Pizza Pinwheels

I am in charge of lunches for LBA and SoBA.  Most days that means a ham and turkey wrap for LBA and PB&J for SoBA.  Lately, I turned them on to sandwich pepperoni and mozzarella cheese sandwiches.  They seem to like them.

Of course, Friday is pizza movie night at the launchpad.  On occasion we will also have special dinners downstairs for a big sporting event, with nachos, little hot dogs and other snacky items.  I think these would be a great addition.  Recipe Via BuzzFeed.

Pizza Pinwheels
Makes 14 to 16
Recipe by Lindsay Hunt


  1. 1 17.6-ounce package puff pastry, thawed to room temperature 
  2. ½ cup marinara 
  3. 3 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese 
  4. ½ pound sliced pepperoni

Preheat the oven to 400º F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.

Roll out one sheet of the puff pastry on a floured surface, using a rolling pin to make it slightly larger.

Top with half the marinara, half the pepperoni, and 1 cup of the mozzarella. Starting at one of the narrow ends of the rectangle, roll the dough into a tight log, pressing down to seal. Slice into 1-inch pieces and place on the baking sheet, leaving 2 inches between each pinwheel.

Repeat with the remaining sheet of puff pastry, marinara, pepperoni, and 1 cup mozzarella to make more pinwheels. Sprinkle each pinwheel with the remaining cheese.

Bake the pinwheels until they are golden brown and the puff pastry is cooked through, 18 to 22 minutes. Serve hot.
