In an effort to continue the ease of school lunches this year, I have made some extremely easy pizza spirals for the kids to grab out of the freezer in the morning. The beautiful thing about these spirals is the fact you can use just about any pizza toppings your kiddos desire. Let’s say you have a meat lover and a vegetarian (hey, it can happen!), you can easily adapt this recipe by making your spirals half and half!
Here’s what you need to get started:
- refrigerated pizza dough
- pizza sauce (about 1/2 cup)
- shredded mozzarella cheese (1/2 cup)
- pizza toppings (pepperoni, Italian sausage, veggies…etc.)
Preheat your oven to 400°.
Roll out your pizza dough, stretching a little as you go. Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce almost to the edges. Sprinkle with cheese and then add toppings.
Roll into a tight log.
Cut into 1″ or 1.5″ slices (or a little bigger if you have bigger eaters).
Arrange slices face up on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake at 400° for 15 – 17 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and crust is golden brown.
To freeze: place baking sheet in freezer for two hours, then transfer frozen pinwheels into a Ziploc bag.
Spirals can be taken out of the freezer that morning to enjoy for lunch that afternoon!
