Whole Wheat Pizza Pinwheels

Looking for a fun recipe for parties, football games, or an afterschool snack? Try these Whole Wheat Pizza Pinwheels. I got the idea from this Pillsbury recipe, but I made it healthier by using my own Whole Wheat Pizza Dough, which adds fiber and takes out the trans fats and preservatives that come with refrigerated dough (plus it’s a lot cheaper!). This first time around, I just used sauce and cheese, but it would be easy to add in some chopped peppers, olives, mushrooms, or whatever toppings your kids love. I’ll take any opportunity to get more veggies into them.

Whole Wheat Pizza Pinwheels


  • Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • Vegetable toppings, finely chopped (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Roll out the pizza dough into a rectangle.
  • Spread the pizza sauce all the way to the edges.
  • Sprinkle cheeses over sauce.
  • Beginning with long side of rectangle, roll tightly into a log shape.
  • Cut pinwheels at 1/2-inch intervals, and lay each flat on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until side crusts are golden brown. Makes 18-24 pinwheels (depends on size of log).
