Super Skinny Pizza Pinwheels

Here's the Dish

You don’t have to blow your ‘healthy eating’ all together when it comes to get-togethers with friends, or in this case a Super Bowl party… And you certainly don’t have to stay away from food altogether! The key is to bring your own healthy dish to pass, (and if it makes you feel ’strange’ you don’t even have to tell anyone it’s healthy!) These pizza pinwheels are sure to be a crowd pleaser with healthy eaters (and not-so healthy eaters) alike! It’s a great dish to pass, and can be made ahead of time, and re-heated in the microwave or oven just before serving.

It’s estimated that American’s consume an extra 1,000 calories per person on game day! These are certainly a much better snack choice than many of the high calorie dishes being passed during the big game!

Bring these Super Skinny Pizza Pinwheels to your Superbowl get together, and you can be sure to get the party started!

Method

The estimated total time to make this recipe is 25-30 minutes.

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil, and spray with non-stick cooking spray.  Spread the dough out over the prepared baking sheet, gently pulling on all four corners of the dough to stretch the dough out a bit.

2

In a small bowl, mix together the sauce, seasonings, pepperoni, parmesan cheese, and mozzarella cheese. Spread mixture out over dough, spreading evenly with a spatula.

3

Starting at the long end of the dough, start rolling until dough is rolled into a long skinny log. Cut into eight even rolls.

4

Arrange the rolls swirl-side-up on the baking sheet, and bake for 15-17 minutes or until slightly golden brown. Serve warm with pizza sauce for dipping if desired!

Ingredients

1 pkgReduced fat crescent roll dough1
1/2 cup Pizza or spaghetti sauce
1 tsp Basil/oregano mix or Italian seasoning blend
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
1/4 cup Turkey pepperonis, sliced into quarters (or you could use mini turkey pepperonis)
1/8 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cupShredded mozzarella cheese

1 On seamless crescent dough: Pillsbury makes this product, but if you can’t find it, you can buy reduced fat crescent rolls, and use a rolling pin to seal the ’seams’ together.

Katie's Tip!

Bring these Super Skinny Pizza Pinwheels to your Superbowl get together, and you can be sure to get the party started!

These would be perfect for game day or any day in need of a tasty appetizer! I was eying some pizza wheels at the store the other day but they were dripping in grease and I turned the other way… These on the other hand I want to sink my teeth into!
