Easy pizza pinwheels

Easy pizza pinwheels!!
1 can pilsbury pizza crust
Pepperoni (we had left over of both sizes)
Roll into a long cinnamon roll looking thing and you are supposed to cut it into 12 but I suck at sizing so I got 14.
Put them on a baking sheet
Bake at 425 I did 14 minutes and we are high altitude
Then I slathered in garlic butter, because why not


  • 1 can Pillsbury pizza crust
  • Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Pepperoni slices (both regular and mini-sized)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes (optional, for garnish)
  • Marinara sauce, for dipping (optional)


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Adjust the temperature and baking time if you are at a high altitude.
  2. Prepare the Pizza Dough: Roll out the Pillsbury pizza crust on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle shape.
  3. Add Cheese and Pepperoni: Sprinkle a generous layer of shredded mozzarella cheese over the entire surface of the pizza crust. Add a layer of pepperoni slices, mixing both regular and mini-sized pieces for variety.
  4. Roll into a Log: Starting from one of the longer edges, carefully roll the pizza crust into a log, similar to a cinnamon roll. Make sure to roll it tightly.
  5. Slice into Pinwheels: Using a sharp knife, cut the log into pinwheels. Aim for about 12 to 14 slices, depending on your preference and the thickness of the pinwheels. Place the pinwheels on a baking sheet, leaving a little space between each.
  6. Bake the Pinwheels: Bake the pizza pinwheels in the preheated oven for about 14-16 minutes or until they are golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  7. Prepare Garlic Butter: While the pinwheels are baking, mix the melted butter with garlic powder in a small bowl. Adjust the amount of garlic powder to your taste.
  8. Slather with Garlic Butter: Once the pizza pinwheels are out of the oven and still hot, generously brush the tops with the prepared garlic butter mixture. Make sure to cover each pinwheel evenly.
  9. Garnish and Serve: Optionally, sprinkle the pinwheels with dried parsley flakes for a pop of color and added flavor. Serve the pizza pinwheels hot with marinara sauce on the side for dipping.
