Skinny Pizza Pinwheels

Prepared by: Susan Mills-Gray,
Nutrition Specialist,

University of Missouri Extension

September 7, 2014


Yield: Makes 8 servings



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



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil, and spray with non-stick cooking spray. 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.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the sauce, seasonings, pepperoni, Parmesan cheese, and mozzarella cheese. Spread mixture out over the dough, spreading evenly with a spatula.
  3. Starting at the long end of the dough, start rolling until dough is rolled into a long skinny log. Cut into eight even rolls. Arrange the rolls swirl-side-up on the baking sheet, and bake for 15-17 minutes until slightly golden brown.
  4. 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.)
