Pizza Pinwheels

Soft, homemade dough with delicious toppings and melted cheese makes pizza a super tasty meal. Everyone from kids to adults will like this to the core as these pizza pinwheels are small, bite sized, appetizing pieces and will be vanished within seconds.

I usually make veggie or chicken pizza every alternate weekend for my daughter who is a big fan of Italian dishes like the pasta or pizza. Instead of buying from shops, I make them at home using homemade sauce or store bought as time permits. These Pizza pinwheels I made them for the first time when I saw these small cuties on a cookery show on some channel. I thought, next time instead of making a pizza, will try out making these pinwheels by rolling the pizza dough. I am thrilled with how well they turned out. These can be stored in the freezer without baking and when needed, thaw them and bake as required. Pizza Pinwheels are a super easy snack which can be served to kids as an after school snack or to guests.

More than 10 varieties of sauces are available. So you can experiment with any sauce of your choice. You can add your own choice of toppings and can make them in big or small sizes. If kids are involved in the making, they will enjoy thoroughly. Try this out and let me know.
For Pizza Dough:
  1. All Purpose Flour- 2 Cups
  2. Yeast- 1 tbsp
  3. Sugar- 1 tbsp
  4. Salt- as required
  5. Warm water- ¾ Cup/ required enough to knead the dough
  6. Olive Oil- 2 tbsp
For Toppings:
  1. Capsicum- 2 nos
  2. Onions- 1 no
  3. Chicken Sausage- 7- 8 nos
  4. Mozzarella Cheese- 1 Cup

  1. Combine warm water and yeast and let it sit for some time until the yeast bubbles up.
  2. Add in oil, salt, and sugar. Mix the flour using the above-made yeast mixture slowly until it becomes a sticky dough.
  3. Continue mixing for another 5- 6 minutes and cover with a cling wrap and let it sit for 15- 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Chop the onions, capsicum and cut the sausage into small round discs.
  5. Flour the countertop and roll the dough into a large rectangle.
  6. Top it with the homemade pasta sauce and spread to all the corners. Spread the chopped onions, capsicum and sausage on top and cover with mozzarella cheese.
  7. Starting with one of the long sides of the rectangle, roll the dough tightly, pinching the seams to close at the end. Slice into 1” sections using a sharp knife.
  8. Place the pin wheels on a baking tray and bake for about 12- 15 minutes.Serve hot along with marinara or ketchup.
