Recipe: Pizza Pinwheels

Here's a follow up to Melissa's request on our forum for toddler party foods. I suggested making turkey and cheese pinwheels which got Melissa thinking. She went to and found an easy and delicious recipe for Pizza Pinwheels.

1 (8 ounce) can refrigerated crescent roll dough
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
24 slices pepperoni
1 (14 ounce) can pizza sauce

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

2. On a large baking sheet, pinch the 8 crescent roll dough triangles into 4 rectangles. Layer each rectangle with 6 slices of pepperoni and even amounts of mozzarella cheese. Roll tightly lengthwise and slice each into 4 or more pieces.

3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 12 minutes. Serve with pizza sauce for dipping.

Melissa said, "The kids and adults loved them! I doubled the recipe and still returned home with an empty dish. is a fabulous website for finding recipes. There are several search options. My favorite is one where you can type in the ingredients you have on hand and it will provide you with a list of recipes that call for those particular ingredients."

Now that's the kind of recipe finder I need. Thanks for the update, Melissa!
