Pepperoni Pizza Pinwheels

What better way to celebrate National Pizza Day than with some pizza pinwheels?

Happy national pizza day! This is a holiday that we can all get behind at our house. These pinwheels are made using pre-made puff pastry from the freezer section, which this project easier than ever. The filling can be switched up too! We used parmesan and pepperoni – but try adding a little pesto, tomato paste, mozzarella cheese – or even do a classic ham and cheddar combo instead of pizza.

1 Sheet Puff Pastry, thawed

2 tablespoons Olive Oil

1 1/2 cups Parmesan Cheese, finely shredded

3 oz Pepperoni, chopped


1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Roll out the puff pastry sheet to a 10 by 16-inch rectangle on a silpat mat or large piece of parchment.

2. Brush puff pastry evenly with olive oil.Sprinkle with parmesan and chopped pepperoni. Roll up starting from the long side.

3. Slice into 1/2-inch pinwheels and place on silpat or parchment lined baking sheet, about 1/2-inch apart.

4. Bake 15-17 minutes, until golden brown and puffed.


To keep pastry pinwheels from puffing too much and unrolling while baking: be sure to place 1/2-inch apart on baking sheet with seams facing toward each other. As the bake and rise, they will end up touching each other – being close keeps them from completely unraveling. Simply separate pinwheels with the edge of a spatula after baking.
