If you’ve never made Pizza Pinwheels then you’re truly missing out! This bitesize, crowd pleasing appetizer is totally irresistible, super easy to make and tastes just like pizza. Loads of pepperoni and mozzarella are wrapped up inside a tender, flaky crescent dough crust. These mini pizzas are fun to eat, extremely dippable, and 100% kid approved. And did you notice there’s only 5 ingredients? I mean c’mon!! Perfect for game day, after school snacking and just about everything in between. You’ll be making this one again and again!
Here’s all you’ll need: pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, oregano, an egg, and crescent rolls.
Let’s get rolling! First we need to dice up that pepperoni into itty bitty pieces. Short on time? Try pepperoni minis instead! As if this recipe couldn’t get an easier.
In a small bowl, combine the diced pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, oregano, and the egg yolk. Only the yolk. Make sure to save the egg white! We’ll be using it a little later.
Next pop the top on that crescent dough and try not to jump! I know, I know. It’s near impossible. Unroll the crescent roll dough and pinch the seams closed to form one big piece.
Then spread the cheese and pepperoni mixture over top to within 1/4″ of the edges. Because what’s a pizza without loads of pepperoni and cheese??? I love this recipe because it’s really versatile. Switching up the cheese and fillings can give it a fun twist. Diced ham and cheddar would be a perfect pair! The possibilities are really endless!! Mmm mmm.
Time to get rollin’! Starting with the shortest side, roll up the dough jelly-roll style. This is how we get that amazing spiral. Pinch the seam closed to seal. Place the roll on a cutting board and cut into 12 equal sized slices. I start by cutting the roll in half. Then cut both of those halves in half. Then cut each one of those pieces into thirds. This helps to keep all my slices nice and uniform.
Place the slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. The parchment paper is so clutch here!! You know I love it but in this case it’s seriously a MUST! The melty cheesy goodness on the inside will easily stick to the pan and no one wants that. Oh and remember that egg white we set aside earlier? Well now’s the time to use it. Lightly beat the egg white and then brush it over the tops of the pizza pinwheels.
Bake in a 375 degree preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden. Serve warm with marinara sauce or Ranch if you’re crazy like that and watch them disappear. No seriously, you better grab one for yourself!
Look at that spiral though! That bubbly, delicious cheese gets me ever time. It’s always a good time for Pizza Pinwheels!! And if you haven’t discovered our Cheesy Pizza Dip yet, you’re gonna wanna put that one on the list, like, ASAP.

Who’s ready for some no bake cookies??? ME!! ME!! I AM!!! These cookies are SO easy to make that I ran a test run while babysitting my niece and nephew and made THEM do all the dirty work! The kids loved decorating these adorable cookies all by themselves. Ellie and her brother Nathan are two of my very best helpers in the kitchen. Ellie wanted to save them for her party (which was two weeks later! She’s so sweet!) but Aunt Lisa wanted to make sure they were fresh and fancy them up a little bit. You know, put that Aunt Lisa special touch on it!
Here’s all you’ll need: Nutter Butter Sandwich Cookies, Wilton Candy Melts, red hots or red sixlets, and sprinkles.
Place candy melts into a microwave safe mug. Melt and stir in 30 second intervals until completely melted.
Dip cookie into the candy melts about half way. Now watch me dip!! Now watch me nay nay!
Place cookie on a sheet of parchment or wax paper. Immediately add your sixlet (or red hot) for your cherry! Then add the sprinkles before the candy melts have a chance to harden. (sorry I don’t have a cheesy song lyric to add here!)
Here’s my Aunt Lisa special touch! This part is totally optional but I totally love it. Place a small amount of candy melts in a ziploc bag. Microwave for 30 second or until melted. Cut a small hole in one of the corners of the bag. Then add a little zigzag or swirly line along the bottom of the candy coating.
Repeat with all the cookies, allow candy coating to harden and you’re done! We used white, pink, and brown candy melts to represent vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate ice cream. I added some white candy melts mixed in with the brown to lighten it up a little bit.
