I know at least some of you are very disappointed that the Patriots aren’t playing in the Superbowl. And I understand, but you still have to eat during the game, right? I saw these Pizza Pinwheels from Recipegirl and knew I had to make them – with my own twist of course. Her recipe makes it look easy, and even has step-by-step photos!
There are so many possible variations on this recipe that my head was spinning. But for my first attempt, I decided to try a spinach-garlic flavor. The dough is pretty easy to work with, although I couldn’t roll it out quite as thin as intended. It’s also a little tricky to transfer the pinwheels onto the baking sheet, but it’s OK if a couple fall apart. The final product was still great; these pinwheels are both tasty and cute, which is exactly what you want for party food.
I am going to try other versions, but I couldn’t wait to share this one. You might want to make a trial version of these before the big day. My only regret was not having homemade sauce ready for dipping, and I won’t make that mistake again.
Spinach Pizza Pinwheels
1 c. self-rising flour (you don’t have to buy it; make your own here)
1/2 t sugar
2/3 c. 2% plain Greek yogurt
1 1/2 T garlic-flavored olive oil (such as Garlic Gold)
1/2 (10 oz.) package frozen spinach, thawed and drained
3/4 c. reduced fat cheddar and mozzarella blend, divided
Sift together flour and sugar. Add yogurt, and stir until blended. Use your fingers if needed to mix the ingredients into a smooth dough. Knead briefly on a floured surface. Roll into a large 8″x12″ rectangle.
Spread oil onto dough. Spread spinach on top of oil. Sprinkle 1/2 c. of cheese on top of spinach. Roll dough into a log. Cut into approximately 10 equal slices. Place each slice on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray or parchment paper. Sprinkle remaining cheese onto pinwheels.
Bake at 350F for 20-24 minutes, until lightly browned.
