What kid doesn't love pizza? I've made pizza a zillion ways with a dozen different doughs but this one takes the cake. These little pinwheels call for use of puff pastry, which makes them extra yummy and crisp, not to mention super easy to put together. Just fill, roll, cut and bake. Make them as big (or as little) as you'd like, and fill them with whatever floats your fancy. I bet they'll appease even the most finicky eater in your family. Let's get started.
1 pouch of puff pastry, thawed
(I used pastry squares that came in a 1 lb. 6 oz pouch with 10 square sheets)
1/2 cup of your favorite marinara or pizza sauce
1/2 to 1 cup shredded cheese
- sliced black or green olives
- bell pepper slices
- pineapple chunks
Granted, most of these toppings would be detected (and quickly rejected) by my kids who consider themselves pizza puritans. Just cheese and sauce please! If you are blessed with experimental eaters, then by all means, pile on the toppings.
Preheat oven to 375. Lightly dust your surface with flour, then lay out your puff pastry dough.
Spoon about 1-2 teaspoons of sauce and spread it leaving off 1 inch so the pastry will close onto itself once its rolled.
Spread your cheese and toppings and roll it all up. Pinch the back together.
Cut evenly into circles. Lay them facing up and flatten slightly with the palm of your hand.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
