Pepperoni Pinwheels

We made some Pepperoni Pinwheels for a late evening snack yesterday. Pepperoni Pinwheels are so easy to make. They are especially great when you have company over for a big game or just for munching in front of the TV.

All you need is a can of crescent dough, butter, pepperoni, cheese, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. The marinara sauce can be used as a dip. I have here a can of Recipe Creations. It's the same dough as the crescent rolls dough but it's in one big piece. If you cannot find the recipe creations dough, you can also use the crescent rolls dough too. All you need to do is press the pre cut lines together before use.

First, unroll the crescent dough out from the can.

Then, brush on some melted butter.

Sprinkle on some garlic powder and some Italian seasoning. I bought my Italian seasoning premixed. If you would like to mix your own, it's a combination of dried basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, sage and marjoram.

Arrange the thinly cut pepperoni pieces in a single layer on top of the dough.

Sprinkle some shredded Italian cheese over the pepperoni pieces. The Italian cheese that I bought is a combination of Mozzarella, Provolone, Parmesan, Asiago, Fontina and Ramano cheese. If you cannot find an Italian cheese blend, Mozzarella cheese will do just fine.

Starting from the long side, carefully roll the dough up into a tube like shape. Remember to roll it tight. Pinch the sides to seal it.

Using a serrated knife, cut the rolled up dough into smaller pieces. Depending on the thickness of each piece, a roll should be able to make about 14-16 pieces of pinwheels.

Arrange the small pieces of dough on a greased cookie sheet. Put it in a preheated oven (375F) for about 12-15 minutes until golden brown.

Once you take it out of the oven, let it cool for a bit before serving. You can serve the Pepperoni Pinwheels with Marinara sauce as a dip.
