Pizza Pinwheels

I love savory bakes. This month for Home Baker's Challenge, Gayathri suggested few recipes. Now two of them really caught my attention, one was the chocolate rolls and the other was these pizza pinwheels. But since I love to try savory bakes, I chose these over the chocolate rolls. But I am sure I will try out the chocolate rolls soon.

These Pizza pinwheels are really easy to put together and taste delicious. They can be the perfect appetizers for your potluck lunches or kids birthday parties. They were a huge hit with my kids.

Now off to the recipe

Makes around 10 medium sized pinwheels

  3. Sugar – 1 tsp
  4. Olive Oil – 1 tbsp
  5. Milk – ¼ cup
  6. Water – ¼ cup

  1. Pasta Sauce – 4 tbsp (or as required)
