We don’t need to tell you: Chef Joey’s nieces and nephews love these pinwheels!  Make ’em tomorrow for your posse, and be a bigger hit than the Easter Bunny!

Easter is upon us and the end of not eating chocolate for Lent.

Life is good – and so isn’t a snack!!!

I recently was asked to cater a party. They wanted pizza but bite-sized – so I suggested “pizza roll ups.” I got the same ol’ reaction, and I explained how it’s just a pinwheel and finger food and EASY to make.

So I made a few and took pictures, thinking I would share the magic with you all!

Recipe: PINWHEEL PIZZA ROLLUPS!

All you need is pre-made puff pastry – you can use the small sheets or the bigger ones.  Small sheets give smaller pieces – that’s all!

(My pictures are of the small sheets.)

Let the sheets thaw …

… and then place on a cookie sheet, covered in parchment paper.

Bake at 375 for 10 to 15 minutes.

Remove from the oven, let cool a few minutes … and slice!

Fast, easy, and you will be the star of your own show … for kids of ALL ages!
