Skinny Pizza Pinwheels

Makes 8 servings

  • 1 pkg of reduced fat crescent roll dough
  • ½ cup pizza or spaghetti sauce
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning blend
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ cup mini turkey pepperonis
  • 1/8 cup Parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup shredded skim mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil, and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Spread the dough out over the prepared baking sheet, gently pulling on all four corners of the dough to stretch the dough out a bit.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the sauce, seasonings, pepperoni, Parmesan cheese, and mozzarella cheese.
  5. Spread mixture out over the dough, spreading evenly with a spatula.
  6. Starting at the long end of the dough, start rolling until dough is rolled into a long skinny log.
  7. Cut into eight even rolls.
  8. Arrange the rolls swirl-side-up on the baking sheet, and bake for 15-17 minutes until slightly golden brown.
  9. Serve warm with pizza sauce for dipping if desired.

(Note:  If you cannot find seamless crescent dough, you can buy reduced fat crescent rolls and use a rolling pin to seal the "seams" together.)
