, on top of entire rolled out bread dough. Top with cheese - no more than a cup!

start rolling from one long edge to other long edge to create the longest "tube" you can from the crust available to you (match short edges as you roll so it's not like a triangle or anything).
Seal edge shut by pinching dough...rub with corn meal if available. Roll the entire tube so seam is at the bottom.

Bake at 400 degree for about 25 minutes until raised and golden brown. Cook for about 3-5 minutes longer than you think so that the center cooks thoroughly. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before cutting.

Slice into slices about 1 inch thick.
Enjoy the pretty colors of this really fun pizza alternative!

  1. Kim,
    I am so curious to see your picture of your pizza pinwheel. I have never made anything like this, and was completely clueless what it was supposed to look like. I have a feeling it doesnt look right, however, it was really good. I made half with cheese, tom sauce and pepperoni, and the other half with cheese, tom sauce and spinach. We used marinara as a dip, and they all went. They were however, a bit doughy, so I think I should have rolled out the dough more. Im going to try it again.
